Unpleasant (and seasonally inappropriate) weather encourages reading ...

... as does the knowledge that a stretch of relatively frenetic activity lies ahead (Tribeca Film Festival, a local play, Tax Policy Colloquium, local conferences, writing efforts, other social plans).

The books I've been reading this weekend are Branko Milanovic's Global Inequality (an important and multi-dimensional work), Ron Darling's Game 7, 1986: Failure and Triumph in the Biggest Game of My Life (interesting introspection plus a trip for me down Memory Lane), and Frank Norris's McTeague (called an American Zola, dumb hulk of a lead character adds interest in some ways).
