Books, Taking Your Gardening Dollar

Loads of Garden-Related eBooks for $1.99

If you’re sitting around in a post-holiday daze, wondering what to load onto the new ereader/tablet/laptop/smartphone you just got over the holidays, I have an answer!  To my delight, my publisher Algonquin has put a ton of ebooks on sale today.  Here’s a list of all the garden/nature titles they’re discounting right now.  I’m linking to Kobo, the ebook retailer whose books can be read across a wide variety of devices.  But if you buy your ebooks somewhere else, you can check there too–chances are you’ll find the same prices on several sites.  I’m pretty sure these prices are good through Sunday night, but get to it! Time’s a-wastin!

And remember, if you don’t own an ebook reader device, you can still read ebooks on your smartphone, tablet, or computer through a free app.

Here’s what I’ve got for you:

French Dirt: The Story of a Garden in the South of France, by Richard Goodman, a charming tale of–well, a garden in the south of France!

Waking Up in Eden: In Pursuit of an Impassioned Life on an Imperiled Island   by Lucinda Fleeson–Hawaii?  Botanical gardens? Living the dream? A good escapist read for winter!

The Nature Principle – Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age, by Richard Louv — an important book by the author of Last Child in the Woods.

The $64 Tomato – How One Man Nearly Lost His Sanity, Spent a Fortune, and Endured an Existential Crisis in the Quest for the Perfect Garden, by William Alexander.  The title says it all.  Also, 52 Loaves, about growing grain and baking bread and so much more.

Bob Tarte’s hilarious Enslaved by Ducks, about his life with fowl.  Also, Fowl Weather.

100 Birds and How They Got Their Names by Diana Wells.  Also, Lives of Trees.

Ginseng, the Divine Root: The Curious History of the Plant That Captivated the World, by  David A. Taylor

Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden, by Emily Whaley

My favorite garden novel of all time, Rose’s Garden, by Carrie Brown.

Settled In The Wild: Notes From The Edge Of Town by Susan Hand Shetterly

The Writer in the Garden, an anthology of garden writing edited by Jane Garmey.

And all of my books are included in the sale as well.
