  7. A Random Walk Down Wall Street is my favourite personal finance book. I am going to read The Richest Man in Babylon over the holidays. I recently posted some of my favourite investing / personal finance books.

    I have too many favourites in other subjects: I like the Harry Potter series, The Lord of the Rings and I picked up the complete works of Shakespeare just the other day. I also like anything by P. G. Wodehouse (If I have to pick one it would be Full Moon).

    PF: Guide to Economic Indicators: Making Sense of Economics by the folks who bring you the Economist magazine

    Fiction: Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson

    I’m also a fan of Mental Floss magazine.
