What I’ve Read | 2022

Last year, I read over 25 books . I had set a goal of 30, but I still feel pretty good about it. I had some medical issues last year that made reading difficult. Those issues have been dealt with, so now it’s down to self-discipline.

If you’d like to see past reading lists, here’s 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015.
