What I Read in 2019

In preparing to write this post, I have come to realize that I slacked in 2019 in terms of reading. My reading list is much shorter than in years prior. Improvement opportunity for 2020? Certainly. Even so, I learned a lot of great things in 2019. I hope that this list inspires you to pick up a new book and dive in over the holiday break.
