  1. I am eager to see what you think of The Bright Continent. As you know, I thought it was great, but I am a bit doubtful about some of her points. I have no background in development–other than a recent focus on global literature. I am impressed with the books you have been reading–most of them ones I know about secondhand. I would certainly like to be part of your reading group.


    1. Thanks! I’m about a third of the way through and I do like it so far because I normally don’t hear stories about how people are finding ways to survive/thrive abroad ( I live in the US). I like the new angle of talking about people in developing countries but it does seem to glorify some of the informal networks a little too much. I still have far to go so we’ll see. Thanks for commenting.


  2. I’m starting from the beginning and will catch up hopefully in the next month or two. Great book list! I’ll try to comment as I go along to add to the good stuff you’ve got going here. Thanks!

  3. To be clear – I’m reading all of the books from the beginning of your book list, starting with The End of Poverty. About a third of the way done with that one. Sorry if that wasn’t clear.

    Also, another good book is “The Mystery of Capital”, by Hernando de Sota.
