Free e-books on saving or making money, October 19
It's getting cold in my neck of the woods, prompting some reminiscing at my regular blog over frugal ways to stay warm- and we have experience. more than once we have lived in ancient farm houses where the curtains billowed in the breeze with the windows shut, and water froze in the bedrooms overnight. Brrrrr.
Curling up under the covers with a good book is a cozy way to stay warm, and here are some free ebooks you can read on your Kindle OR on your laptop. It's not, of course, quite so easy to snuggle up to the laptop.;-D
Free downloads at Amazon- you don't need a Kindle. You can download and read from your computer.
Books are free at teh time of posting, but the free status changes quickly. Be careful to check the price before ordering.
I haven't previewed these thoroughly- there's not time to read the book and post it before it's no longer free. I did read the descriptions and the first page or two of about twice as many free books as I've posted here to weed out some that seem to be an obvious waste of time.

The world is experiencing a lot of turmoil these days especially economic turmoil. Uncertainty is in the air. There is no question things are changing rapidly. The old economy is dying as a new one emerges. Charles Dickens put it like this in the first line of his book, Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, and the worst of times."
We all have a choice to make which time it is going to be for us. Many people, even us Christians, have been playing the blame game for far too long. It is time to start taking personal accountability for our own actions. There is Corn In Egypt simply points us back to the principles of God in scripture concerning money.
As Paul the Apostle stated, "If we neglect so great a salvation we will not escape the wrath that is to come." Similarly, if we neglect the knowledge of God concerning our personal finances we are sure to end up in economic destruction at a personal level.
The author takes you on a journey of hope into the book of Genesis to the story of Joseph, son of Jacob. Through Joseph's story he shares a process that can lead struggling saints out of financial despair. There is Corn In Egypt offers the struggling Christian hope of a better economic tomorrow.
