Books!

I love to read, and in the past couple of years I've stumbled across some really awesome books around money and mindset. I just started a new one called Money: A Love Story that is fabulous. I'm loving the fact that it discusses the need for both the actual money work, as well as the work around how you approach money, really, your relationship with money.
Anybody else have any good books? Anybody want to read this one together? I just started and got through Chapter 1 last night. I found it at my library, which was exciting!

  • I'm planning on reading "The Unbanking of America: How the New Middle Class Survives", by Lisa Servon. I'm very fortunate that I have the funds and credit rating to set up as many checking and savings accounts (and credit cards) as I need.  It's a real privilege and makes my life and my travel much easier. Not everyone has this opportunity, and I'm very curious about how people without traditional bank accounts manage, and how this situation could be altered to make it more fair for everyone.  Waiting for it at my library.

  • Dollars and Sense:  How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter, by Dr. Dan Ariely and Jeff Kreisler.   It's about behavioral economics... really interesting about how we think about money and how we trick ourselves in how and why we spend.  It's also really funny.  I listened to it on audiobook from my library.

  • Currently reading Jessie's book. But a book that I have read a couple of times, don't laugh. Personal Finance for Dummies by Eric Tyson. Really explains in plain language how things work.

  • Has anybody read You Are A Badass At Making Money? It's the second book by Jen Senciro (not sure if I spelled that correctly), and I loved the first one (You Are A Badass)

  • Will do my best to check out these books. 馃槈  Wish I had more spare time 

    For now, I only occasionally read some articles on Nerdwallet and other related resources.

    • Sharan Nieves I had the same struggle for a long time. And then someone suggested that I just start reading a few pages every night. Keep the book next to my bed and just before I go to sleep just read one or two pages. At least that way you're getting something in, even if it isn't a huge amount.
      I've learned that if I break it down to even that small of a bit that somehow I can manage to find more time to actually do it. We can tell ourselves a lot of stories about how we can't do things, but it only serves to keep us stuck in the same place we are, doing the same things we've always done. If we never try something different we'll always get the same results!

  • The other one that I just thought should probably go on the list is The Big Leap. It's not technically a finance book, but it directly connects mindset and finances together. It was a quick read, and had a lot of awesome info in it!

  • I am reading Jesse's book (about done) and then will read "How to Retire with Enough Money" after that it will be the classic "A Random Walk Down Wallstreet" --  I am focused on retirement and investing strategies.

  • The Simple Path to  Wealth by J.L. Collins was basically my next step from saving more than I spend to figuring out what to do with my savings. There's a lot of great stuff in there about mindset as well ("How to Think About Money" is a phenomenal chapter.) A lot of the content is also available over at jlcollinsnh.com .
