I realize that it has been awhile since I’ve shared what I’ve been reading. It’s certainly not for lack of reading. I’ve been reading a ton of free and discount titles on the Kindle I got for my birthday. I picked up Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog! for less than a buck a few weeks ago, and it has been inspirational to me as I make plans to get things done this year.
I’ve also enjoyed several books on home organization, and I’m making my way through Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership (an actual hardcover book I received as a gift). With all of these excellent books, and the great reads I’ve stumbled across on the web, I’m a bit overloaded on non-fiction. I think I need to pick up some fiction…. or watch a mindless comedy or something.
Anyway, here are some great articles I didn’t want you to miss:

Suze Orman unveiled a new pre-paid debit card last week, and I found the terms so blah, I didn’t even feel it was worth mentioning here. PT Money has an excellent post that discusses why this card is a lousy idea. Read What We Need from Suze Orman Instead of Another Celebrity-Endorsed Useless Prepaid Debt Card. I’m disappointed that Suze Orman would even develop a product like this. I’m even more disappointed in her response to her critics.
