February Reads

So I spent last week in DC visiting family. It was a lot of fun. I didn't go on the internet. I learned how to play Spades, and became a dominating force in it. But that's another post.

World Wide Rave by David Scott

Debt-Free Forever by Gail Vaz-Oxlade
Seemingly the last book of my personal finance obsession. OR IS IT?

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain
One of the two big Iraq War books of last year. Really good.

A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
Another classic to check off the list, and a necessary precursor to reading...

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Very moving.

Among Prey by Alan Ryker

Fevered Hills by Keith Deininger
Great language.

Stalking You Now by Jeff Strand

Get Into Gold by Azizi Ali
Such an interesting book! Azizi Ali is the top Malaysian finance author. He has a super kooky style, and let me tell you, it has a different tone than other business/finance books, which tend to be very pro-US. This one isn't. Nope. Includes a very interesting history of gold.

The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers
The other Iraq War book. Very good, but overwritten and very first-booky. I do not believe that this uneducated mountain teen knows the word "caryatid."
