2020 Jan-Mar Book Review Rundown

23 books, 3 unfinished with no intention to finish anytime soon. 5 fiction, 18 nonfiction (would it be cheeky to count The Little Bitcoin Book as fiction?) Trends: non-fiction especially about business, identity, and climate science early on Biographies and Neal Stephenson towards the end I'll give a couple sentences of my thoughts about each book and a rating out of 10.
