A nice short post today.
I finished Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits by Philip Fraser earlier than expected. (Thanks Audible!) However, I’m not sure how much I retained. My kids have amazing mom-is-busy-radar. “Look, mom is reading. Now is the time to ask her for x, y, z…”
If I sneak off to my bedroom. The door is closed and locked. The kids are at the door. “Mom, the door is locked. Can you get my x, y, z…”
Me, “Go ask your father. He said he would watch you while I read.”
Kids, “He’s already asleep on the couch.”
Husband, “I’m awake. They just don’t come ask me.” (Insert laughing face emoji here…)
The only difficulty I had with Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits was it’s broadness. For some reason my brain was expecting something more practical. However, it still contained good insight for those whom I would consider ‘private investors’, i.e. not me or not me yet.
This month I’m going to reread Stephen Jarislowsky’s Investment Zoo. I inherited it from my dad’s collection of investment books. It’s a short read, so I’m hoping I can squeeze in a second short investment book this month if I’m lucky.
Wish me luck. I might just have to escape to my mini-van to read.
