The Guest List 2021

We asked the past year’s podcast-guests for the favorite books they read in 2021 and the books they hope to read in 2022 for our special year-end Guest List episode! Thirty guests participated, so listen to the show to hear about their picks, and use this page to check out all the books, as well as their past episodes!

Photo of my 2021 books (not incl. comics) by me. Some e-books are missing, of course.
