Default Suggest books to read

If you like economics, then you should read Adam Smith's "The wealth of Nations" and John Maynard Keynes "The general theory of employment interst and money". I have read them both (JMK will have one chapter left). They are very important books in economics.

Here's a couple of modern books that I enjoyed:
- Freakanomics
- The big Short.

What do you guys suggest?

I enjoyed 'World on Fire' by Amy Chua, which is about how free markets create market dominant minorities, such as the Chinese in Thailand.

I also enjoyed a book by Joseph Stiglitz, but I can't remember the title.

Is this thread only about economics books?
