This meme has financial relevance

"Gibble" as we like to call him, or GLBL Guy, or the friendly blogger at Gather Little By Little, has tagged me for a meme. Update: Looks like LJ tagged me, too!

Here are the rules:

  1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the next three sentences.
  5. Tag five people.

I had a stack of books about five feet away. The top three wouldn’t work. They just didn’t make a bit of sense (and didn’t exactly have sentences on page 123). But the fourth! The fourth will work for this.

I grabbed a book I have yet to read called Absolutely Amazing Ways to Save Money on Everything by James L. Paris. It’s on loan from the library.

Here’s the text I’m supposed to post:

"But we all must become investors regardless of how much we enjoy or dislike the process. Other than working at our regular daily jobs, there is really only one other viable way we have to secure our long-term financial goals and dreams: investing. And today working a regular job isn’t always enough to pay all of our living expenses and still have enough money left over to finance college educations, retirement, and a host of other goals long-term goals." (book’s typo; not my own)


This comes from Chapter 7: Investment strategies.

I’m not really sure what to think, based on that tiny excerpt. I’ll have to read the whole book (or at least give it a decent skimming) before I can really weigh in. What do you make of the little blurb? Anything? I’m concerned about the typo.

I’m tagging:

Crystal at Money Saving Mom, because I know she’s reading a ton of books for both of her blogs.

Trent at The Simple Dollar because reading is one of his favorite hobbies. Also, I’d love it if he saw this tag and paid me a visit. (Hey, it could happen :)

Chief Family Officer because I’m interested to find out what she’s reading.

Punny Money because whatever book is chosen, I’m sure it will make me LOL.

S.B. or her hubby at Be Thrifty Like Us because I bet whatever they choose will be interesting.

  1. Thanks for the tag! Just posted it.

Sorry, comments for this entry are closed at this time.

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.

Keep in Touch!
