Bundle of homesteading books giveaway

Book giveaway

It's time for me to make a little extra space on my shelves...which means one lucky reader is going to have a very special Christmas present show up in their mailbox next week. The seven books and one DVD below have a value of $166, and if you enter this week's giveaway, you can win all eight:

In exchange, I hope you'll help me plug this week's sale --- I've marked the two books in my Permaculture Gardener series (Homegrown Humus and The Naturally Bug-Free Garden) down to 99 cents apiece this week. I'd like to move a lot of copies so the books move up the rankings and are more visible to folks unwrapping kindles this Christmas, so any word-spreading you do would be much appreciated.

Here's the giveaway widget --- thanks in advance for joining in the fun!

Hi Anna, Just wanted to let you know the books don't appear to be marked down for me. Not sure what the problem could be. Cheers, Ant

Anthony --- I'm sorry to hear that! I suspect you live outside the U.S.? Unfortunately, Amazon's countdown deals only work in the U.S. (and in the UK if you set it up that way, but I haven't bothered previously because I seem to have few readers there).

Thanks Anna, I'm from Australia so that would be the reason, however nothing a proxy and a friends address doesn't get around. I've loved all your other books I've bought, so can't wait to read these!

Hi Anna I'm loving your blog and books, and just wanted to say I'd have bought "naturally bug free garden" if the sale was working for me. But I'm from Australia too, and not as tech savvy as the commentator above. As it is I'll probably still buy it, just not right now. I already have homegrown hummus :-)
