A Message From Woodstock for Capitalists
You've probably heard of a mass pilgrimmage of business enthusiasts and investing nerds to the lovely city of Omaha, NE in America's heartland. There a ceratin "Oracle of Omaha" holds court each year. Unfortunately, due to the global health pandemic, the annual pilgrimmage to Omaha will not happen this year. Alhough the BRK faithful can't gather in person this year, we can preserve some of the rituals of the event, namely learning, eating steak, and restocking our underwear supply! (Unfortunately, Dairy Queen ice cream bars don't ship very well.)
The website you are currently reading is *not associated with Berkshire Hathaway Inc. in any way*, but we do greatly admire the company, the annual gathering it attracts, and the city of Omaha. In the spirit of capitalism, some (though not all) of the links on this site are affiliate links. This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, we will receive an affiliate commission at no extra cost to you.
I estimate that BRK shareholders learn by reading just about as much as anybody. The Bookworm, an independent bookstore in Omaha, has been supplying the reading needs of shareholders at the meeting since the early 2000s. Though we aren't acquainted or affiliated with the owners, we're sure this local business would appreciate your continued support this year. Visit www.bookwormomaha.com and click on the Berkshire Hathaway tab at the top to find a selection of relevant books.
While you can't sit down to a rare T-Bone with a double helping of hashbrowns at Gorat's steakhouse, you can have delicious Nebraska beef shipped straight to your door from
Omaha Steak's. Likewise, Nebraska Furniture Mart delivers to 47 states (excluding Alaska, Hawaii and California)! Even without the shareholder discount, NFM.com has just about the best furniture prices you'll find anywhere. NFM stays true to Rose Blumpkin's motto, "Sell cheap and tell the truth."
Finally, we recommend staying comfortable while you social distance. Nothing beats a fresh pair of Fruit of the Loom briefs while you're quarantined at home with your new stack of books. Shop the selection of Fruit of the Loom goods on Amazon.
