Books I read in 2020

This year I read more books than ever, and I can't get enough! I lost my business due to the pandemic and got a regular job. My favorite thing about it is that it has me alone in a truck most of the day, which gives me ample time to listen to audio books and podcasts.


I read 51 books, which is about a book a week. My favorites are underlined. Please comment and let me know if you read any of these and loved (or didn't love) them or if you have any more recommendations for me based on this list.


I'm reading two books right now, which I can already tell will get the coveted underline, but I won't finish them by midnight tonight, so you'll just have to wait until next year to see what they are...
