Books I read

This page lists some the books I’ve read since 2019. For some books, I wrote a review. If such a review is available, I provide a link to it.
Note about the scores: I’m not a literary critic. The rating reflects my subjective, personal, uneducated reaction to a book. If a book is considered as a masterpiece by “everybody,” but I gained no new knowledge or skill out of it (maybe, I already knew most of the stuff), I will score it low.

When available, the links lead to my reviews.
