New Years Resolution

It's a little late, but I've finally decided on a New Years resolution: I'm aiming to read 24 books this year, 2 a month, one fiction one non-fiction.

Given that I used to devour books this should be achievable, but that was before kids...

So, for January:

  • Credit Derivatives: A Primer on Credit Risk, by George Chacko et al

  • The Subtle Knife, by Philip Pulman
I have a decent handle on Credit Risk gained over the last few years working in investment banking but wanted to gain a deeper understanding, especially around the models used.

The Subtle Knife is the sequel to Northern Lights which I finished last year. I confess I wasn't as blown away as I thought I'd be given all the positive reviews I'd heard but have decided to give the series another chance in the hope that it improves. Here's hoping!
