We will read this summer

To supplement the dearth of news in the summer months we’ve decided to take up the hobby often referred to as reading. We will intermittently post on our progression through ‘the list’ (see below), as some texts will inevitably (at least we hope) pique our interest enough to do so. Without further ado, the first iteration of the list (and since almost no venture worth a dime succeeded as originally planned, we’re accepting suggestions for additions/deletions):  

The Gambler, Fyodor Dostoevsky
Swann’s Way: In Search of Lost Time, Volume I, Marcel Proust
The Povery of Historicism, Karl Popper
The Virtue of Selfishness, Ayn Rand
Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand
Stumbling on Happiness, Daniel Gilbert
The Black Swan, Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Discover Your Inner Economist: Use Incentives to Fall in Love, Survive Your Next Meeting, and Motivate Your Dentist, Tyler Cowen
Greek Fire, Nicholas Gage
Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know?, Philip Tetlock
