Dave’s 2022 Book List

I read 39 books in 2022. That’s a bit short of my goal, but I read a pretty wide range of non-fiction books. I’m posting my five favorites along with my entire list as I get a lot of ideas about books I want to read from the recommendations of others. Please feel free to suggest your favorites. Happy reading in 2023.
