Unfortunately it will have to be U.S. participants only and the book I am giving away is used.
Years ago when I first started this quest towards self-sufficiency, there was one book that was recommended to me more than any other and that was Back to Basics. I wanted that book more than anything but it was just too expensive. It wasn't until just a few years ago that I finally found one in the thrift store and got my own copy. Finally! And it definitely is a good book. If there is something about self-sufficiency that isn't in the book, I don't know what it is. So today when I saw another copy at the thrift store I just immediately snatched it up. I didn't know at the time what I would do with it but I had a feeling that there were others out there who might want this book and couldn't afford it either so that is where the give-away idea came from.
So if you have been wanting your own copy of Back to Basics you can enter 3 ways (and get an entry for each one): like us on facebook here (sorry only new likes are going to count), link to us on Twitter, or link to us on any other page you have such as facebook or a forum etc.
Let me know what you did in your reply and if it was the last option leave me a link to where you shared this blog.
I'll do the drawing say.....next Saturday (hopefully that will be enough time). Just so you know, I won't be swayed by anyone's "story" of how badly they want the book. I am just going to put the entries into a coffee can and draw out a name.
You will then have to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I will know your email and can contact you in case you are not paying attention to who is the winner next Saturday (I, myself, tend to enter these things and then forget that I did).
I got a few other really good books too so there will be more give-aways to come.
