If you’re following me on facebook or twitter, then you’ve already had a head-start on everybody else on winning the January Book Giveaway.

If not, now’s probably a great time to subscribe to Capital Advisor on facebook or twitter. You’ll still have a bit of a head-start.

The response to the Savings and Investment Yearbook 2012 by Value Research book giveaway was awesome. A big thanks to everyone who participated. This is one away I can give back something to the wonderful Capital Advisor community. I seriously wish there could be more than one winner per giveaway…maybe somewhere down the road.

Coming back, the winner is T S Ashok.

Congratulations Ashok! I’m writing to you separately for your mailing address.

Stay tuned for the January book giveaway (hint: it’s a book on the capital markets).

What you see in the picture above is a partial view of the next Art of Finance sketch. To win a copy of the Savings and Investment Yearbook 2012 by Value Research all you need to do is guess the theme of the completed sketch. The closer your answer is to what’s depicted in the final sketch the better are your chances of winning.

I’ll announce the winner after I publish the completed sketch (a week from today).

Note: Simply saying “retirement” won’t do. You need to be more precise.

Drop a comment with your answer (and of course, I need an email address).

Announcing the Winner of the November Book Giveaway

Capital Advisor wouldn’t be anything without you wonderful readers. All of you and specially readers who take the time to leave a comment. Seriously. I now have so many topics to think hard and write about that I’m afraid whether I’ll be able to do justice to all of them. I promise to try my best.

And the winner (through a simple draw of lots) of the “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” book giveaway is Anil Kuppa. Congratulations Anil. I’ll write to you separately for your mailing address.

Stay tuned. There’s going to be another book giveaway in December.

Thanks everyone.

Here’s my second book giveaway. I’ve read the I Will Teach You To Be Rich book cover to cover (I read the excellent blog as well) and in my opinion the book is an excellent read especially for someone starting out with understanding and organizing their finances. The book obviously is geared for an American-audience but the key concepts themselves are location independent.

Here’s what you need to do to stand a chance to win this book: Simply leave a comment on this post explaining what kind of personal finance articles you’d like to see covered on Capital Advisor. Remember, the more detailed your comment the better your chances of winning.

I’ll draw lots in about a week’s time (I promise to stick to the committed deadline this time) and announce the winner here.

PS: The courier agency I used to send the ERE-book in the first giveaway seems to deliver things correctly. So I’ll stick with their services. Luckily, they’re right next to my office.

My apologies for the prolonged delay in announcing the winner of the ERE-book giveaway. Finally managed to draw lots and the winner is Ashutosh Tewari. Congratulations! There will be another book giveaway next month. Next up on the giveaway list is I Will Teach You To Be Rich.

Here’s the August, 2011 update:

Again, nothing out of the ordinary. I seem to have settled into a sweet spot between all my needs and wants.

I completed reading the ERE book as well. The first half is an excellent read; the second half seems to be a rush through, but pretty useful nonetheless. I’d now like to hand this knowledge source over through a book giveaway. Here’s how you can grab the ERE book. Simply leave a comment explaining why this book would be of great benefit to you today. I’ll draw lots and announce the winner mid-September.
