Schiff provides an insightful view of his thoughts about our economy’s direction and provides valuable information for protecting your finances. Although this book was published in Febrary of 2007, he predicted the economic downturn and rising gold prices. It is real life information for real life situations and very applicable to this moment. A good book.

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga

This book, for young adults, has convinced me that I should expand my reading beyond the adult section of the library. It is a great book and left me wanting more from this author.

Fanboy feels he is the high school loser. He has only one good friend and could be labeled a victim in his high school. Goth Girl is the newcomer with an all black wardrobe and issues of her own. They form a bond that enables Fanboy to challenge the bullies and face his challenges, but Goth Girl has troubles of her own.

I did not want this book to end.
