Money Mortgage Melancholy

With AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, WaMu, and possibly others, the mortgage crisis is still very much underway. The New York Times has an interactive graphic that really puts it into perspective for me: $1 trillion has been lost so far. So money and mortgages have been on my mind. Take a look at some of these books to find some money peace of mind:
Every time Suze Orman is on the tv, I stop and take a look. She always makes sense even if she can be a little rough on her guests. With her books I get comprehensive guides on money. This one includes information about mortgages.
With all of the homes foreclosing, it is interesting to look at a book about increasing the value of your home. I don't know if I have the time to take all of her suggestions, but still an interesting read.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Everyone asks for this book. To know it is to love it. Its a New York Times bestseller, spawned dozens of other books, and you can even buy the board game.
Along with Orman and Kiyosaki, Ramsey is one of those financial gurus that people hang on their every word. His bestselling book, Financial Peace, was updated a couple of years ago with more information on marriage, singles, kids and families. And now with Ramsey's show so popular, he's even made an online "university" (there is a free preview lesson). But why pay money to find out how to save money? Just read his and others books at the library!
