The year in books: 20 to recommend in 2020

The 3 books I recommend you not to waste time on are: "The Two Koreas", "The Price of Inequality", and "Ninety Percent of Everything: Inside Shipping".

The whole list

The 12 fiction books I most recommend are:

The only book I really didn't like was "Invisible Cities".
