  1. I haven’t read either of your books and I’m a fairly new Kindle owner so I just bought them both. Thanks for pricing them so reasonably!

    Right now I’m reading Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift and Alone Together by Sherry Turkle.

      Thanks Jill! One of the highlights of self publishing is controlling the price. I’d love your feedback once you have a chance to read the books.

      Also, thanks for sharing what you are reading. I am building my reading list for 2013!

  2. Like you, I’m really looking forward to having some extra reading time over the Christmas holidays! It’s what I look forward to right through those last busy months of the year! Thanks for the list about why e-readers are great. I’m thinking about getting one next year. I love my hard copy books, but can definitely see a use for an e-reader, especially when travelling or just going out and about and not knowing which books to take with me (I’ll be able to take them all on my e-reader!).

      Hi Kim, It definitely takes some getting used to, but well worth the adjustment period. ;)

      Also remember that you can read Kindle books on your computer!

  3. At first, I wasn’t sure I would like the Kindle,because I do love holding a book in my hands. However,I love it! It is so easy,no shipping,no shipping materials,and it doesn’t take up space,which is very important in my small house. I have a few of the books you mention (including yours!)I suggested your books on my blog just the other day :)

  4. One of my favorite reasons is I can read at night without disturbing my husband and without fumbling around with a book light. I have yet to meet a book light I get along well with!

  5. I’m proud to say that i’ve read 80% of those recommended ebooks :) I have read your ebook land of enough twice and got the simple ways one this week and finished it fast. Ebooks our great! I also built up the confidence to message Tammy on facebook and tell her how much she has inspired me and how I loved her ebook (read it twice as well).

    And now i’m reaching out to you! I think you’re very helpful. I hope to one day talk to you and write about you on my blog.
    Thank you so much for being so inspirational and giving great advice and tips! I hope you show up on YouTube more as well, I’ve only seen two videos!

    I hope we can get in contact one day, have a great day!

      Hi Cheri,

      I don’t do a lot of video, but that could change! Thanks so much for purchasing my books and reaching out. That is one of the best thing about blogging is that you can easily connect with like minded people. Say hi anytime and let me know if I can be helpful.

      • I would love to see more videos! :)

        Keep writing such great books, and i’ll have no problem reading them, especially since they are at a great price also.

        The internet is pretty amazing, I love being able to connect to like minded people. I would love to have you as a sort of life mentor, even as a friend! Maybe I will move to e-mail to talk to you!

  6. Thank you for sharing such a great list of books. I just bought your two e-books. I’m looking forward to reading them tonight when i get back home. I will also look into getting “Simplicity: Essays”. I like the idea of reading short essays and also like that they come from such high-paying/stressful lives but still never looked back after choosing less. It is truly the way to go.

    Thanks for writing and keeping us motivated!

    Just downloaded your book Living in the land of enough. Looking forward to reading it. I am reading a book series with each paper book being around 850 pages. This is another reason to love an e-reader!

    Great post! One of the things that have hold me back in buying a kindle is the fact that I mostly read at night before going to sleep. I have trouble falling asleeping and reading some light fiction from a real/paper book makes me relaxe. I am concerned that a digital divise will do the contrary and keep me awake. What are your thought on that?
