Books I'm Reading

In 2020, I’ve set my Goodreads target to 80 books. I just about made it last year, albeit with some cynical swiping of slim volumes over Christmas to make up the numbers. As ever, I hoped I could read a lot of good fiction (my tendency is to fall down a rabbit hole of fiction on one topic). Events have since intervened and I’ve ended up very slowly getting through The Power Broker, a tome of a biography of Robert Moses. I also spent a month or so on Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America too, in the midst of the renewed movement for Black lives in the US in summer.
