Reading List for December 2021

2022 is now upon us, so that means it is time to provide the list of books that I read/listened to in December. I did not listen to a bunch of holiday-themed titles, only two, both of which I have listened to previously. I did listen to a total of 17 titles. 12 of the 17 were first time listens, or approximately 70.58%, which is more than two-thirds and the highest percentage of new listens in a single month so far.

Out of all of the items listened to, I would recommend “The Apollo Murders”. It is a good murder mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Plus, it’s written by an actual astronaut.

If any of the titles pique your interest, be sure to click on the link to bring up the information for the book.
