Year-end Lists 2022: Books

Hey, it's time for the annual look back at the ending year that I do between Christmas and New Year's Day! While some folks are off work and many are out of school, and the rest of us are just goofing off anyway, we can take stock of 2022. I always start with books, because those lists come out in early December and there are plenty of them. Pick an appropriate list, find out what you haven't read already, and make a reading list for 2023.
