Hey, don't let the reading list overwhelm you. Just start on it one book at a time. It really is necessary.

I would suggest that you visit the library first. Talk to the librarian and ask what investing resources they have and if Value Line is available.

Value Line is about the best of the different investment advisory services you can find, and if you're library has it you can read it free.

You may also find the following websites useful.

Better Investing is the website of the NAIC and aaii is the website of the American Assoc. of Individual Investors. Both are nonprofit organizations that teach lay(wo)men how to invest without getting ripped off. is the place to go to check out brokers and for ripoffs from cold call offers etc.
