Nonfiction in 2020
- Jon Day: Homing: On Pigeons, Dwellings and Why We Return (2019). My remarks: Kind of similar to Ravenmaster. It's stories about his family and also racing homing pigeons.
- Irwin Weil: The Great Courses: Classics of Russian Literature. My remarks: The lecturer is passionate on his subject which helps liven the material.
- Daniel Todes: Ivan Pavlov: A Russian Life in Science (2014). My remarks: I wanted to know more about the veracity of the brainwashing described in Battle for the Mind attributed to Pavlov, but after finishing this doorstopper as the continuation of that can only add the aphorism: "science advances one death at a time."
- 1 book title omitted
Fiction books I've read between May, 2020 and December 31, 2020
- Ed McDonald: Crowfall (Raven's Mark Book 3) (2019). My remarks: Some grimdark. Has some personality.
- Tamsyn Muir: Gideon the Ninth (The Locked Tomb Trilogy Book 1) (2019). My remarks: Found this on the Hugo nominee list and it seemed readable. Necromancers in space.
