Inspired by a conversation I had with Chris Mergerson, a friend and colleague at the LBJ school, I thought it would be interesting to follow the contents of my “energy and environment” bookshelf. I love reading. My bookshelf includes everything from science fiction and fantasy (if you haven’t read Enchantment, you should order it immediately!) to modern nonfiction. My collection at home is a eclectic mix of Robert A. Caro, Janet Evanovich, Jane Austen, and Cass Sunstein. Here is a list of the books that currently sit on my Energy & Environment shelf. If you have any recommendations for future readings, I’d love for you to send them along.
