[Books] January 2020 Reads

I wanted to start 2020 right, and thus I tried to balance "smarter" reading choices so I wouldn't feel so pressured at the end of the year to read for quantity instead of just enjoyment. That meant making sure to cover a good mix of quick titles amid the more complex ones in order to set a good pace for the year.

I finished the month with 28 titles, just short of 31 titles had I covered a full book a day. It's not terrible, considering this broke down into 2 Star Wars novels, 14 comic book volumes and a whopping 12 audiobooks.

My efforts to finish up my Legends period books with the 9 different Fate of the Jedi titles took up the bulk of my book-based efforts, so the title I really wanted to highlight for this month is MIND MGMT, which I finally covered in a fairly speedy amount of time. It's an amazing series about psychic espionage agents with amazing abilities. There are so many different layers to this story (both in terms of the narrative and its imagery) that I know that I'll need to re-read this series a few times to fully understand all the possible nuances to this tale. This is a serious must-read and we'd all be better for it.

On the audiobook front, I covered a mix of self-help books on finance and leadership along with fluffier Classic Doctor Who audio dramas. I hope your reading for the year is off to a great start as well.
