Being a bit cheeky

I'm going to be a bit cheeky here and suggest that one of my books might make a good Christmas gift. All three are on special at Booktopia, at good prices.  For my UK and European friends, Book Depositary also have a special price on all my books.  And for everyone in northern America, Amazon have the three Kindle versions. You still have time to order the books online and have them delivered before Christmas.

Megan at Odgers and McClelland Exchange Stores has passed on their Christmas delivery deadlines: Christmas postage deadlines are Friday December 9 for WA, NT, SA, TAS and QLD, and Friday December 16 for NSW and VIC.  So you still have a couple of weeks to make your selections and get those parcels in the mail

If you intend doing some Christmas knitting this year, or want to learn how to knit, the week after Christmas is the ideal opportunity to take some time for yourself and develop a new skill. Salahan at Eco Yarns, one of my valued sponsors has an excellent range of good quality of eco-friendly yarns that suit most purposes. Put your order in now or by early December to make sure you have your wools, cottons and knitting needs before Christmas.


Next week I hope to have information from the lovely Biome stores about their Christmas trading and gift ideas.

  1. I still havnt bought your latest book - Though I have been intending too! I might drop it on my book order for Christmas and treat myself, you know to save on postage and packaging so they all come at once. ;)

  2. FYI - Amazon does not seem to have Down to Earth in the Kindle format, and the physical book is out of stock. It says 'see all 2 formats' but then only offers the out-of-stock hardcover.

    1. I'm sorry about that, Iris. I just checked the Book Depository in the UK and they have the Down to Earth hardcover for about $26 US with free delivery.

  3. I can vouch for The Simple Life. It would indeed make a great Christmas gift. :) When I last checked I couldn't find the others here in the U.S., but I have no doubt they're equally good.

  4. Hi Rhonda :-)
    I ordered The Simple Life and The Simple Home a few weeks ago (the DTE book I already have), using the offer of free delivery from Book Depository. Looking forward to reading both! I´m sure they will be two great guides and a source of inspiration along this way.

  6. What a great idea Rhonda. Whilst I love hard copy books, being an ex-librarian, we travel to the family at Christmas and having good recipes on hand in addition to my blog is a bonus for me as I always end up doing the cooking, which of course I love. I'll search to see if your books are available on kindle, otherwise I think I will send myself a Christmas present, LOL.

    1. That sounds like a plan.

      I love reading about the various ways my books are used. I've heard that some love to read my books for inspiration, to get ideas, for recipes, because they've connected with my family and because they feel motivated to live well. It's all great feedback for me but it also helps me feel connected to those who read my books and who live in a similar way. xx

  7. Hi Rhonda I have already given your books to my children, they are not quite as committed as me, but i hope with time they will see the value of a simpler life. It is quite different looking back in time at the changes that have happened and how products have changed. When I first started shopping our groceries were packed into sturdy brown paper bags, the use of plastic those days was minimal. However if you go back even further in time everything my Gran bought was wrapped in paper, no wasteful plastic in sight, I hate thinking of this junk ending in land fill and wish we could go back to a better time.

  8. Good morning Rhonda,
    I have not been here in a little over 3 weeks, cause on the 23rd my house burned down. We pretty much lost everything including my beautiful rag doll cat, Tess. I also lost your wonderful 2 hardcover books. I just read this post and thought, yay I can replace them on kindle. But no, your first is not available on kindle only the little one, which I already bought and the second. The first book is now only available used for upwards of 125.00!
    Anyway, we are ok, have insurance and will rebuild, but next to someone close to you dying, this is almost devastating event in life. We will move on Friday into our 3rd temporary home in as many weeks, but it is till May 1, so we can settle in and get some sense of calm for the winter while we regroup. Please add us to this great group of peoples good thoughts. Dale, Vermont, US

    1. Oh Dale, I'm so sorry. What a terrible thing. And to lose Tess, that's very sad. I'm pleased to know you have your family around you and that you have the ability to rebuild. Take care over the coming months. It will take a while to come to terms with such a horrible event.

      You can buy my books online at the Book Depository in the UK. At the moment Down to Earth is about $25 US and they have free world-wide delivery.

      Take care, love. xx
