What I Read: October 2020

Hello, everyone! I know this blog post is long overdue. I started drafting this back in October and got caught up with other stuff. However, here we are.

If you’re new around here – a personal challenge of mine since January of 2019 has been to read at least one book per month. I share updates via these blog posts.

At the end of the year, I will share a list of every single book I read. Stay tuned for that in December :). You can also always go back to prior blog posts to check out what I’ve been reading.

October’s book was the following:

The Psychology of Money

Author: Morgan Housel

Wow. I will have to say this book is on the list of one of the best I’ve read this year so far. I think trying to explain it would not give this book justice. I learned so much about the history behind why most people act as they do with money.

I also learned a lot about how not to judge each individual’s decision regarding money management.

Often, the way we act with money and how we manage our finances have a lot to do with how we grew up, the money habits of the people around us, and systems that were put in place to trigger us to be consumers.

I know a lot of this sounds like “common sense,” but the book goes deep into these kinds of topics with excellent examples and details. You’ll have to check it out yourself to understand what I mean.

A couple of my favorite chapters:

And that’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
