Lately I have been able to read a couple of books I thought I would share with you. These books include: Whatever happened to Penny Candy and Lone Survivor.
The first one, Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, is a quick read. The main topic throughout the book is the value of money and the effects of inflation. This book is written for middle and high school students so it is easy to understand. It really challenges the notion that inflation has more to do with the devaluing of our money instead of the more common notion of inflation being a rise in prices. The author argues that prices rise in relation to the value of money being devalued. If you really want to have your “eyes opened” and see the potential side effects of the massive spending we have going on in Washington right now you should read this book.
The second book I just finished is Lone Survivor. This book will really help you to understand the sacrifice of those serving in the military. This book is about 4 Navy Seals who get ambushed in Afghanistan by the Taliban along the Pakistan border. There is definitely good and evil in the world and the author has no qualms with saying it. He has stared evil in the eyes and lost four of his fellow Navy Seals because of it. This book will inspire you to thank those you know who serve in the military and it will help you to realize the freedom we share.
