Rewind.Replay- Books in 2020

At the beginning of 2020, I wanted to read some big fat books. I had Leonardo Davinci, Team of Rivals, and a few more. Thanks to lockdown, I could read all of them at my own pace, enjoying those big fat books. Also, the lockdown period has given me a lot of time to read a lot. I picked up a few authors whom I always wanted to read like, R.K.Narayan, Philip Pullman, Prem Chand.  

I got a chance to read James Thurber's works, thanks to Navnit for introducing interesting books and authors.  

These are the books, I read in 2020.

The book, that changed the way I think about people is Behave by Robert Sapolsky. This book helped me to be more reflective and not jump to conclusions about others' behavior. This book has also inspired me to take up a course in psychology to understand a few more concepts better. 

If there's any book, I'd love to pick up again, that would be  Leonardo Davinci's biography. Loved it. 

The Spy and the Traitor is the book, I casually picked it from Bill gate's list and couldn't put down the book.
