Any great personal finance/investment books to read? Or even YouTubers/Podcasters

Really looking into expanding my investment horizons — particularly about learning about how to allocate my investment portfolio. Also, always nice to learn about better ways to save and cutback.

Choice between a really nice property, under budget, with a pool (main reason for wanting this place), minor updates needed + landscaping eventually (well manicured lawn), in great school district (no kids so don't care but it makes it well positioned for resale - only lasted a week last time it was on the market 4 yrs ago), vs. new construction townhouse, in similar area, max budget + higher taxes ... On paper it sounds like a no-brainer but I'm torn... Some help here plz 🙏

Is there an easy/efficient way to figure out how much you've contributed to vs earned in your Roth accounts?

The purpose of doing this is I want to use $10K of it, but want to prove that the $10K is from my contribution.
