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.
