Which topics do you enjoy reading about and discussing the most?

I have no favorite topics. I enjoy books that are well written, introduce me to subjects I know nothing about, force me to think about things in a different way and present more questions than answers.

What are some of your favorite books (or authors)?

Again, I am not a fan of favorites. Most of the reading I have done has been fiction in foreign languages.

Name 2 or 3 non-fiction books you would like to discuss with the group.

A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century; Economics as Religion: From Samuelson to Chicago and Beyond; A History of God: The 4,000 Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam

Why would you like to join this particular group?

The books and discussion seem very interesting. Past book clubs I have belonged to read mostly popular fiction which I didn't usually enjoy. On rare occasions when a book I thought was interesting came up, most members of the club didn't read it.

Introduction

I live in Fox Point. Prior to moving to Wisconsin I lived in Europe for 14 years. My background is in economics and I have worked in both the public and private sector.
