Friends newsletter: Warren Buffett
By Nick Gray • Issue #29 • View online
I read through the past 10 years of Berkshire Hathaway annual reports. Each year the annual report mentions a few books worth reading.
While a summer reading list or a “best books of the year” list is nothing new, a book recommendation means something entirely different when it comes from Warren Buffett.
Why you’re getting this: This is my Friends Newsletter. I send it to people I’ve met recently, my contacts on LinkedIn, and friends I want to keep in touch with. Feel free to unsubscribe and I won’t be offended.

I read through 10 years of annual reports from Berkshire Hathaway to get this information.
Both Warren Buffett and his business partner Charlie Munger often talk about how much they read.
Munger is famously quoted as saying:
“In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject matter area) who didn’t read all the time – none, zero.”
Good tea: Rishi Matcha Super Green
The Rishi brand of loose leaf teas is legit af.

This is my favorite green tea that is easily available on Amazon and sometimes in Whole Foods. It is loose leaf, so you need your own tea pot. I heard about this tea from my friend Tynan
Extremely high-quality green tea leaves mixed with matcha. Cold brews surprisingly well overnight, too! Then I re-steep it 1 or 2 times, adding a little matcha powder to each re-steep.
Product I like: Razor Scooter
Yes. I have this scooter. And I like it.

Yes, I’m a nerd and yes, I’m a 35-year-old “adult,” but dammit this stupid thing is often faster than Citibike. I can easily carry it on the subway or stash it in the coat check.

Bathroom gadget to catch hair in the shower. I live in a very old 1850s townhouse in Manhattan and we have to be careful about the pipes. This goes inside your shower drain, instead of just sitting on top. Works as advertised.
