The colder and the darker it gets, it’s time to cozy up and stay inside for soul food, tea and good books. I feel like I’m slowly counting the days to have some relaxing holidays soon, since this year was so crazy busy. I can’t wait to read new books and just do nothing else. Here is my personal list of pre & post-holiday reading and to say Goodbye to 2022 with books.
Here are the books you should order soon:
The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture, by Dr. Gabor Maté
A book that this world needs right now– to read bout how toxic our society is and how to make things better.
And There Was Light: Abraham Lincoln and the American Struggle by Jon Meacham
Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer and #1 New York Times best-selling author Jon Meacham: “We live in a divided country, and so it makes sense to examine the man who was president when the nation suffered an actual schism. Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian Jon Meacham approaches Lincoln through his education and evolution as a thinker, setting those experiences in parallel with the practical work of politics, grounded by the reality that Lincoln, like all of us, was an imperfect human being. What emerges is a man who very early developed principles and a moral center that would guide him through the highs and lows of his political and personal journey. If one is to take away a message from this highly readable, deeply researched book, it’s that fallible people can achieve great things when they are guided by clear ideals. This book belongs in the upper echelon of Lincoln biographies. —Chris Schluep, Amazon Editor”
