Thanks for the reading advice and encouragement!

It is a very interesting hobby. My only problem is losing track of time while on the computer. One link leads me to another, and another, and aacckk - I'm late to pick up the kids from school.

Thanks again.

Also, I did find a few interesting items if anyone else is interested...

The Fool School's 13 steps to investing was interesting. Parts 8 and 9 are what I want to learn more on, reading financial statements and putting a value on a company. I'm planning on picking a company and trying to walk thru those calculations. They can be found at

I also found an exhaustive recommendation of books in an old Hidden Gems newsletter (December 2004). That is only accessible if you have the subscription. The two books recommended above are included (along with 23 others).
