« Books I've enjoyed

Last updated Jun 03 2020

I've set a goal of reading 12 books in 2020. On this page, I list the books I have read, am reading, or failed to read (started, couldn't finish)

I have a bad habit of reading plenty of 5-10 minute pieces, love anything technical, and consume plenty of podcasts. However, I struggle to sit down with a book. Taking my time back is an important goal of 2020 for me, hence the need to sit down and read.
