Weekend Reading – March 14, 2008

Before I start the link fest, I'd like to announce the winner of "Fast Profits in Hard Times". Out of the 103 comment entries (all of which made me hungry), Lyu was randomly chosen as the winner. Congrats! If you like these book giveaways, stay tuned, we'll be giving away another book next week. 

Onto some articles from around the blogosphere: 

  • MDJ had the honor of guest posting on Get Rich Slowly this week.  This time it was a post about how our net worth went from -$40,000 to $285,000  in 5 years.
  • Thicken My Wallet took the time to review the VISA IPO documentation and gives his summary and insights.
  • Canadian Capitalist evaluates various popular tax software packages and explains all the pros and cons of each.
  • Lazy Man and Money defines Alternative Income.  Basically what it means to him is that the position isn't paid hourly, salaried positions that don't require "face time", and it shouldn't be an exhaustible item. 
  • Canadian Dream explains that when he first graduated from university he was considered part of the working poor.  The highlight of the post was that he was perhaps the happiest during this time.
  • Digerati Life has an insightful article about serious savers who died very wealthy.  It just goes to show that frugality to some is a lifestyle and not a means to an end.
  • The Sun's Financial Diary writes about how your tap water may not be as clean as you think.  I wonder if this is true for our Canadian water sources.
  • Brip Blap explains why cash is king in his article "Gimme my Cash Blankee".

    FT, I was pretty excited to see your guest post on Get Rich Slowly. Great job, it’s just too bad a few readers decided to flame you.

    You know you’re successful when… ;)

    Keep up the good work!
