2020 Reading List

Updated: Feb 4

For complete transparency and clarity, this post features book(s) we’ve personally read and continue to re-read, but we do receive a small commission from any sales to help keep free content available at the Dojo. If you do decide to pick up one or two of the following, we send grateful fist-bumps in advance for your support.

'Tis once again the season we nerd out and reflect on our reading list of the past year 🤘🏼

2020 - in all its chaotic glory - saw us read a total of 25 books, which, encouragingly, is up 25% on our number in 2019.

Perhaps due to the year that was, 6 of the 25 were tagged # spirituality (no doubt for that much needed surrender) while another 6 were tagged # finance (no doubt for that much needed security).

For your ease of perusal, here's the full list ordered alphabetically (by author's first name) and tagged by category.

And if reading physical books isn't your jam, the vast majority are also available as audiobooks via the links below.
