Book Giveaway: Spring Cleaning Edition.

I’m clearing my shelves of some great personal finance books. Rather than stretch these giveaways out over several weeks, I’m going to be giving away these bundles all at once. All you need to do to enter is to leave a comment on my site specifying which bundle you’re MOST interested in, and which is your second choice.

When you leave your comment here on my blog (not my Facebook page), make sure to include your email address. It won’t show up with your comment, but I’ll be able to see it so I can contact you if you win. Comments are moderated, so it may take a little while for your comment to show up.

The deadline to enter is midnight Pacific time on Friday. Over the weekend, please check your email (including your spam filter). If I don’t hear from a winner by noon Pacific time on Monday, his or her prize will be forfeited and I’ll pick another winner.

And the bundles are:

The Millennial Bundle. These are great books for people in their 20s and 30s, whether they’re just setting up their finances or starting to make big decisions, like buying homes. The books include “Broke Millennial” by Erin Lowry, “Get a Financial Life” by Beth Kobliner and “The Couple’s Guide to Financial Compatibility” by Jeff Motske.

The Kids & Money Bundle.
Want to set your kids on the right financial path? These books can help. They include “Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not)” by Beth Kobliner and “The Teen Money Manual” by Kara McGuire.

The College-Bound Bundle. A college degree has never been more important, or more expensive. These books can help families prepare. They include “The Perfect Score Project” by Debbie Stier, “The Thinking Student’s Guide to College” by Andrew Roberts, “Colleges that Change Lives” by Loren Pope and Hilary Masell Oswald and “Twisdoms about Paying for College” by Mark Kantrowitz.

The Money and Meaning Bundle. These authors dive deeper into how we find purpose and meaning in life, through the filter of money. The books include “Mindful Money” by Jonathan K. DeYoe, “End Financial Stress Now” by Emily Guy Birken, “Leap” by Tess Vigeland and “You Only Live Once” by Jason Vitug.

The Closing-in-on-Retirement Bundle. Someday sooner than you think, retirement will morph from a distant possibility to a looming certainty. These books can help you navigate to the retirement you want. They include “How to Make Your Money Last” by Jane Bryant Quinn, “Unretirement” by Chris Farrell and “Choose Your Retirement” by Emily Guy Birken.

The Big Thinker Bundle. These books are ideal for those who have mastered the basics and want to know more about how finances and the economy work. They include: “The New Rules of Real Estate” by Spencer Rascoff and Stan Humphries, “The Economics Book” by DK Publishing and “Retirement Heist” by Ellen Schultz.

    I’d love the kids bundle or the college bundle! Our son is 11 and we want him to have a good foundation of knowledge before he leaves the nest!

  2. The closing in on retirement bundle.

  3. The only bundle I’m really interested in, because of the stage of life I’m facing now, is The Closing-in-on-Retirement Bundle. Rather than arbitrarily selecting a second choice, I’d prefer that you pick someone who does want one of the others if I don’t win the retirement bundle.
