“She read books as one would breathe air. To fill up and live”

Annie Dillard

Greetings!

This year, one of my goals was to read 52 books, ideally reading a book a week. I was on target to reach my goal when I read an article saying the most successful people in the world read 60 books a year! Well, I certainly couldn’t let the most successful people in the world “one up” me, so I changed my goal to read 60 books instead of 52. As of 12/19/22, I read 80 books, completely smashing my goal!

According to the Pew Research Center, the average American reads an average of 12 books per year, while the typical American has only read 4. If you’re reading this, I’m certain you’re anything BUT typical or average.

I want to share with you the books I read this year, with the intent to inspire you to read, read, and read some more in 2023.

I’m also going to share my favorite book from each genre and my top 10 books of 2022 That I think everyone should read.
