Possibly THE worst top ten book list I have ever seen. Probably.

I just clicked on an article on the Guardian website titled: ‘The 10 best credit crunch books’ and expected to find an interesting top ten list of chirpy-cheap paperbacks that stayed well clear of greed, money or power: a get-away-from-it-all trashy novel to uplift the spirits of those looking to clear their mind of trouble and immerse themselves in a pointless but nonetheless enjoyable paperback.

Instead I come across the sub-title: ‘From fly-on-the-wall accounts of the crash to post-meltdown analysis’.

Who cares.

If you do happen to be looking for a book in which to dwell on the state of the economy, you can find it here.

(In saying this, there are a couple of interesting looking reads on this list, namely Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth by the brilliant Margaret Atwood, and The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope, the token classic I assume).

  1. This is probably not the worst Top 10 list ever, but it is the worst top 10 list I’ve seen in The Guardian. The Guardian has these literary Top 10s every week, and they are usually very good.
