Notes:

The limiting factor in my reading again this year was availability of books I wanted to read. I kept running out of books I was interested in and ended up reading what I could find even if the books didn’t much appeal to me. I feel like I spent a lot of time not reading much of anything.

As usual, most of my non-fiction reading is online these days, in the form of essays and articles. I read several hundred pages of law for a Constitutional change class I took in the fall.
