Book Log

Here I maintain a list of the books I’ve been reading. I got the idea from Matt Bell. These aren’t recommendations (those you can find in my newsletter or blog), just a list of what I’ve been picking up.

I do include things I didn’t finish, provided I’ve read an appreciable fraction of the material. I think it gives a good impression of shifts in my interests.

The list isn’t complete, especially pre-2014. You can also see a noticeable dip between 2017-2020, when I was working on my PhD.
