To Know Is To Read

The more that you read,the more things you will know.The more that you learn,the more places you'll go.~ Dr. Seuss ~

Mrs. Medicated and I laugh quite a bit when we sit back and remember the hours and hours we spent sitting in our medical school library, reading and studying. It was typical that we would spend 50-60 hours/week at the same desk, in the same chair, reading and studying. After graduating, our readings cut down, but we still spend a good amount of time reading articles and journals in our respected fields. The reason for this entire information overload: knowledge.

Since starting this blog, we have spent endless hours trying to learn the ins and outs of personal finance. Most of our knowledge has been gain through reading online articles and personal finance blogs. One source of knowledge that we have just tapped into is personal finance books. We decided to start a reading list of books that range in the personal finance world; from budgeting to investing to taxes.

We are planning on starting a little book review of these personal finance books to discuss what knowledge we have gained by reading the topics discussed and how it may affect our current situation. Our first book that we plan to review is: The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey.
