2020 Reading List

2020 Rankings

I kept a running ranking as I read each of the 45 books from the 2020 Books of Titans reading list. Here is my final list. This is the list in order of most to least-enjoyable to me. It doesn’t necessarily reflect the overall quality of the book or its importance. Rather, these are the books that moved me, challenged me, or created great joy in me as I read them.
