Each month since October 2009, I’ve started or participated in a monthly poll on the USA Amazon Kindle discussion boards asking people a simple question: what are you reading on your Kindle? This will mark the second month I’m not going to do it there but will be having it hosted here on the blog’s website as, after all, we need each of your input here on the blog!
I’ve received some great tips with past monthly polls, finding out what others are reading on their Kindle, and found some “new” authors I generally wouldn’t have found using my hunt-and-peck method. While I have certainly enjoyed the “mainstream” author suggestions over the past year, I’ve also enjoyed a lot of independent authors from each month’s poll I never would have heard of previously.
If you are reading this on your Kindle – or anywhere other than the blog’s website – and would like to check out the poll and find some new things or, better yet, tell others what you are reading, just click here or type in http://wp.me/p2b82w-48u into your web browser, scroll down to the bottom of the post, and start typing away in the comments section!
Here’s how this works – list a book you are currently reading or just recently read on your Kindle, whether you would recommend it, did you get it free, and anything else you would care to share.
I’ll start off this month’s poll by saying I am currently reading The Money Code: Become a Millionaire With the Ancient Jewish Code by H.W. Charles. I picked this up when it was free a couple of weeks ago, and it is back to its regular price of $4.99. I’m 89% of the way through it right now and so far I think it is pretty good and is provoking a lot of thought – I’m going to get my 8th grader to read it as it offers some good money management tips as well as practical advice on working hard and smart. This is a fairly quick read, but there is a lot of food for thought that I am stopping and thinking about – I think if you read it fast you will miss a lot. And, in answer to some of your questions out there, this isn’t a religious book but shows you specific passages in religious texts on financial matters.
You’ll certainly get more than $4.99 worth of value out of this one no matter what your religious affiliation is!

Finally, here’s my standard continuation of each month’s request for prior participants in the poll: if you like or dislike a title you have read, in addition to telling us about it in this informal poll, how about writing a book review on the Amazon website? The review will certainly last and be visible a lot longer than this poll will. If you’re like me, you look at the customer reviews in order to see if you want to investigate a book further. Since we are all a little community here, and while I realize each review is each person’s opinion and we may not like the same thing, I know your friends and online discussion neighbors would appreciate your honest assessment of the likes and dislikes without providing a spoiler – I know I would! Your reviews don’t need to be a long dissertation of the book, I like to keep them short, sweet, and hopefully to the point (some people think I am too blunt on things I dislike, but I am at least giving you my honest opinion!); you can see all of the reviews I have written if you click here or type in http://smarturl.it/mgreviews – if you think any of them were helpful, I would appreciate a “Yes” vote just underneath the reviews on the Amazon website.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Have a great weekend!
