Another year and I have reached four years of making this list! My long list for this particular topic last year was: 2021 Long List I: Inspirational and/or Informational.
Non-fiction and some kinds of fiction fall under these categories. These are books that I for something out of, more than just the sheer enjoyment of reading a good book. I have split the books (and the reviews linked to the covers) into sub-categories that work if you give some leeway as to what the umbrella usually covers.
It has been an interesting year, and I am going into the next with positive thoughts! I hope this list gives you something to think about as well.
