Books in 2021

I’m still listening to books with the only exception being the physical books I bring along with me on camping trips in the van.

The books that have stayed with me
Ones I couldn’t stop thinking and/or talking about.

The Midnight Library
Nothing to See Here
All the Light We Cannot See
Why Fish Don't Exist

Ones I revisited

Getting Unstuck & From Fear to Fearlessness are recordings of Pema Chödrön giving talks on weekend retreats. I love listening to her and went back to both of these several times throughout the year.

Full list
