Weekly Giveaway: Moved By Faith & Laughing at Wall Street
This week’s giveaway:
Laughing at Wall Street: How I Beat the Pros at Investing (By Reading Tabloids, Shopping at the Mall, and Connecting on Facebook) and How You Can, Too
By Chris Camillo (St. Martin’s Press, 2011)
From the inside flap:
How did Facebook friends help a young parent invest in the wildly successful children’s show Chuggington and see her stock values climb 50 percent? How did an everyday trip to 7-Eleven alert a teenager to short Snapple stock–and triple his money in seven days? How could $1,000 invested consecutively in Uggs, True Religion jeans, and Crocs over five years grow to $750,000? How did Michelle Obama cause J. Crew’s stock to soar 186 percent?
In this entertaining, story-driven, and jargon-free book, Chris proves that you don’t need large sums of money, fancy market data, or endless hours to achieve extraordinary wealth. He shows how the average consumer with zero financial education can outsmart Wall Street’s brightest by learning to identify game-changing information hidden in everyday life while watching TV, reading tabloids, working at the office, shopping at the mall, eating out at restaurants, or driving the carpool to soccer practice. You just need to pay attention to the interests and trends in your own life. It doesn’t matter whether you have $100 or $100,000 to invest–you can become a successful investor and create a secure future for you and your family.
Moved by Faith: Stories from American Catholic Radio
By Judy Zarick (St. Anthony Messenger Press, 2012)
From the back cover:
These amazing stories from American Catholic Radio show how people “put shoes on the Gospel” and live out their faith in creative and powerful ways. You’ll find stories about the EMT worker who started the safe-haven program for abandoned infants, a homicide detective who ministers to the bereaved and imprisoned, and many more. Moved by Faith provides refreshing role models for contemporary Christian living and makes an excellent gift for anyone learning about the Catholic faith.
