alt text This year I manage to read only 16 books from the 19 targeting this year.

This is 2 books more than I read in 2019, but 2 less compared with 2018. I also read 33% from This is happiness by Nial Williams, but I founded so boring even the writing style is good, that I am not sure I will put the effort to finish it. I managed to read 5005 page, the shortest book being "Unlimited memory" of 136 pages and longest "The secret hours of 608 pages". Average length in 2020 is 312 pages. From 16 books, 7 non-fiction, 3 biographies and 6 fictions.
