Yesterday was my 30th birthday, and I put up a Facebook post requesting book recommendations as a present on my birthday. I’ve done it the last couple years, and got a lot of very interesting suggestions.
I read every day and try to go through 50+ books a year. One, because I’m curious about the world, and two, because it gives me a chance to take a pause from the rush of daily life and to simply think quietly.
The following is a selection from the recommendations I received, specifically books that I have not read and that look interesting. There were of course a lot of excellent suggestion for books I’ve already read like Master and Margarita, The Sound and Fury, Catch 22, The God Delusion, Immortality, Augustine’s Confession, etc.
I look forward to exploring these in the months to come.
