What I Read in 2020

I set out to read 12 books for myself this past year, as I always participate in Goodreads Reading Challenge. This list feels so small compared to what once was in my reading adventures, but most of the books I read now involve Chase, Pikachu, and Peter Rabbit. If I don’t enjoy a book, I don’t continue reading them. If I didn’t finish them, I don’t mark them as read, so in addition to this being a list of books I read in 2020, it’s also the list of books I enjoyed reading in 2020.


Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (I have to note that I’m not a romantic fiction reader and this book was a little too steamy for comfort…but the whole of the book and the series is wonderful. I haven’t enjoyed a good fiction book like this in a few years.)

Covered Glory by David Phillips

Your Guide to the Jewish Holidays by Cantor Matt Axelrod

What do Jewish People Think About Jesus? by Michael L. Brown

Let’s be friends on Goodreads & track the books you read (or the ones you want to read). I’m open to suggestions for 2021.
