New to books
« on: August 24, 2015, 10:00:35 AM »
As someone who is new to reading, what is a good lifestyle/finance book to start with? I was going to borrow Guide to a Goid Life from my local library, but it is checked out already until mid next month. Since i have finished reading all the posts on this blog, from the beginning to the end, I figured i should keep my reading going with something else. Any good suggestions?

I think you mean "New to Personal Finance Books". If that is correct, please consider editing your original post so you 'll get better feedback. And if that's not what you mean, sorry.

There's another thread that covers this topic here somewhere. (Forum help, please.) If you want a quick fix, I'd head over to http://jlcollinsnh.com/about/ for even more helpful content.

(And yes, if anyone's keeping track, that's the third time this morning I've recommended this site. Mr. Collins rocks!)

Interestingly enough we have a whole section of the forum dedicated to what people read. http://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/mustachian-book-club/

And there's Pete's Book List found on the MMM blog - of which "Your Money Or Your Life" is the one *I* generally recommend for new mustachians. ;-)  (Welcome!)

Don't get me wrong, I loved, loved, loved the book and have read it more than once, but I learned next to nothing about how to invest the money I'd managed to save. True, it does cover lifestyle, but if OP has read all of Pete's posts, and wants to learn more about finance, this is the very best next step, IMHO: http://jlcollinsnh.com/stock-series/ <- This is a different link than the one I posted earlier, but any way you get there is a good way.

No, i mean i'm new to books... I haven't read a book since high school. :/ Although I am looking to get restarted with finance/well living books to continue my education on these topics.

Thanks for clarifying, Tony. There's no shortage of suggestions on the forum. Here you go...

This is pretty overwhelming for a new book reader. I'd head for JL Collins' website and then to the library.
