The Infophile's Must-Read Books of 2020

The Infophile's Must-Read Books of 2020

I wanted to share some of the books I read this year that I consider must-reads. [...] If you’re interested in hearing me talk about some of these books on an episode of the All the Books! Podcast, I’ll link those specific episodes as well. I’m not going to say too much about the books, just know that I’ve read 111 books so far this year and these are the ones that I feel very strongly should be read.

Patricia Elzie's Infophile newsletter is must-read and so of course her reading list for 2020 is incredible.

Schomburg Center's Black Liberation Reading List for Adults

New York Public Library has a list of 94 books! I've read a few. I definitely should read many more.

“The general idea is I have a list that contains lists of books. A list of books can contain books directly, or only be a link to that list of books. A list of books can be one of my own lists on my own domain, or it can be a list published by someone else on a different web address.”
