I've only been reading you for a month or so and didn't know you had these books in the Kindle store. Once I get my Kindle, probably around Christmas, I'll pull several of them down.

How many do you have out?

This is volume 7 of Weekend Homesteader, but Mark and I also have a book about staring a microbusiness.

Hi there! I have really been enjoying your blog, I discovered it at some point when I was researching backyard chickening and I came across a link to your chicken waterers webpage. I decided to go back through and read your story from the beginning. For months now I have been engrossed in your tale and thoroughly enjoy reading about your success' and challenges that come your way. I generally don't post comments and prefer to just read along with the story, but the cover of this issue got the better of me. I am big fan of food pictures, even raw chicken I can deal with but cooked poultry without a golden skin always gets to me. Funny though, I can deal with raw eggs, but over-easy eggs are a no-go for me either (maybe I see it as under-cooked). Your ebook journey has been so interesting to me, but I have to scroll past this picture every time it comes up and just don't ready the text that is around it. Anyway, just some feedback from a hopeful future homesteader. Until then I live vicariously through those that have the opportunity to raise their own chicken, eat sun-warmed tomatoes and strawberries by the bowlful. Thank you for showing the masses what your world looks like! Jennifer
