I read a lot of books. (Unfortunately, I’ve never tracked all the books I read, though that’s definitely a goal of mine for second quarter.) I’m not the most adventurous person when it comes to reading books–I like what I like, as I am in every other aspect of my life. However, I’m trying to make a real effort to read books in different genres this year and power through my reluctance.
This has been made a lot easier by the fact that I have now joined a few book clubs, which I highly recommend doing. I’m trying to make a real effort not to suggest any books that I want to read because I’ll read the books I want to read, but I want to ‘expand my horizons’ and read some new books. That’s been successful so far, and I thought I’d write a quick snappy commentary post on 5 standout books I’ve read in the first quarter of 2021!
