My Reading in 2020

For 2020 I’m keeping a running log of my reading here on my personal website. You can find all my updates on this page, going from newest to oldest.

(I don’t have commenting set up here yet so if you have something to mention to me, find me on twitter (where I am also sharing some of these updates) and “@” me.)


Book Review - The Roots of Rap

Posted: 2020.02.12

I want to give this all the awards. It probably should have gotten even more awards than it did.

(A little ashamed to admit that I’m just finally getting around to this, but I’m repenting of my unreading ways and doing what I can do now. And despite my claims to keep track of all my reading here in 2020, I’m back on Goodreads as well, I guess…)

My Reading in 2020

Posted: 2020.01.10

I used to be meticulous about tracking even my most minute reading updates on Goodreads1, but I’ve fallen off in the past few months, and I’m not entirely sure why.2

In the meantime while I try to figure that out, I’ve decided to post random3 updates4 about my reading on Twitter and also to experiment with creating a new thread/series here on this website that will serve as a running log of my reading life.
