Two New Books

Added two new books to my shelves this week:

Pay It Down! by Jean Chatzky
The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, and Broke, by Suze Orman

After my reading/reviewing of Chatzky's previous book, You Don't Have to Be Rich, I'm coming to this one with pretty low expectations. So far, though, I'm 80 pages in, and it has been better than I expected. More concise and process-oriented than most.

I've only glanced through YF&B. I'll say this: It has ... color.

Thanks to a mention by JLP at All Things Financial, I now really want to get my hands on Freakonomics also. Hadn't heard of it until I read that blog entry, and now I really really really want it.

Have you started freakonomics yet? (Since this post) I am dying to read it since hearing about it a few weeks ago while on vacation. I did find the blog a few days ago...I enjoyed it immensely

Time to get that book in my library queue!

My financial life began turning around when I took responsibility for it.
