Books I Want to Read by the End of the Year

It is hard to believe but the end of 2020 is already starting its creep up upon us. I feel like I have done nothing worthy of note since December 31st but a pandemic and enthusiastic social distancing will do that to you. However, before this year winds down there is something I hope to accomplish. In January I made a list of books I wanted to get read during the year and, well, I have not been exactly successful with that. After culling the initial list, here are the books I hope to read by the end of 2020.

First the weather has been off since January, then COVID and the chaos and fear that has come with it, and now it is the end of May and I have no idea how we ended up here.
