2020 Books Read in Review

It goes without saying that 2020 was a weird year for all of us but in many ways, it allowed me the time to read a lot more than I have in most years previously. The launch of The Deckle Edge Podcast helped too, as I try and read everything I can the author has written before the interview. When I scan this year’s list, a good number of books like Chop Wood, Carry Water by Joshua Medcalf and Relentless by Tim Grover feel like they were read a lifetime ago, while others remain fresh in my mind. Some were short, beautiful picture books like Jesus: God Among Us by Roger Hutchison or I Talk Like a River by Jordan Scott, while others like Toward a Philosophy of the Act by M. M. Bahktin or Regarding the Pain of Others by Susan Sontag were complete slogs. In any case, thanks for reading (and listening!) and I hope you find something on my list that intrigues you for 2021!

If you’d like to leave a comment below, I’d love to know your favorite book of 2020. Also, what should I be reading in 2021 and who should I try to get as a podcast guest?
