Christmas readings

Feliz Navidad! Listed below are some of the works that I am reading this holiday season, in alphabetical order by title:

1. A book I bought at “Books & Books” in Key West, Florida: Adios Hemingway by Leonardo Padura Fuentes (Canongate 2005).

2. A used book I found at a “little free library” at the old Gato Cigar Factory in Key West: Closely Watched Trains by Bohumil Hrabal (Penguin 1981) [1968]. (Both the book cover and the old cigar factory are pictured below.)

3. A new book about an unusual murder case that I have been following since 2014: Extreme Punishment: The Chilling True Story of Acclaimed Law Professor Dan Markel’s Murder by Steven B. Epstein (Black Lyon 2022).

4. Research for my family vacation in the Florida Keys: the second edition of Hemingway’s Key West by Stuart B. McIver (Pineapple Press 2012).

5. My “beach reading”: a history of the South Sea bubble of 1720 with the annoyingly long and misleading title of Money for Nothing: The Scientists, Fraudsters, and Corrupt Politicians Who Reinvented Money, Panicked a Nation, and Made the World Rich by Thomas Levenson (Random House 2020).

6. And last but not least (for now): Space Invaders: Property Rights on the Moon by Rebecca Lowe (Adam Smith Institute 2022).
