What I’m Reading – Winter Chill Edition


It’s Valentine’s Day this weekend and it’s really cold out.  For the next week we are supposed to be in the “deep freeze” so to speak.  Our friends in the Boston area are supposed to get slammed with even more snow.  We will be spending Valentine’s Day inside, I’m making shrimp scampi for dinner and I made sure that we had appropriate sweets and some bubbly to celebrate as well.

Here are a few financial articles I suggest for some good financial reading this weekend:
