Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

I want to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. I am averaging one market related post a week since I moved to this new site, and I hope to keep that up in 2017.

The original entry contained a little Christmas story, but I reckon that I should keep my fiction and market commentary a little more separate than just putting it all up here above the fold. To make amends, I have created a new blog here where I will put up my non-market related content in the future. If you only come here for the occasional musing on the market, rest assured that this is what you'll get, and only that. I might still nudge you across from here once in a while, but I won't inundate you RSS readers with long tales of fiction. the original story which was posted here has been moved to the new blog. Josh is in a spot of bother. He is hungover, he has a lot of work to do, and someone just handed him an encrypted message.

My 2016 reading list - I dare you not to find something you like

These exercises inevitably turn into a "look how smart I am" post, but I love when others do them. My friend Jonathan Tepper usually does one every year, and I always find something interesting on it. Tyler Cowen's 2016 non-fiction list is here, and is full of gems. The FT editors’ recently gave their suggestions too, Shane Parris has chimed in, and Toby has listed the favourites of FinTwitter where my suggestions, inexplicably, have been left out. No matter, however, because I have listed them all below. 

Some of the titles invariably are from 2015, but I thought I that I would include them anyway. In addition, I should note that over half of them have been consumed via Audible. If you don't already have a subscription, go get one. I have separated fiction and non-fiction. I dare you not to find one or two that would be worth your time.
