My Year in Books, 2020 Edition

I know I’m not alone in this, but I read less in 2020 than in 2019. I had a hard time focusing.

My goal was to read 100 books, and I succeeded, if only just. I finished 103 books this year. The titles ranged in length from 58 to 1,710 pages. Twenty-five of them were by or about BIPOC, which is quite an improvement from last year’s rather paltry 13 percent. I admit to being somewhat bothered that the percentage wasn’t higher, as I made a concerted effort to find and read such titles. However, this does point to a problem that many BIPOC authors have cited: they are not published as often as white authors.

You can find my complete list of titles here:
