Reading Goals and Book Recommendations Part 2

My reading goal for 2017 was accomplished. I read 125 books. Just barely.

Click here for the first half of 2017, when I read the first 93.

As you may notice, there are a lot less recommendations this time, just because I didn’t read as many great books after August.

Here are three:

Why Buddhism is True: The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment by Robert Wright: this book inspired me to start a meditation practice.

Dune (Dune Chronicles, #1) by Frank Herbert: a formidable classic that probably everyone who writes science fiction should read.

Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too by Jomny Sun: a balm for these trying times.

Because this list is so short, here is an amazing bonus book I read this year.

Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions by Johann Hari: about so much more than just depression and anxiety.

And finally, the worst book I read in 2017:

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein: “hate” is not too strong a word.
