Free eBooks and Sites I like

Here is a collection of links to blogs and sites I like which are related to finance, self improvement and that sort of thing, free downloads such as eBooks and anything else I think is relevant.

Free eBooks
Napoleon Hill – Laws of Success. Written by the author of Think and Grow Rich, The Laws Of Success is an excellent book that will change the way you think.
What does it take to make One Million by John Assaraf, author of The Answer (this link is not a free download) and he was mentioned in “The Secret”. I much prefer The Answer to The Secret as it focuses more on actively doing things to achieve your goals rather than just ‘thinking’ them to be like in the secret. What Does It Take To Make One Million is a great read by a great author.
Build Wealth Like a Billionaire
Scathing Weekly has a list of 35 free eBooks

Sites I read – Finance/personal development
Bucksome Boomer
Cents to Save
Eventual Millionaire
The Simple Dollar
The Saved Quarter
Every Penny Earned
Early Retirement Extreme
Financial Planning Tips
Simple Savings (I mainly visit the paid forum here)
Professional Family Manager
Steve Pavlina is a personal development/motivation site.

  2. Stop doing this to me, or I'll never get to bed lol. I've just checked out your first link for the blog of 'Eventual Millionaire', and I've saved it to my favourites, I will have to start reading it at the beginning, it looks so good, once I've read it, I'll have to check out all the others you have mentioned.
    I borrowed 'The 21 Challenge' from the library today, I can't remember if you've mentioned this book or not, but it looks like a good read, I'm already pretty good at budgeting for my groceries, but who knows what else I may learn from it. Right back to reading . . .
