On this page, you will find various resources that have taught me a lot about personal finance and financial independence. These resources inspire me and help me achieve my goals in my everyday life.


Some of the books that I recommend here relate to personal finance in the broadest sense, as well as others relate directly to FI.

This list contains affiliate links. Of course, I strongly encourage you to get these books for free through your public library. However, if you really want to buy it, you can use my affiliate link and thus help this blog. 🙂
