I have a lot of conversations with friends that go like this:
"What have you been reading lately?"
"This and That and The Other One..."
"Oh, I've been meaning to read This, and I just read That, but I haven't heard of The Other One"
"It's great/boring/so-so/amazing/read it ASAP so we can talk about it. What did you think of That?!" And we're off...

CNN Money notes that "financial education is still very much a 'learn it at home' activity," and asks, "Sex ed is required. Why isn't financial education?"

I've been visiting friends in two different cities since Tuesday, which has kept me pretty busy laughing, chatting, eating, and playing with one very cute baby. But we'll be back Monday with two new interviews- both with women in science!
