A (short) list.

In 2017 there was the Year 33: A Reading List, in 2018 A Reading Party, and in 2019, the #Dymocks52Challenge.

Fun fact, each year I challenge myself to “read more” (and am proud to say the last three years have delivered a trifecta of new year resolution success!). Fail fact, 21 books is not 52! Meh, there’s always 2020.

Now, without further ado:

  1. Rich People Problems — Kevin Kwan
  2. Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less — Greg McKeown
  3. The Strange Library — Murakami
  4. The Younger Man — Zoe Foster
  5. Aleph — Paulo Coelho
