My 2021 and 2022 Reading Lists

Leave a comment

Before I get into my 2021 and 2022 reading lists, let me make a couple of confessions:

  1. I’m sorry for my long absence. Like many of you, I’ve struggled during the pandemic to just keep up with life. It’s been so busy and draining that, as much as I wanted to write, I didn’t. And I decided not to make myself feel guilty for it.
  2. I didn’t read much in 2021 and 2022. I was just too emotionally spent. If you’ve followed this blog long, you know that most of my reading is on the topics of self improvement and business, not as much fiction. And I just didn’t have the emotional capacity or desire to dig into much of anything like that.

Instead, the one piece of media that did keep me entertained steadily throughout the pandemic (until recently) was The West Wing Weekly podcast. I was a huge fan of Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing TV show, and this podcast is total wish fulfillment. It features cast and crew from the show was well as many other special guests, and it is clear that the team behind this show all loved and respected each other—and had a lot of fun making it. Plus, the hosts are Josh Malina, who played Will Bailey on the show, and Hrishikesh Hirway, a friend of Josh’s and West Wing fanatic. They are so funny together and have great rapport. It was an excellent podcast and a bright spot during such trying times. I highly recommend it!

Okay, back to books!

As mentioned, it’s a short list! To be honest, it’s even shorter than I thought, ha!

What about you? What did you read and would recommend?
