As a tumultuous year draws to a close, we gathered together ABA Journal editors and reporters to discuss what the past year has been like for them as readers. With the stress of the pandemic and national elections, how had their reading habits changed? Were they concentrating on current events or comfort reads? With our offices operating remotely, did they have more time for reading?
Modern Law Library host Lee Rawles spoke to Victor Li, assistant managing editor, and staff writers Lyle Moran, Amanda Robert and Stephanie Francis Ward to find out which books (and podcasts) helped them make it through 2020—and what listeners could be adding to their own 2021 reading lists.
