Money Books Tip
If you like reading about ways to make
money, you might like my own book on the subject. The "weird"
in the title is more to attract attention (although some of the
101 ways are a bit strange, to say the least), but these are
all jobs and businesses that people are really using to make
money. You can learn more here:
Weird Ways to Make Money
Learn to love good books. There are treasures in books
that all the money in the world cannot buy, but the poorest laborer
can have for nothing. - Robert Ingersoll
Here's a money-saving routine for reading and collecting some
of the best books on financial topics. As you run across recommendations
and discover reviews of good books, make a list of the titles
and authors. Then make an occasional trip to your local library
to see if they have any of the title on the list. Read those,
and buy them only if they are the kind of works that make a good
ongoing reference. For the others on the list, go to Amazon.com
and buy a used copy -- it's the information and ideas that are
valuable after all, not the paper.
