"Ten years ago, a lot of book recommendations came from word of mouth and print media. The new arrivals section at the library or bookstore wasn't just for grabbing that book you saw on TikTok. We were freshly reeling from the death of Borders. Amazon was mostly for books. The physical bookstores had more books, fewer games. Book release parties, though slowing down, were still a thing. The books were different, too. 2013 was all about dystopian YA novels, love triangles, and calm self-help books. Pop culture ruled the nonfiction shelves. With 10 years gone, some of these books are hilariously outdated, while others shine on."
Note: First 10 are the ones still worth reading.
