Books to read in 2022 for your New Year’s resolution | The sound of ideas

The start of a new year is a good time to think about how we want to improve over the coming year. Maybe your New Years resolution is to eat healthier, take more walks outside, or try meditation.

The Sound of Ideas team decided that our New Years resolution is to read more, and so this time we invited local bibliophiles to come over and give us their recommendations of favorite books to try in 2022. They will talk us of the best literary works including novels, non-fiction, poetry, etc. which should be on your reading list to feed your soul, educate you about the world, and just make you think. We will also explore the local literary scene to find out what gems we can discover right here in our backyard.
