Inspired by Peter Boxall’s 1001 Books: You Must Read Before You Die, at the beginning of 2018 I decided to create my own list of books to read. What amazed me the most is just by creating this list I gained quite a bit of inspiration and historical insight. That’s something I wasn’t expecting, but made me even more excited to read some of these books.
This list contains both fiction and nonfiction selections I’m interested in reading for one reason or another. Many were recommendations from friends or books that won some kind of award. Some of the books on the list will be books I’ve read in the past, but want to read again to see if I glean anything new from them now that I’m older and hopefully wiser. All of the books are of interest to me. You’ll notice a good deal of psychology, philosophy and science books on the list.
