The books I read in 2020

I’ve got to say, I’m pretty disappointed with my book-reading efforts this year. Not sure what to blame it on—I mean, I guess I could just say that 2020 was FUCKED and get on with it. Actually, I’m going to do just that.

Most years there’s a standout (and for me, usually evergreen) topic that I end up obsessing over, often for the nth time (e.g., pathology of serial killers, evolutionary psychology, evolution generally, Howard Hughes, Hitler, etc.), but this year I was kind of all over the place.

I fully regret having put so much time into reading tell-all books about Trump (some of which I’m not even listing here because I’m embarrassed). I’m ashamed to say that the reality-TV junkie in me took hold, and I couldn’t get enough of the palace intrigue surrounding the orange clown.

The one constant for me continues to be quantum physics: between the tail end of 2019, 2020, and most certainly 2021, it’s a subject that I just can’t seem to get enough of. While I read just a handful of (quantum) physics books in 2020, I have a ton of them lined up for 2021.

(All of the books below have been added to my main books page, where I (try to) track all of the books I’ve read.)
