Happy Sunday, my lovelies. We're in the midst of planning our 2022 bookish adventures and having loads of fun with the bingo categories and coming up with new challenges. Meanwhile getting side tracked and adding to my TBR pile. So many good books. I went a little bit link happy while writing this week's post and figured out I need to have a better plan for actually reading all the books I've been acquiring.
Which lead me to The Art of Manliness, which is actually a wonderful site to explore.
I came across Why you need a Reading Plan detailing the importance of having a plan and sticking with it. I ditched my non fiction reading plan somewhere in the middle of the year and need to revise for 2022. I have a whole slew of nonfiction books on my shelves from memoirs like Trevor Noah's Born a Crime to Adam Savage's Every Tool's a Hammer to multiple writing books such as Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes by Maria Konnikova.
Stumbled across their article on The Best of the Marine Corps’ Reading Lists with many books my hubby will enjoy reading. Unfortunately it looks like The Art of War has been removed from the current list which is a must read for anyone. Caboodle lists it among the 10 non-fiction books that changed the world.
Today is the 170th anniversary of when Moby Dick was published. If you haven't read it yet, maybe 2022 would be the perfect time. Why read Moby Dick? makes the case for why and In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex gives you the real story behind the fiction tale. Another seafaring tale that captured my attention is Hampton Side's In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette. Both Philbrick and Hampton make history come alive.
Speaking of history and adventure, the Art of Manliness (A wonderful website to explore) lists The Essential Adventure Library: 50 Non-fiction Adventure Books.
Have fun following rabbit trails!
