30. Thinking in Systems by Donella Meadows. This is a really interesting book, and I find my own difficulty in digesting and applying its concepts frustrating. I think I just need to… think about it more? Digest it more? Maybe try writing about it?
31. Guards, Guards! Pratchett is my go-to comfort author. When I want something to read before bed, something that’s like a mental cup of herbal tea, Discworld is there.
32. The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guin. I have owned this book for so long that the cover is bleached — memento of a reading list of classic women SF/F authors that I never actually got around to, er, reading any of. I finally opened this up last week and was blown away by the deftness and depth of her writing. No wonder this won (really) all the awards.
Last year I read 30 books, so things are looking good for my 2021 reading numbers.
