The ‘Skinny On’ Books

in Giveaways

Today’s giveaway comes from the ‘Skinny On:’ books by Jim Randel. I have three books to give away: The Skinny On Credit Cards, The Skinny On The Housing Crisis and The Skinny On Willpower.

I received these copies to review (I didn’t know about them before) and I find them to be really informative and a great way to learn the basics of a situation. My (French) husband was having a hard time understanding exactly how the housing crisis developed and The Skinny On The Housing Crisis book really helped. Each book is a quick read, but still with lots of information. I think they would be quite good for people who want uncomplicated information about a complicated situation.

Three readers will win a copy (one for each book, natch!). Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment, saying which book you would like to win and why.
  • Tweet about the contest on Twitter, mentioning @AlmostFrugal, and ‘The Skinny On books’ and including a link to the post.
  • Subscribe to my feed (one time only please!) by RSS or email and look for the special code word at the bottom of each post in the feed. Then email me at almostfrugal at gmail dot com with the special code word in the subject of the email. There’s no need to write anything in the bottom of the email, as it won’t be read.
  • Write a post about one or all of the contests, linking back to each contest you write about. No need to let me know you’ve written the post- there will be an automatic trackback to each entry.
  • Sign up for the Almost Frugal blog network or fan page (one time only please!) on Facebook. Then email me at almostfrugal at gmail dot com with your user name so that I can recognize you and record your entry.

Each contest starts at 12 noon GMT the day the post is published and each contest ends on April 21, 2009 at 12 noon GMT. The contests are open to international contestants, unless stated otherwise. Each contestant can enter multiple contests, but may only win one of them. I reserve the right to disqualify contestants for any reason.

Good luck!

Oh, I would love to win The Skinny On Willpower because that’s definitely something I’m lacking in various situations. (Think chocolate!)

Am going to tweet about this as I’m already subscribed to your feed.

Hand sdown: The Skinny on Willpower. I used to have so much more of it , but in the past few years I’ve noticed my willpower in regards to a lot of stuff has dipped dramatically. I really need it back!

Oh, I’d like to win the “Skinny on the Housing Crisis” .

I just don’t understand it. Maybe because I’m a renter, and I like being one at this point in my life, but I don’t understand the HUGE “need” for absolutely everyone to own a house and then cause such giant problems!

You know, I’ve always hated those “for Dummies” books. These sound like a much more positive spin then that! Sign me up!
