What we’re reading: Our 2021 book recommendations
There's something about winter that makes us want to curl up with a blanket, tea, and a book.
Written on December 15, 2021 by Christina Blust
This year, between the two of us, we read some interesting and inspiring non-fiction that we thought we’d share with you! Some are “work”-related and some less so, but all of them made us think.
Our somewhat arbitrary list of good books
- Everyday Information Architecture (Lisa Maria Martin)
- Content Strategy for the Web, Second Edition (Kristina Halvorson & Melissa Rach)
- Building a StoryBrand: Clarify Your Message So Customers Will Listen (Donald Miller)
- Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style (Benjamin Dreyer)
- How to Say It: Choice Words, Phrases, Sentences and Paragraphs for Every Situation (Rosalie Maggio)
- The Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future (Ryder Carroll)
- Thick: And Other Essays (Tressie McMillan Cottom)
- Mending Life: A Handbook for Repairing Clothes and Hearts (Nina and Sonya Montenegro)
- The New Plant Parent: Develop Your Green Thumb and Care for Your House-Plant Family (Darryl Cheng)
Your local library or book store may have many of these! Also, we really like Bookshop.org for any books you’d like to own a copy of. (They’re a good alternative to Amazon that instead supports independent book stores).
What did you read this year?
We love reading interesting things! If you have any books you’d recommend for us, we’d love to hear about them in the comments.
