Biff Boff Bam Sock #5 Personal Finance, A Not Boring and Very Important Introduction by Anna Jo Beck $3.00 - Anna Jo Beck took her fiscal foibles head-on to become a responsible earner, investor and saver of moolah.  She's documented what she's learned in the fifth issue of her zine, Biff Boff Bam Sock!  It's certainly not a catch-all for how to make and keep the Benjamins, but it's a good place to start, and Anna Jo gives you resources to investigate once you've injested this gem. Hey, how do I calculate the melt-down value of all my pre-1982 pennies? -NB
