Best Books of 2020 – San Marco Books & More

Best Books of 2020     We’ve done the research and checked the lists for you.   Sometimes it’s easy to know what to read. Other times, it’s nice to have a recommendation. The question I get asked the most is, “Have you read that?” While I haven’t read all of the books on this list, I have read some and talked to so many people about the others. With all that 2020 took away from us, books were a way to connect, even if we couldn’t see each other face to face. So, here’s to the fiction and non-fiction titles that brought us together.   Note: If you click the title, it will give you more information about the book. If you’d like to order it and our website says it’s on backorder, just call. We have them in stock!   Happy New Year and Happy Reading, Desiree     Start 2021 With The Best From 2020   There are so many ways to organize this list. Most popular. Alphabetical by title. Alphabetical by author. Random. If you know me, random will never work, so alphabetical-by-author it is. If I missed books you think should be on the list, please email me!
