As I reflect on my new year’s intentions for 2022, the shelves upon shelves of spiritual and self-help books I’ve acquired — but not read — in the past several years stare at me, a bit judgmentally. Ah, the person I imagine myself to be coming into conflict with the person my actions make of me.




Book reviews and recommendations in a casual, conversational style. Our goal is to sit around the table and talk about books like you talk about them with your friends.
