What I Read in 2022

I spend many hours a week in the car, commuting 250 miles each way for work. So, “reading books” has become “listening to books.” I immersed myself in most of these books through my ears rather than through my eyes, which has become a new way of experiencing a story, a set of ideas, and getting to know the characters, real or imagined.
