In the Northern Hemisphere, it gets dark in December.
And worldwide, people buy gifts for whatever holidays they celebrate, and a lot of them are around the corner.
For both reasons, books!
Several organizations are buying a copy of the Almanac for their annual gifts, and if enough of us share enough copies, the world will change. It already is.
Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a magical romp, a heartbreaking love story and a ton of fun.
The Flavor Equation is a terrific cookbook and also a useful inquiry into taste. The audiobook was free with my membership, but I confess that the hardcover is a lot more useful and a better gift too.
Kafka on the Shore is a mind-bending coming-of-age story, and the audiobook is simply perfect.
All the Birds in the Sky is poignant, fun and it will make you think. A lot.
The Very Nice Box is a lovely book with a message that will resonate.
Whether it’s by candlelight or on a beach, I hope you have a lovely end to the year.
