Recently, I had a conversation with someone that INSISTED people in my age bracket don’t read at all… and to be honest that pissed me the fuck off because everyone I know reads, all my friends have crazy conversations about books, and my own personal bookshelf is overflowing with books. Let’s not forget that KINDLES COUNT AS BOOKS TOO YOU GUYS, READING IS READING. Ok ok, rant over. I’ve always loved the idea of being in a book club, but in practice, it kind of gives me extreme anxiety. I’m a fast reader, and I annotate the shit out of all of my books, and apparently normal people don’t do that, so I’m seen as a weirdo…. whatever.
In terms of books that I’ve been wanting to read, Broke Millennial by Erin Lowry. This book is my first venture into caring about personal finance as a whole, and it’s truly eye-opening. Instead of shaming you for how you spend money, Broke Millennial aims to teach you and help you create better money habits… something that can be used by anyone, millennial or not. Getting your financial life together is really easier than it seems, it might be terrifying, but it’s not the worst thing ever. Since starting this book, I’ve taken a different approach to money, and even how I talk about money. I’m going to be gifting this book to all of my friends in the coming years, because you really need this book in your life.
Have you read Broke Millennial? What did you think of it?
