So, a bit of an update for anyone who reads this.
I have finished two books;
1) The Little Book of Common Sense Investing (Bogle)
2) The Four Pillars of Investing (Bernstein)
I just wanted to say thanks (the thread that suggests these books and others are locked). I have thoroughly enjoyed them and I have three more I'm planning on reading. I've already read more of about investing motivation or economics. It's great to be learning in a new area. I have also enjoyed keeping up with the discussions here (and trying not to barge in).
Oh, and we've cashed on a CD to pay off the car. My 403(b) input is now 9%, I will continue to raise it 2% every six months; giving myself time to adjust to the changed income.
