The Simple Dollar is a well-written personal finance web site by Trent Hamm, and today the Kindle edition of his book,The Simple Dollar: How One Man Wiped Out His Debts and Achieved the Life of His Dreams,is available for free. You don’t have to have a Kindle to read it – just use one of the free Kindle apps– they’re available for PC, Mac, iPhone, Blackberry, Android and iPad. I found it surprisingly easy to read a novel on my Droid, so I’m definitely getting The Simple Dollar while it’s free.
