February – April 2021 Book Log

My book log has fallen on hard times. I’m finding it impossible to find time in my schedule to write full book reviews as has been my custom over the years. Yet, my reading has not slowed. The book log appears to be moving from reviews to merely a book list.

So here’s my book list for the months of February, March, and April. My book total for 2021 currently sits at 36 books.

(I must always clarify that I read many books with which I disagree. I learn the most by reading things that do not represent my position.)

Here are the 12 books I read in February:
