I am in true amazement at the response this idea has received.
Thank you, sincerely, for taking the time to fill out the book selection survey. I value your input immensely. And, from the information gathered, I see that we’re a pretty united club, already.
1. Almost everyone is more interested in reading about financial independence than anything else.
2. Most of the responders believe they know their stuff when it comes to personal finance. (I tend to believe they know their stuff because they’re constantly reading and learning about it – and participating in book clubs, too.)
3. Monday evenings seem to be the favored time for discussion.
Without further ado, here’s what we’ll be reading this summer:
May – Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin & Joe Dominguez
June – Rich Habits by Tom Corley
July – Work Your Wealth: 9 Steps to Making Smarter Choices With Your Money by Mary Beth Storjohann
August – The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle
Here’s when we’ll be discussing each:
May – Monday, May 23rd at 7PM EST
June – Monday, June 20th at 7PM EST
July – Monday, July 18th at 7PM EST
August – Monday, August 22nd at 7PM EST
I’ll have a Twitter chatroom available to make it easier to track the hashtag. I’ll post those details the Monday of the chat.
I’ll have prepared questions for each chat. If you have questions or a topic from each selection that you’d like included, email me a few days prior. I’ll compile the list and offer each question/topic during the chat.
If it all goes well, we’ll start selecting our Fall books in late July/early August. Also, if you’re in the club and going to FinCon 2016, let me know. I’ll be sure to say more in the August chat, but my hope is to get us all together in person at FinCon for coffee or a meal.
Again, thank you for being a part of this. I’m truly looking forward to it, and to learning more about financial independence with you.
P.S. If you have any trouble – financial or otherwise – getting ahold of one of the selections, please let me know ASAP. We may have a way around that. Don’t let your finances be an obstacle to your participation.
