Here is a breakdown of the 40 books I read in 2020:
15 by male authors
6 Mysteries/Thrillers, 1 Horror
4 by Asian Americans, 5 by Latino Americans, 2 by African Americans
I had planned to read more science-fiction this year but somehow never got around to it. Instead, I seemed to have, for the most part, avoided genre fiction. I don’t usually set specific goals for a year. I choose reading material that draws my interest, such as Mary Trump’s Too Much Never Enough, or that is recommended by others, such as Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime. By that standard, it was a very good year.
