You probably know this, but Paul Randal is an avid history reader and he seems to manage to get through a huge number of books each year. He publishes a list at the end of the year with his favourites etc. and I've often chosen some reads from his list, often things I would not have found / chosen.
He did something a bit different for end 2020 https://www.sqlskills.com/blogs/paul/2010s-the-decade-in-books/
so 2019 is the last year of his normal "The year in books" blog post https://www.sqlskills.com/blogs/paul/2019-the-year-in-books/
and links to earlier years https://www.sqlskills.com/blogs/paul/category/books/
and then there are the statistics that he chooses to log https://www.sqlskills.com/blogs/paul/2020-review-the-year-by-the-numbers/
Seems like "If you want something doing ask a busy person" applies 🙂
