Hi all. My name is Ann and I live in the US. Although I'm new to ROOTs this year, I actually followed the 2022 group for about 6 months, so in a way I kind of feel like I've already gotten a decent grasp on how things work.

I made a list of approximately 103 books I own and I'd like to focus on reading some of them this year. For now, my tentative goal will be 20 ROOTs, as I don't want to get to overly ambitious. My only rule is I need to have owned the book, ebook, audiobook prior to January 15, 2023 for it to count in my stats. My plan is to read at least one nonfiction book off the list each month, in addition to the more numerous fiction books I've collected.

Wishing everyone a happy year of ROOTing here. Thank you to Cheli for continuing on and organizing the 2023 group.

Welcome to the group! Good luck with that kindle purchasing hiatus (I wouldn't dare impose anything like that on myself!).

Welcome to the group - I’m sure it will en a good experience for you. I regularly discover gems on my shelves. After all, there was a reason you bought the book in the first place.

My Favorite January ROOT:

The Song of the Cell by Siddhartha Mukherjee ★★★★★+

Part science, part history, part autobiographical in scope, Mukherjee manages to cover single cell biology all the way through current immunotherapy. He doesn't talk down to the reader, nor does he simplify the science of cellular biology too much. He shows wary elation over progress that's been made in the field yet readily admits there's multitudes that isn't understood by researchers. Worthy of 10+ stars, I read one chapter a day to soak the words in. (Originally posted on Litsy.)
