The 2024 Spring Reading Minimalist Guide

In the guide, we have dedicated one category to the “minimalist reader.”  Our Minimalist Reads list has six titles we highly recommend if you’re only planning to pick up a few reads this spring!  

It’s super hard narrowing an initial list of hundreds of books down to a third of the size and then narrowing them down to our top six.  So you can expect these reads to be across genres, beautifully written, compelling, thought-provoking, enjoyable, and great for discussions.
