To-Read Book List for 2022

It’s exciting what we have been able to do at the Naija Book Club. Every month, we pick a book to read — from a rich variety based on recommendation by members. So, in total we had 12 books. Some read 11, some read 5 and some read 1. Some collected extra sheets and read 37 😊. It’s usually not the quantity that matters, but the habit of reading.

With that in mind, I almost didn’t write this post about the books I plan to read in 2022, but so many have asked, seeing the reading list I made in 2020 and 2019. Therefore, I chose to continue that tradition. My read for 2021 will come up shortly, but you can find out about the 44 books I read in 2020 and the 41 books I read in 2019.

I share these lists every year for three reasons:

  1. To encourage others to read. I will not get tired of saying we need to read more as a people.
  2. To provide a list for those who don’t know where to start. With 50 books, there is a lot of options.
  3. To document my own personal book history. I take writing seriously because I know that a pen is many times better than the best memory.

Right now, it’s only right that we just dive into it.
