Books I Read in 2021

Dec 13, 2021

I hope to make this type of article a yearly feature. This lists most of the books that I read in the past year. I left out highly technical books and books that I started but abandoned. I've added brief comments after some books. Favorites are bolded. Books are grouped into broad categories. Some could fit in multiple categories, in which case I put them wherever I thought they fit best.

Literature and Fiction

War

Biography and Memoir

Narrative History

Popular Science and Similar Type Books

I generally avoid books of this sort since the signal to noise ratio is terrible and most of these books have enough content for a long magazine article at best, but sometimes they are the most convenient source of information.
