Every Book I Read in 2019


2020 has arrived. This means it is time for my annual tradition: listing every book I read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year previous, with my ten favorites bolded. You can find my past entries here (2018), here (2017), here (2016), here (2015), here (2014), and here (2013). As in those posts, I list cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 books in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 approximate order in which I finished cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. Some of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se books (like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poetry ones) I read bit by bit over several months. One—Majorie Garber's outstanding Shakespeare After All—I started five years ago.

For this year's post I have included a url for every book read; cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ten best (according to nothing but my own subjective judgement) are bolded and given a link. I only count books that I finished for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time this year as eligible for "ten best books of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year." A more condensed list of books that I started but did not finish can be found at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 post.

You will notice that I read a lot of Shakespeare this year. This was sort of accidental. Early in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year I found myself with an evening to kill in a Siem Reap hostel. I had purchased several books on Theravada Buddhism to read while in Cambodia, but as I sat in hostel lobby, sweating in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 heat of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Cambodian dry season at its height, exhausted from a day spent being punched about by Khmer boxers, I discovered I just did not have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 energy to devote myself to Buddhist scriptures. I looked for something more light hearted on my kindle and found cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cheap electronic copy of Shakespeare's works (minus Henry VIII, Two Noble Kinsmen, and Edward III) I had picked up several years before. That would do. Soon I had blasted through cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 comedies. At that point I figured I might as well read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Shakespearean corpus now that I have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 comedies down. Over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year I read according to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se figurings.

I wrote several blog posts about Shakespeare over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year, though I am afraid I do not have anything deep to say about Shakespeare as a whole. I will say that I thought King John was an excellent play and I do not at all understand its poor reputation. The ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r shocker of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 corpus was Hamlet. I read Hamlet first in high school—and thought it entirely unremarkable. So unremarkable, in fact, that it is one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 books that I read in high school but which I cannot recall what my teenage self thought about it. (In contrast, my teenage self had very strong opinions about Wucá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ring Heights, The Awakening, Heart of Darkness, Nineteen Eighty-Four and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dozen or so ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r books he read during my junior and senior years, and I remember cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se keenly). This reading could not have proved a greater contrast: cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 play shook me. Hamlet was a deeply emotional and unsettling experience this year. The play is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same. The difference is found in myself. In fact, I do not think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 play would have had cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same impact had I reread in just two years earlier. But my life has changed greatly in those two years, and Hamlet spoke to those changes in a way few ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r works of literature have managed.

Which should make you wonder: how many great works of literature have you read, but failed to appreciate, simply because you were not in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 proper life stage to appreciate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m?

Pretty sure you're already aware, but Hugo Mercier has a new book coming out Jan 28. Of course I've pre-ordered it. Reminded of this by seeing Enigma of Reason on your list. One of my all time favorites. Changed my views on how/what reason works.
