2021 Reading List
Nearly every book on this year’s list is part of a series of books. I’ve wanted to read a lot of these books for many years and have never gotten around to them. I’m dropping the 52-book requirement this year as most of these books are longer than usual.
Books 1 – 7
The Chronicles of Narnia
These are some of the first books I remember reading as a child and I’ve never read the full set.

The Robert Caro Series
I’ve started off with the LBJ series but added in Working and The Power Broker after being so thoroughly impressed with the four LBJ books.
