In a sea of never-ending forums, blog posts and digital content, there’s something refreshing about cracking the spine of a real, hold-in-your-hands book, especially when it comes to learning something new. Whether you’re headed back to school this season or are simply more forward-focused now that summer’s passed (tear), fall is a great time to brush up on skills—which includes all things Sugar. You’re invited to join the Sugar Baby Book Club!
Here’s a short stack of our favorite books as they relate to the Sugar Bowl, from executing on-point business acumen to the act (and art) of better etiquette. Feel free to share some of yours in the comments below!
Sex and The Single Girl, Helen Gurley Brown
Are you a Cosmo girl? You owe it to Helen Gurley Brown, the late and former editor of Cosmopolitan. This trailblazing woman helped to revive the once-ailing magazine in the 60s into the sass- and sex-filled glossy we know and love today.
Don’t be fooled by the title: Sex and The Single Girl isn’t just about sex, nor is it just for all the single ladies. Rather, think of this book as a perennial guide to enjoying life as a woman—with all of the ups, downs, and orgasms that come with it.
Ho Tactics, G.L. Lambert
If you can’t judge a book by its cover, then definitely pick it up for the title. This book, by beloved Twitter personality G.L. Lambert (you can find him at @8plus9), delves between the different layers of Sugar in a no-holds barred way. It’s not for the faint of heart, nor is it completely about being a ‘ho,’ which is a term we’ll stay mum about. It is, however, a good tool for a Sugar Baby who wants to get serious about making the most of her time in the Bowl. A great read whether you’re 22 or 45.
I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit Sethi
One of the benefits of being a Sugar Baby is the financial incentive—but if you can’t seem to hold a grip on your cash, you might need a voice of reason to guide you. Enter Ramit Sethi, whose no-nonsense and easy to follow advice will have you stacking Benjamins (and an IRA to boot) in no time. Or, at least, in six weeks, as his book promises. Even if you have little to no experience in personal finance aside from plunking down your credit card (which your SD pays for) this book will help you manage that sweet cash.
