I use Amazon’s “Idea Lists” to group books that seem related. Check out the titles I’ve saved, topic by topic. Some of these books I’ve already read, while others are books I’m curious about.
I choose to put each book on only one list so you won’t see redundancies when you browse multiple lists, although of course each book could be categorized in multiple ways.
Poems & Stories
History and culture & Biography and memoir
Literary appreciation and criticism & the craft of Writing
Democracy and power might lead to an interest in Capitalism, Neoliberalism, or War and collapse
Ethics and other human behaviors is my most “favorited” list! For a more specific approach, try Forgotten virtues.
Activism & Dialogue
Mistakes can lead you in a couple directions. A happy accident might lead you to feel Creativity and mindfulness, but intentional falsehoods are more about Disinformation, post-truth, fake news, lies.
Technology and science
Spirituality & Atheism
Basic questions about Consciousness lead to questions about Knowledge, feeling, and thinking and then to questions of who we want to be, which brings us to Coaching, advice, inspiration, and self-development.
