One of the best things about this newsletter is that so many clever, inspiring people from different backgrounds all over the world read it. Once a year, I leverage this to everyone’s benefit. It's time for the Weekly Filet Book Club again.
It's simple: You recommend one book, and get dozens of recommendations in return. This year, I felt like we could all use some reasons to feel hopeful. Non-fiction, novel, poem, play, just published or centuries old, doesn't matter. It's all up to you — just tell us about a book that makes you feel hopeful.
Here's how it works:
1️⃣ Submit your recommendation
2️⃣ Invite a friend or two to share a recommendation, too (via email, via twitter, plain link to share)
3️⃣ I compile everything and share it back to you in a few weeks
4️⃣ Everyone happy
I'm very much looking forward to all your recommendations!
PS: While you're waiting for this year's recommendations to be published, have a look at the 100+ books that have been recommended by the community in previous years. I have finally found the time to build a dedicated page for the book club. So whenever you need some inspiration on what to read next, there's plenty to choose from. Big thanks to John Battalgazi for the custom-made illustration!
PPS: If you're easily overwhelmed by all the books you could read...once you know the concept of the antilibrary, everything will feel lighter.
