The big giveaway announced on Sunday is going well (I’m giving away A Random Walk Down Wall Street, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, The 9 Steps To Financial Freedom, Yes, You Can Get A Financial Life, and America’s Cheapest Family Gets You Right On The Money and you could easily win one) and I’ve received a lot of entries. Interestingly, about half of the requests have been for the same book, and one of the five has had no requests at all. Which is which? Only I know… and on with some personal finance posts!
One Year Blogiversary Book Giveaway Get Rich Slowly is also doing a book giveaway right now and the list of choices there is quite nice. Check it out if you want to enter another free personal finance book giveaway. (@ get rich slowly)
