Organized Priorities Monthly Book Recommendation Recap

January 2022 – Recap of Past Recommendations

Each month (or so!) I try to recommend something that I have read, want to read, or may currently be reading, which may give you some value. The books may be business-related, self-help, home organization, or just entertainment. In an effort to jumpstart my return to the blog, here is a recap of some of the books from past recommendations.

Hopefully, you will find this list helpful in building a reading list for 2022. On a side note, if you want to jump start your reading, I recommend setting up a Goodreads profile and getting in on their annual reading challenge to set yourself a reading goal for the year.

Note: I am not compensated for any of these recommendations. This page does not include affiliate links.
