    I haven't got a lot to put on my personal statement and have read some Economics books (Freakonomics 1 and 2 the Undercover Economist) as am doing a combined degree but I haven't shown any interest whatsoever in Geography outside of school. Does anyone have any recommendations about what books to read that might be helpful and not too boring or anything else to do to show "interest in the subject"?

    Geography: The Essential Traveler's Introduction
    Can't find it anywhere (by which I mean I typed it into Google) so are you sure that is the actual name?
    Also is it actually an interesting book or just a good one to say?

    Yeah it does actually, thanks.
    Apparently now I don't even bother googling things, I just ask TSR. I probably could have looked it up myself but the thought never crossed my mind.
