I usually only read novels.
A book that changed my life:
‘Your Money or Your Life.’
By Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin.
I almost didn’t read it. The first time I flipped through it (when I was a teenager), I was appalled.
I had just happened to stop flipping and my eyes landed on the line at the top of page 106, which read, “C. Nonprescription, ‘recreational’ drugs.”
The phrase was on a list as an example of expenses to keep track of, and I was going through a puritanical phase (which came right after my dress-like-a-slut phase), and thus, appalled.
Now, in my wiser adult years, I realize they were just keepin’ sh*t real.
