What I read this year could loosely be described as “anticapitalist stuff”. It was enjoyable; a particular highlight was “How To Do Nothing” as I alluded to in last year’s book compilation.

Thanks to libraries, I also tried a whole lot more books this year that I gave up on, and I think that’s okay - it really exposed me to some ideas I hadn’t really thought about.

Next year, I want to continue reading more actual books, and less self help style books.
