Every year it shakes out roughly the same way: we begin January with a set of goals and hopes for the year ahead; we achieve some, abandon the rest, and along the way, we learn lessons.
Not so in 2020. By March, our goals for 2020 felt promptly dashed, and the lessons we learned weren't alway the ones we expected. Many centred on taking better care of ourselves and others, our relationships, how we approach mental health, and having our perceptions of socio-political issues like racism and class changed forever.
As we head into 2021, we’ve collected a list of the books that can help continue that learning, and maybe even just change your life for the better.
How to scale back capitalism to save the environment
How to establish your ideal work life
How to protect your data and privacy
How to raise empowered young women
How to be antiracist
How to effect change
How to push against oppressive caste and class systems…
… and learn from the past
How to take care of our bodies
How to breathe
How to trust our instincts
