Since the night of the US elections, I haven't been able to muster much enthusiasm for fiction or reading in general. At the library today, I went a little overboard on the non-fiction, but I am hoping these bring me out of my reading funk.

 

1. Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future by Ill McKibben

    The basic premise is think and act locally.

 

2. Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street by Michael Lewis

    My third Lewis work of the year. He is going on my best of year list.

 

3. Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

    Too many people love this for me to pass it up. It is a National Book Award winner.

 

4. Busted: Life Inside the Great Mortgage Meltdown by Edmund L. Andrews

    I think we are still feeling the effects of the mortgage crisis/Great Recession.

 

5. Flash Points: The Emerging Crisis in Europe by George Friendman

    I feel I need more insight into geopolitical hot spots as I see another war in the US's future. I plan on reading more books (different regions) like this, but it is a start.

 

6. Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right by Jane Mayer

    This is a contender for GoodReads Best of the Year 2016 for non-fiction.

 

7. Information War: American Propaganda, Free Speech, and Opinion Control Since 9/11 by Nancy Snow

   I picked this one up off of OverDrive.

TBR Thursday #100

Moonlight Reader started the TBR Thursday, and I think it's a good way to a) show what new books I've got and b) confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR. In fact, since I started recording it, it has risen significantly. I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong here...

TBR Thursday

I think I'm behind on these, but here's a "good enough" list.

 

Last weekend I went book shopping in an effort to support my local entertainment store. I picked up these, along with a few of C.J. Cherryh's Foreigner books, random volumes they had in stock.

 

Kevin Keller Vol #2: Drive Me Crazy - Dan Parent  Chobits Omnibus Edition Book 1 - CLAMP  The Dinosaur Lords: A Novel - Victor Milán  

The Dark Griffin - K.J. Taylor 

 

I also picked up the Haikasoru Storybundle, have plans to get the Historical Fantasy Storybundle, and received an e-ARC of Claudie Arseneault's City of Strife.
