Year-end Lists 2023: Books


Every year, I spend the week between Christmas a New Year's Day linking the lists that sum up the past year. There will be tons of links, and you are welcome to scan them and check out just the one or two that may be interesting to you -or skip these posts entirely if there's a subject you don't care about. The series always begins with books, because those lists are available earlier than others. We will also cover 2023 in science, politics, people, animals, the internet, and whatever else comes across my screen that may be worth passing along. Meanwhile, somewhere in here you might find a new book to read!
