Books I want to read

Yesterday I was unwell and made good progress on Revolutionaries: Inventing An American Nation by Jack Rakove. Naturally, I’ll be trying to finish it on Tuesday

Meanwhile, the list of other books I want to read is growing. Here are some new additions.

There’s Double Entry: How the Merchants of Venice Created Modern Finance by Jane Gleeson-White, which featured recently on NPR’s Planet Money episode, The Accountant Who Changed The World.

Dieter Helm’s The Carbon Crunch: How We’re Getting Climate Change Wrong and How To Fix It.

Greekonomics: The Euro Crisis and Why Politicians Don’t Get It by Vicky Pryce – one of the speakers at the Festival of Economics in Bristol on 23-24 November - a few tickets left!

A footnote, though, for publishers. Please can you stop these awful patronising book subtitles? I’ve done them myself, mea culpa, but I’m fed up with them now.
