60 Weeks 60 Books

60 Weeks 60 Books

Zeba Clarke

In about 60 weeks, I am going to hit 60 years. That’s a big number. It makes you think about what you have done, where you have been, what matters to you. My greatest passion has always been reading, whether that was listening to people read to me, or once I grasped the essentials, reading myself. So this year, I am going to talk about 60 books. I have chosen most of the books already, ten for each decade of my life. Some are classics, some are anything but classic, but I chose them because they shaped me in some way, had some form of lasting impact, and in many cases, are regular re-reads. I hope this will amuse, inspire and entertain you.

This book was inspiring enough to make me try my hand at my first YouTube book review. And rereading it made me angrier than ever about the way our world is going: the materialism, the populism, the trivialisation and banality, the excessive worship of money and hectoring charlatans. I could go on, but I urge you instead to read Ordine's book which is an impassioned plea to preserve what is best and wisest about us puny humans.
