18 Books to Read at Home Over Your Holiday Break (Essence.com)

Twenty-twenty was a year of radical shifts and forced stillness. As we struggled keeping up with the flood of changes coming our way, poets and performers, even former presidents, sought to help us find our way through the wilderness in the pages of their stories.
Whether you're practicing solo social distancing or surrounded by a three ring circus, ESSENCE has rounded up some books to help you step away from pop up notifications and into a state of reflection and relaxation during your holiday. There's plenty of page turners to choose from.
