This has certainly been a strange month in the United States with the outbreak of COVID-19. Thankfully I'm at home and am healthy. However, my reading plummeted and I completed zero books.

I started reading Ezra Klein's "Why We're Polarized," but when the spread of COVID-19 escalated, my brain just couldn't take a dense book on politics.

I tried reading some other books in March but I had real difficulty focusing on them. Here's hoping that things turn around (in more ways than one!) and my reading increases in April.

Another great month of reading! Cory Doctorow's "Radicalized" was my favorite of the month. It's a collection of four near-future science fiction novellas that I highly recommend.

"The Factory" was the most peculiar read of the month. It's a story by a Japanese author that very much reminded me of Kafka's "The Metamorphosis," without the insects. It's a quick read, so I'd recommend it, even if it's not something that sounds interesting.

Radicalized, by Cory Doctorow

Exhalation: Stories, by Ted Chiang

I Will Teach You to Be Rich, Second Edition: No Guilt. No Excuses. No BS. Just a 6-Week Program That Works, by Ramit Sethi

The Factory, by Hiroko Oyamada

A much better month than some recent ones! I tried reading "Watchmen" but just couldn't get into it, so I passed on it and moved on to other books in my queue.

The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company, by Robert Iger

The Fifth Risk, by Michael Lewis

Introducing Game Theory: A Graphic Guide, by Ivan Pastine, Tuvana Pastine, Tom Humberstone

As planned, I took the month of December off from reading. Too many holiday movies and events to enjoy, as well as vacation.

I'm back to my reading habit tomorrow, though, beginning with Alan Moore's "Watchmen."

Another month, another month of not much reading. And in the case of November, no reading. I travelled for a third of the month and then Pokémon Sword and Shield came out, so there you go.

Thankfully I already reached my goal for the year of 26 books, so it's okay. Who knows, I may take a break in December, too.
