I read Tyler Cowens Marginal Revolution blog and he linked to your post about him. I looked at and liked your reading list, so here are some books I enjoyed. I’m going to suggest 3 books. 2 non-fiction and 1 fiction. The non-fiction books are by David Halberstam and are about the Vietnam War: “The Making of a Quagmire” and “The Best and the Brightest”. The fiction book is by Fredrik Backman, “A Man Called Ove”.
