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:

101 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 and buy a used copy -- it's the information and ideas that are valuable after all, not the paper.
