Better late than never….

The best books I read in 2019 - generally released in other years - are below. Where I have reviewed, the link leads to that review (not many reviews this year).

Below is the full list of books that I read in 2019 (with links where reviewed and starred if a re-read). The volume of my reading declined year-on-year again, with 61 books total (40 non-fiction, 21 fiction). Most of that decline came in the back half of the year when I spent a lot of time reading and researching around some narrow academic topics. 45 of the below were read before June. I could add a lot of children’s books to the list (especially Enid Blyton), but I’ll leave those aside.



Previous lists: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
