Last Purchase of a Book: 2/4
Number of books in to-be-read pile: 22
That's 66 days and counting, folks! My reading interests are getting increasingly obscure, but so far the trusty Chicago Public Library is holding up pretty well. I did search for something the other day that was available in exactly one library in the world, the public library in Wetherby, Yorkshire, the town in which one of my relatives once performed in drag as Cinderella's ugly stepsister during a Christmas panto. He was horrifying. I would link to a picture, but I don't think he'd appreciate having that posted online.
Some great posts that caught my eye lately:
Kacie lays out her debt in Monopoly money. I love it! Here's to freedom from debt in 2009 for her and her family.
Budgeting Babe (a fellow Chicagoan) talks about finding work after college--she's run into some of the same generational issues I have.
Can I Get Rich on a Salary shares nine ways of getting rich. Very interesting stuff--there's a part 2 coming soon!
