I was entertained by the meme that spread through the economics blogosphere a few weeks ago, in which the bloggers listed the books that influenced them the most. The main take away for me is that when it comes to reading, I swim at the shallow end of the pool. Most of the books on their lists that I have read I have forgotten almost entirely. Maybe reading blogs by people who read and really thought about these great books will make me a little smarter. Anyway, Adam Bramwell goes through the various lists and chooses winners. Entertaining.
