So glad to see Adam at Roof Beam Reader back hosting this challenge!

Here are the 12 titles I plan on reading in 2022. Books that have been collecting dust on my shelves for quite a while…
A mix of classics, fiction, nonfiction.
NB: some have a library label, but they are no longer in circulation and I bought them at my library some years back.
