This morning on Inman was a book review Robert Bruss about a new book called "Untapped Riches" by Susan and Anthony Cutaia, which promotes the use of interest only and negative amortization loans (along with some savings strategies) to pave the road to riches. No matter how you feel about such "exotic loans," it sounds like an intriguing book and I know I will go out and buy it. And I know I will have something to say about it at some point. So, that got me to thinking...
Lots of us read lots of books on real estate, business, self-motivation, etc. Wouldn't it be great to go to one blog group and find that people like us (both real estate professionals and the public at large) have made comments and/or reviewed the books that affect our lives and business?
I am starting a blog group called "Book Thoughts." Maybe you'd like to go the extra mile and leave a full review of a book you just read or maybe you just have a couple of thoughts that you'd like to bounce of other thinking folks.
I know, for me, there are often concepts or ideas that I run across which are pretty interesting. And I am not aware of any forums as robust as ActiveRain on which to share or discuss these concepts or ideas.
I propose that if you read something worth commenting on in a book or other source, you go to the "Book Thoughts" group and type in your thoughts. Put the Name of the Book in the Title Line so that when people visit the group, they will know what book you are talking about by looking at the post titles. You can also include the topic of your post in parenthesis. So, a typical post would look like this: "Millionaire Real Estate Agent, Time Block For Focus".
Please join me, along with your colleagues and the public, in this project to create a blog group focusing on books.
