December 2022 reading list

December 22

  • Billy No-Mates by Max Dickins
  • The Happiest Man on Earth by Eddie Jaku
  • Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell
  • The Making of the Modern Middle East by Jeremy Bowen
  • Safe Area Gorazde by Joe Sacco
  • The Peter Principle by Laurence J. Peter & Raymond Hull
  • Complicit by Max Bazerman
  • The Moth and the Mountain by Ed Caesar
  • The Vegan Beef” Guide by Lyanna K. Peterson

Somewhat electic mix this month — an excellent graphic non-fiction book by Sacco is well worth the time. I read Down and Out in serial form via the Orwell Foundation Substack. Complicit was a well-timed book for me given my work situation and Billy No-Mates was more thorough and comprehensive than I expected. It just pips the others to my book of the month recommendation.
