Repeat after me: I am always improving, but today I have all the knowledge I need.
Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a big bargain hunter. My motto is why pay for it when I can get it for free? That’s why the library and I go hand in hand. Once I decided to get serious about paying off my student loan debt and self improvement I’ve been making weekly trips to the library to find books to pique my interest for a while. I go there so much that if I’m absent for a couple of days my local librarians check in on me to make sure I’m ok. And they are always ready with new suggestions, which makes my book hunting job even easier. Sometimes, their book advice is so spot on that taking out a library book is just not enough. I need to own it.
If you are on a budget like I am, trying to pay off debt, and enjoy life at the same time, you might be hesitant to purchase a book. After all, one dollar spent on a book is a dollar taken away from your debt payoff. However, think of these books as an investment in your future. Trust that I don’t take these suggestions lightly. The books on this list are so good that you’ll want to do more than just read them. You’ll want to highlight, dog ear, take notes and apply the tips to life –all things you can’t necessarily do when the book is borrowed from the library.
Here are five books I recommend you actually splurge on and not just borrow from the library.
