The year of 2019 ended, it’s time to get a retrospective about the year readings. I read less than I would like but nevertheless it was a year of wonderful discoveries. Any type of review is tricky. Unless you are an expert on the subject matter, any review says much more about the author of the review than about the subject. What I’m writing here are just a couple of paragraphs about what the books did for me, not trying to put myself on the shoes of any book critics.
