Holiday Book List 2008

The upcoming holiday season is always a good time to reflect on the things we often take for granted - family, friends and good health. It is also a time to relax and start thinking about your New Year's Resolution(s). For some, this may include enhancing or learning a new skill. Reading a good book could be the easiest way to get started. If finance is on your agenda... here are a few books to get you started.

So, whether you are in the giving or receiving mode this holiday season, here are a few books to consider (some old, some new). Remember, if the book is for personal use, you may want to check your local library first. If gift giving is the objective, there are many choices to consider. In no particular order, here are a few of my favorites:


  • "Who Moved My Cheese" by Spencer Johnson
