Since I've been preoccupied with the past for the last few posts, I thought it was time to offer a couple of books that have been hogging up space on my, already, cluttered desk top.
Ordinarily the idea of giving away one of my books (*mine* as in I own them, not *mine* as in I wrote them - that's for later ;) gives me hives, but this time is different, because I got the books from a very generous freecycler in an advertised "box of books - come and get them", but I already had these two, which tells me that they are good books to have in one's personal library.
The first is Handbook of Homemade Power by The Mother Earth News, originally published in 1974, but given the number of copies I've seen floating around recently, maybe even more applicable to our times than when it was written.
The second is the First Collier Books Edition of Bradford Angier's How to Stay Alive in the Woods: A Complete Guide to Food, Shelter and Self-Preservation Anywhere printed in 1962.
If you would like to be considered to receive a copy of either book, please leave your comment and indicate whether or not you have a preference.
I'll do the drawing at the end of April.
Update: Please see the comments for Richard P's giveaway ... but don't enter the drawing, because The Backyard Homestead is on my wishlist, and the more people who enter his drawing, the slimmer my chances of winning become ;). Okay, just kidding. You can enter his drawing, but don't forget to enter mine first ;).
