Im just starting out on 2 new ones:

Nick Davies - Flat Earth News
Misha Glenny - McMafia: Seriously Organised Crime

Both seem to have been well received. The reason I bought the Misha Glenny book was that the line that said "if you loved Freakonomics...". I loved that book, so here we go.


what are you reading?

Re-reading Catch 22 for the millionth time. It's so good, and so clever. I love it.

Also just finished re-reading a couple of Orwell books.
