Books 2019

One of the things I wanted to do in 2019 was to carve out time to read more books again – especially since I had a three month sabbatical over the Spring. To that end, I kept track of what I read. It’s a mishmash of music bios, fiction, and non. I’ve only included books that I actually finished, and left out anything that was purely for academic purposes.

    1. The sabbatical helped! And ooh interesting question. I liked… 21 and 22 for Internet law stuff. The former is more accessible and shorter. I liked 24 as it had some really interesting insights into how language develops online. For fiction I liked 7 and 32… A few of the short story books were great too, like the one from Limmy… too many to list! If there’s any specific genre you like I can recommend from that maybe ha
