2020 Reading List

So, that year was a whole thing unto itself, wasn’t it? Lots of time at home under lockdown meant lots of time to read. So, in the tradition of Sarah over at Dogs, Coffee, & Books, here’s my year in reading. 61 titles (63 if you count rereads I ended up doing within the year). Lots of classics this year as I buffed up on background reading for my World Lit courses. Also a lot of escapism because…well, 2020. (R) indicates a reread. Asterisks indicate titles I particularly enjoyed or found enlightening.

Happy New Year!
