Do you like discovering great books?

Let’s Talk Books is a book newsletter focused on philosophy, history, and literature. Each post centers around a book I recently read that got me thinking.

If I had to sum up my reading interests, it’s probably a search for wisdom. How should we think? What’s this world, this situation, this moment, we find ourselves in? What’s the best way to face life? And not just any life, but this one?

As always, I love book recommendations. Send me yours. Some of the best books I’ve ever read came into my life unexpectedly from a friend’s suggestion.

I also accept reviewer copies of new releases. If you have a new book coming out related to topics covered in this newsletter, please let me know about it.

Let’s talk books.

“What is the future? What is the past? What are we? What is this magic fluid that envelops us and hides from us what most we need to know? We are born, we live, we die surrounded by wonder.”

~ Napoleon Bonaparte, Letter to Josephine, 1796
