I haven't had the time to do any 'reading for pleasure' recently, and yet the amount of books in my possession keeps growing and growing...
So as I leave to vacation, I intend to take with me the following:
.Statistics and Econometrics: methods and applications, by Ashenfelter, Levine, Zimmerman.
My econ prof lent the book to me. Apparently the writers are really good and it'll be useful to me too.
.The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism by Max Weber.
I have studied of Max Weber, but now I want to read his own work first-hand! I got this particular edition recommended to me by someone who speaks German so this is supposed to be a very good translation too!
...And I know I'll get more books while vacationing because my uncle always pushes me to read his older books. Here's how he sells his books to me: Imagine me sitting and talking to my cousin or to my aunt when my uncle rushes to the room from the bathroom and he has the giddiest face in the world; he says, "you absolutely have to hear this"! So we shut up and listen as he reads an excerpt from the book he was reading and then follows up with his own commentary on the text.
All I can hear, I me mine
I me mine, I me mine
