Reading in 2022

In addition to reading National Geographic and Adventure Cycling Magazine cover to cover every month, I read 30 books, an eclectic mix. Seven were re-reads of the Diva novellas by Delacorta. They did not age well but were fun to revisit regardless. I read The Road years ago and hated it. I liked it much more this time around, although it’s still very depressing. Richard Osman’s Thursday Murder Club books are great fun. Icebound was a pleasant surprise. (I hate the cold but love a good our-ship-got-stuck-in-the-ice tale.) All The Light We Cannot See deserves all the praise. As does The Poisonwood Bible. Many of these were bought for me as gifts, not a bad one in the bunch.

  1. I was gifted the Poisonwood Bible by a work colleague after he realized I lived in Africa while in the Peace Corps. I loved that book. Have you ever read The Snow Leopard? It was gifted to me by a work colleague while I was interning at the Air Resources Board while in college….it persuaded me to spend 4 weeks trekking alone in Nepal. Work colleagues really understand my reading tastes.

    1. Never read it but I know it’s a classic. I’m still getting over my 2 nights of hypothermia during my tour so it’s too early to think about going anywhere cold
