Five good books I read in 2020

On a more personal note

I strive to read good books. Of course, defining what makes a good book is is very subjective. In my case, good books challenge my understanding of the world in which I live. That might sound too broad (and ambitious) of a goal, and probably it is. I tend to read all kinds of different books: novels, essays, classics, with non-fiction gravitating towards topics such as history, science, and, only more recently, economy and finance. As you might have guessed from the list above, lately, I have been reading classics a lot. I don’t read too many programming or computer science books. Not these days anyway. As I get older, I prefer to distance myself from the topics I focus on at work all day long.
