This could be you!
(Cat, mask, and pleasant living room not included.)

I have truly enjoyed the responses my recent posts on learning to live "more with less" (read them here, here, and here) have inspired.  I an anticipate more entries on this theme in the coming months, and in the meantime, I would love to put a copy of Living More with Less into your hands. Few things are more delightful than receiving a book in the mail, and I'm eager to share that happiness with you. I have an extra copy of the original edition, and I would love to express my gratitude to all my faithful readers by offering this compelling book as a giveaway.

  1. Well, it's Lauren here. And I posted the link to your post of you reading "The Little Match Girl" because I love listening to your Christmas stories!

    Email is laurenhaws at gmail dot com. I'd love to read that book! I was telling Charlie about it last week, and I mentioned that I need a good recipe for lentils. :-)

  2. I shared the Harry Potter was kind of a duh thing for me. Oh, and I shared it on Facebook. My e-mail is lindsay dot goodwin at gmail dot com.

  3. Liz here. I shared the "Where Nothing is Wasted, or Why My Mother is Awesome"
    I posted it on my facebook. You can reach me at

  4. I'm not sure it counts, but I shared a link to your entry on grocery shopping with less on my blog. I have just finished reading the newer edition of the book and loved the chapters written by Doris Janzen Longacre, making me wish I could read more of the original. But I'm also hesitant to take away from someone who hasn't read it at all.

  5. I shared "You, Me, Light Inside" on my Tumblr -->

  6. It's Katie here. I posted on Facebook about the Letter-Writing Challenge post ( It's my favorite because I was brave enough to write you a letter and I received not only a letter, but a dear friend in return.
