Books I read in 2021
A list of all of the books that I read in 2021.
As part of this year's review, I wrote a little bit about how I'd been tracking which books I'd read on a website called Oku (originally Readng), but that I'd been a little underwhelmed by the application in general and that I was going to start keeping track of my writing on this website instead (along with everything else).
For that reason, and to prevent me from losing my record if Oku ever shuts down, I'm moving that list of read books over here. So without ado:
- Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin
- The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel
- Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell
- Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol
- Child of God by Cormac McCarthy
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (re-read)
- A Kestrel for a Knave by Barry Hines
- We by Yevgeny Zamyatin
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker
- No One Is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood
- Crucial Conversations by Gregory, Grenny, McMillan, Patterson, and Switzler
- The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
- No Longer Human by Osamu Dazai
- Siddhartha by Herman Hesse
- Touching the Void by Joe Simpson
- In the Miso Soup by Ryu Murakami
- The Arrest by Jonathan Lethem
- Story of His Life by Geronimo
I'd set myself a goal of reading 20 books in 2021, and I made it—so next year's goal is 25.
A look back at everything that I did (and didn't do) in 2021.
There are plenty of Linux distributions that look like macOS, but most offer skin-deep changes and don't adhere to the ethos of macOS. These settings do, while allowing you to continue using the Gnome environment.
