The Get Rich Book Club

I’ve tried organizing book clubs before and each time I have failed miserably. But I just keep trying.

This time, I’m going to start up a book club that focuses on smart investing.

Investing is one of those things that I think I could do well if I knew more about it, so why not learn? If you’re interested and think you’d be able to take an active roll in reading and sharing thoughts, leave your name in the comments. I’ll be starting up a mass e-mail list with names and goals and we can use our combined brain and will power to explore the world of investments.

    wow, great list. We’ll definitely include these

    As competition, I will be starting a “… Or Die Trying Book Club.” We mainly sell read books about extremely dangerous business ventures: Tiger capturers, crab fishermen, Iraq rebuilding contractors, sword jugglers… you get the idea.

    We meet every third Wednesday. The hard part is keeping the numbers up.

    Another good read is “How to spend money blindling fast” by Tim Baird

    A second tasty treat is “Credit Cards: Spending someone else’s money” by Tim Baird.

    Nice! This is good timing for me; I just bought a couple of investing books for myself because I wanted to learn more about it.

    Also, book clubs are an enigma to me. The idea of it is very interesting and fascinating to me, yet everyone I have tried to get involved in has dissolved somehow.

    Crab fishing? Are they really that big?

    Does 50 Cent come to your meetings?

    Have you not seen “Deadliest Catch” on the Discovery Channel? It’s so dangerous they made a documentary-style reality show about it.

    I’m interested, although I don’t like the idea of a listserv – does anyone with computer skillz want to set up a bulliten board instead? OR maybe just make it a subdivision of and we can update in the comments section? I just hate getting deluged with emails.

    I am currently reading “9 steps to financial success” by suze orman, since the book “The courage to be rich” was already checked out.
