Real Estate/Business Book Club

38 Replies | Austin, Texas

Hey all,

Just curious to know if anyone would be open to a real estate/business/personal development book. I'm a fairly voracious reader (2-3 books month), but I'm always more engaged and accountable when I have to share the information with a group. I also recognize that a newbie, it's critical to absorb as much possible.

A few of the books I'm reading and have read include:

- Millionaire Real Estate Investor 

- The Book on Rental Property Investing & Landlording

- Black Swan 

- Out of State Real Estate Investing 

- Cashflow Quadrant

- Rich Dad/Poor Dad

- What every real estate investor needs to know about cash flow

In the next few months, I'm planning on reading:

- How I turned $5K into $5,000,000

- How to invest with low or no money down

- The advanced guide to real estate investing 

If a group is interested in getting together to exchange ideas based on reading and have meaningful, and hopefully actionable discussions, please let me know. I will coordinate. 

Thanks,

Chirag

there are lots of online book clubs around, the idea is great.

I do one with a facebook group through my website

getting people to actively participate and read books in tandem has proven to be difficult.

Would be interested to see what you produce!

Interesting idea. If you need book suggestions, here some - question is, where to find time for all?
