Awesome New Ebooks on Simplicity
I don't often write reviews of ebooks, but a handful of them have come out in the last couple weeks that I just can't ignore — I really think they'll be of interest to Zen Habits readers who are interested in getting out of debt, in minimalism, or in reducing dependence on cars.
The first is a project I'm involved in: Unautomate Your Finances. An ebook by Baker of ManvsDebt, it teaches you to curb your impulse spending and become more conscious of your financial habits, so you can stop living paycheck-to-paycheck and take control of your money. I wrote a forward to the ebook and there's a video interview with me on these topics that comes with the book. Buy it here: Unautomate Your Finances.
A quick note: the links to the ebooks in this post are affiliate links, which means that while I'd fully recommend them without compensation, if you do buy a copy you're helping to support Zen Habits.
Some other awesome ebooks I think you'll be interested in:
Haiti Relief Donation
I'm also happy to report back to all of you that my fund-raising effort for the Haiti disaster relief was successful, thanks to all of you! As I said near the end of January, 100% of Zen Habits ebook sales for 30 days would be donated to Doctors Without Borders. Last week, I was happy to make a donation of $6,100 from those ebook sales.
So thank you, all of you, for your generosity!
If you'd still like to buy a Zen Habits ebook to support this site, you can do so:
- Zen To Done.
- The Simple Guide to a Minimalist Life.
- The Zen Habits Handbook for Life.
Zen Habits blog skin, plus a video
Finally, a couple things of potential interest to bloggers:
1. Zen Habits skin. If you buy the Frugal theme for Wordpress, or if you already own it, you can get the Zen Habits skin for Frugal. The skin is free, and it'll make your blog look pretty much like this one, if that's of interest.
2. Video interview with Leo: Making a living online. Eric Hamm, developer of Frugal and blogger at Motivate Thyself, did a video interview with me on making a living online. I don't give you any get-rich-quick answers, but it's a little insight into what has worked for me.
