Free homesteading books

Free books

First, a little bit of business.  Congratulations to Stephen, winner of our free homesteading calendar!  Be sure to email me your mailing address and your calendar will go in the mail next week.  Jayne tells me the calendars will be showing up at her house by the end of the week and she'll be mailing them out soon thereafter, so this is a perfect time for everyone else to place your orders while the calendars are in stock.  Now, back to the real post....

Every few years, I go through my bookcase and pull out tomes I'm no longer using.  Fiction goes to the library and general-interest non-fiction goes to my mother, but in-depth homesteading geekery needs another home.  Perhaps yours?

The following books are free to a good home.  (I'll even pay postage.)  It's first come, first served, so email ASAP if you'd like a copy.  I'll mark out each title as it's taken:

As a side note, my books became much happier once I added wooden dividers to keep them all lined up straight.  My new method of spending half an hour on a long-ignored household problem once a week is paying off!

Aw Nuts! I knew I should have checked the blog while I was at work today!

I'll have to experience Ben Falk vicariously through you this week :)
