Adding to my collection of books. I'm currently reading these two:
Boomerang: Travels In The New Third World by Michael Lewis
A very interesting read on the goings-on around the world leading up to and during the financial crisis of 2007-08. The book depicts the bad actors, poor decision making, immorality, and opportunistic attitudes all in the name of making it rich. There were many contributors to the economic turmoil of these times, and there are just a few interesting and humorous examples of the finance debacle.
I'm only three quarters of the way through, and I'm looking forward to finishing this book in the near future.
The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham
It's yet another one of those books that is on so many investors, entrepreneurs, and wise people's lists. I figured I need to see what it's about for myself. I mean, if Warren Buffet swears by this text, then it's gotta be a must-read, right?
I've just started it, and I hope to keep interested to make it all the way through. It's somewhat intimidating, but it was written to teach and inspire right?
I'm sure I'll pick up good value investment concepts by the end of the read, if not immediately.
I'm looking for a new fiction book to read and add to my list. I often pick up non-fiction books because of my interest to continuously educate myself, but I know I need fiction in my life to stoke the imagination, creativity, and add some color to my otherwise black and white disposition.
Can you offer up any suggestions to beef up my fiction reading list?
