Many people are struggling financially, and it is possible that you’ve recently experience a few money issues that make it hard to even afford to go to the bookstore. While buying books should never feel like a luxury spend, it is also easy to feel guilty about a purchase when you know that you should be saving. Fortunately, you can look at your next purchase as an investment by checking out these four options that improve your understanding of good money management.

“The Wealthy Gardener” by John Soforic

If the thought of reading a dry textbook-style chapter on finances makes you squeamish, then this book might help to break you in to the subject. Soforic has written a unique finance book that describes how he became financially independent by the age of 50. He includes lessons that are written in a parable style that is very much like how a parent would talk to their child about money.

“Your Credit Score: How to Improve the 3-Digit Number That Shapes Your Financial Future” by Liz Weston

This book helps to break down the basics of what goes into your credit score. Not only does it show you how the financial decisions that you make affects your score, but it also shows you ways to improve it that you might not have thought about before. For instance, online loans make it possible for you to demonstrate your financial responsibility to future lenders. By making regular payments on these loans you can make your credit score go up. This book is full of helpful tips that can help you get an online installment loan with bad credit.

“The Total Money Makeover” by Dave Ramsey

This well-known financial guru has written yet another book that helps you get your finances back on track. It provides a step-by-step outline on the best ways to get a handle on your budget. From showing you where you need to focus on investing your money to simplifying things such as retirement planning, you’ll find a wealth of information that helps you begin to improve your personal finances. Keep in mind that this book also builds upon some of the concepts that he’s included in his other books. While you can read this as a standalone book, it also helps to put the information that he has shared over the years together.

“Why Didn’t They Teach Me This in School” by Cary Siegel

If you are one of those people that has been making financial blunders since high school, then this book is going to help you begin to learn some basic skills that everyone should be taught. Sadly, the education system does not always focus on financial lessons enough, but Siegel is right there to help clear things up. There are 99 lessons packed into this book, and each one helps you begin to build for a stronger financial future.

You can turn your leisure time into more than just a guilty pleasure. By focusing on reading up on personal finance strategies, you can begin the process of finally feeling as though you have the financial freedom to truly enjoy your favorite hobbies.
