"Your Stimulus Package is Right Between Your Ears, Darlin'"

As I was getting into my car last night, Dave Ramsey was on the radio. (Love that guy!) Anyways, he was responding to something I had missed a few moments earlier with this: "Your stimulus package is right between your ears, darlin'." He then recommended reading some books (some of which you could easily read in one evening):

  • "Rich Man, Poor Man"- Irwin Shaw
  • "The Richest Man in Babylon"- George S. Clason
  • "Who Moved My Cheese?" - Spencer Johnson, MD
  • "The Good Book" (The Holy Bible)
  • (and some other titles I couldn't remember)

He talked about the importance of reading good books -- that's going to change things for you -- not sittin' around watchin' the television.

I wished I had heard the whole conversation, but I think I caught enough to understand the power of reading good books. I've already read a couple of his suggested titles and am going to go check out the others I've missed. Thanks for the reminder Dave!

I have been rereading my food storage books and novels that are about the strong spirit of people who overcame bigger obstacles in the Depression of the 1930's. I have actually gotten food storage ideas from reading some of the novels.:)

My boss from a former job read "Who moved my cheese?" to us during our staff meetings. I loved it so much, that I bought it and read it to my family during family councils! Great book!
