Book Haul: Ghosts, Finance, and the Art of War

I stopped by my neighborhood secondhand book shop to see if I could find something interesting to read. All of the books I have right now have already been read or I was just not in the mood for. At first it took me a while to find anything of interest, but I kept browsing mainly as an excuse to stay warm from the wind and the rain outside. Unexpectedly, I came across a tattered, bright blue book in the clearance section of the collectibles. The title on the front had long been worn off, but I could still make out “Haunted Homes and Family Legends” in the top left hand corner. The spine gleamed with those same word in gold lettering. The publication date on the first page of the book read April 3, 1911. That pretty much sealed the deal for me. A beautiful book dating from the early 20th century full of scary stories and it’s only $10? I’ll take it.

After that, I found a couple of finance books that I had been looking to read, “Why ‘A’ Students Work for ‘C’ Students” by Robert T. Kiyosaki and “The Millionaire Mind” by Thomas J. Stanley. In the same finance section I discovered an interesting take on Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” — “The Art of War for Women” by Chin-Ning Chu.

I can’t wait to dive into these reads and share my thoughts with you.
