For those of you who might be visiting The Simple Dollar via the … suboptimal web browser on their Amazon Kindle (or otherwise own one), The Simple Dollar is now available in periodical form on the Kindle, meaning you can download it and read it like any other book or magazine on the device.
The Simple Dollar Kindle Edition is available through the Kindle Bookstore – just search “simple dollar.” It costs $0.99 a month for automatic delivery, but you can try it out first with a 14 day free trial to see if it’s worth the $0.99 to you as compared to just using the Kindle’s built-in browser or reading The Simple Dollar elsewhere.
This is just another step in making The Simple Dollar as widely available and convenient for people to read as possible. In the near future, I hope to get a true mobile version of The Simple Dollar available for people who browse on their mobile phones and devices.

Did Powerball Tickets Beat the S&P 500 Last Year? A friend of mine argued to me recently that he would have been better off putting his 2008 retirement savings into lottery tickets than into the stock market. Obviously, this isn’t true, but the numbers are interesting. (@ mighty bargain hunter)
