Top 3 Books in January


January was a tough month, both with reading and the number of new things staring. There are no clear “winners” this time: a few old acquaintances and some random picks. But there is no question which books deserve the number one spot. It is both entertaining, educational, suitable for the young and the not so young, and well-written, funny, heart-warming, devastating, and I could go on.

  1. The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett. YA Discworld book with more substance than many adult books out there. 
  2. The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins. This book was a problematic pick, as I have several concerns about it. It is educational, painting the near history in a new light. I’m okay with that, but the new revelations part is hurried, based on opinion and hearsay rather than research, making it questionable writing. But as a whole, it is a worthy book to read and challenge your notion about how the world works.
  3. Stark by Ben Elton. Satire about the world dying and rich and those responsible for it doing what they do best, avoiding reality. As a book, it has some good parts: the little info dumps and the side stories, but the characters oh how some of them made me grimace. So, another questionable pick for the top 3.

Thank you for reading! Have a great reading month.
