Want to read more books and grow your personal finance knowledge in 2021? We are launching a virtual book club next month!

Please join TPH senior writer Nicole Dow (@Nicole D.) as we dig into different money-focused books and discuss them here in Community. Our first book pick is Napkin Finance by Tina Hay. Napkin Finance is chock-full of clever infographics designed to explain complex money topics in an easily digestible way.

Starting in mid-January, Nicole will be popping into this forum to post weekly discussion threads centered around material in the book. The first few chapters cover money basics, building credit and investing.

We encourage you all to grab a copy of Napkin Finance and take part in the conversation — but you’ll also be able to take part in the discussion even if you haven’t had a chance to get your hands on the book.

Happy New Year and happy reading, Penny Hoarders!  See you here again soon!

looking forward to being a part of this love learning here on the Penny Hoarder

This is great. I always have a hard time picking books on anything, yet I love reading! So, at least I will be able to make more informed decisions on finance books. I have no family now that my mom passed away a few months ago, so now I’m going to have to go from “very knowledgeable about finances” to “expert in all financial matters.” I lost my parents way too early for them & for myself. It’s rough knowing I won’t have them there when I get married, if I have a child, & just to talk to. My parents have always been my best friends. They were the only ones who I could always count on. You think friends, loves, other family, etc. will be there to (especially since you’ve always been there for them!) but it’s not always the case whatsoever. Only my parents had my back. Sorry guys, for those who understand, a few months feels just like yesterday when you lose a parent. I need to get a new psychiatrist & a therapist for grief now. I’ll just add it to the list of my issues. Lol.

Anyway, nice to meet u all. I’ll be talking to u later. Stay safe, everyone ✌🏼

@Nihility, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. My dad died suddenly (and way too prematurely) two months ago so I understand what you mean about it feeling like it was just yesterday.

It's especially tough when you used to turn to a parent for financial advice, guidance or help and now you're doing it all on your own. I'm hoping reading more personal finance books this year will increase our financial knowledge so we make better money decisions.

I'm wishing you strength through your grieving, and I look forward to hearing from you in our virtual book club discussions!
