Maria Popova’s Favorite Books of 2016

Anything I’ve read by Maria Popova from her blog, “Brain Pickings” has given me pause and made me think. So I want to share her “16 Overall Favorite Books of 2016”.

These books range from essays to myth but all contain wisdom, knowledge, and inspiration: thoughts and ideas that provoke emotion and change. If there’s just one book here that catches your eye or tugs at your heart, it’s worth the read.

I’m leaning towards The Gutsy Girl by Caroline Paul, and Upstream: Selected Essays by Mary Oliver. But who knows? I may journey into the realms of science or time travel or love.
