Best reads of 2020

Dec 30th, 2020

Annual traditions have to start somewhere! Every year, I try to read a good number of books. I used to set hard goals (eg “I’m going to read 50 books this year!”)… but I learned that optimizing a process for any metric tends to have unintended consequences. I found myself reading easier/shorter books, trying to rush through them, and sticking with boring books I lost interest in because I needed to “finish” it.

In any case, here is a sampling of the books I read this year. You can find reviews for some, as well as the full list of books and more at my Goodreads profile.
