  1. Thanks for the mention Ram. It was great seeing you last night!

    • @Preet: Thanks for driving up all the way. It was great to catch up as well. Hopefully, we can meet again soon.

      @Michael: I’m going to donate the books I don’t want to keep to the library. These days I try and buy e-books. Much less clutter!

  2. I have a lot of books as well. What has helped me is using the library more. Saving money is just a side benefit. The main benefit is that the book goes back to the library instead of clogging up my house.

  3. Thanks for the mention and support of the blog CC! Greatly appreciated.

  4. Apparently I’m a “collector” of falling stocks… LOL!

  5. @Phil S: That’s a good one. Count me in as a collector of falling stocks too (okay bond ETFs excepted here). LOL!
