Perhaps you'll consider reading The Swerve? I haven't finished it yet, but it's extremely interesting thus far. There are so many things I don't know in this world, and this book is a comforting reminder of that: of all the things there are to learn.
This, however, is not so comforting, but it is bracing:
"The pattern of dreaming and deferral and compromise is an altogether familiar: it is the epitome of a failed life."
Oof. But this book is so, so good.
Also so good? The new Mad Max movie. But that's another post.
