Have you had a chance to look through all the eBooks (86!) offered in the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle sale I wrote about on Monday? Um, yeah, it can be a little overwhelming – I mean, to be honest one of the first things I think about when I see huge lists of books like this is “when am I going to have time to read all these?” But here’s the thing: you don’t have to read them all! At just .34 for each ebook (and that’s not counting all the bonuses and the online conference!), I don’t feel bad bypassing the topics that are not calling to me at the season of life I’m in now (pregnancy & birth books, I’m talkin’ about you…).
And once the books are a part of your ebook library – whether that’s your computer, tablet, or phone – you can read them whenever you do have time, even if it’s a year from now! I had a great time over the summer reading many of the homemaking books I got through last spring’s sale. When I had some time to relax on our new gazebo furniture, it was easy enough to just scroll through the books in my Kindle app and see what I was in the mood for!
You do have to download the pdf files to your computer when you receive your email with the eBook links after purchasing, but once they are on your computer you can transfer them to a tablet or phone easily. There are a number of ways to do this, which are outlined on the UHL Bundle FAQ page, but my favorite way to transfer the pdfs to my tablet is the Send To Kindle app. I installed it on my desktop and then I can simply drag anything I want to read on my tablet to the app and it loads it into my tablet’s Kindle app. The one thing to know about this, though, is that any links included in the original ebook (which still remains on your computer – the Kindle app just copies it) don’t come through to the tablet format.
Here are a few of the titles I’m looking forward to adding to my library from this huge list of great resources:
I’m always looking for ways to improve or streamline my meal planning, and this bundle has a number of menus ebooks and two planning helps – this Meals ePlanner as well as a bonus offer of a 4-Month Plan To Eat subscription, a really cool online menu planner that I’ve been wanting to try. I’ve been using the same pen-and-paper system for more than 10 years, so it could be time for a change, ha!
Just in time for holiday baking is Nourishing Cookies for a Healthy Holiday. I’ve been experimenting with baking sweets with less refined sugars and flours, like Dark Chocolate Zucchini Cookies, Healthier Peanut Butter Balls, and Whole Wheat Blackberry Crumb Bars, so I’m excited to learn about 10 more naturally sweetened options, including a soft honey cookie with honey buttercream, yum!
I’ve followed Katie at Kitchen Stewardship for years and have a few of her other eBooks, so I know she offers great stuff. And you know I’m all about scratch cooking, so I’m looking forward to learning a few more things that are Better Than A Box to go along with my own salad dressings, honey-sweetened ketchup, and easy mayo.
Ah, be still my frugal-loving heart! Using food you’d normally throw away? Um, yes, please – I’m happy to read From Garbage to Gourmet and learn a few more ways I could be using the abundance of food we are blessed with in our country – and throwing less away.
I’ve also been wanting to read Real Food on a Real Budget for awhile now – although I’ve read and implemented various ways to save, it SO easy to spend a lot more on real food with stores like Whole Foods and their aisles of cool-looking – and expensive – items. How to eat healthfully on a budget – that’s important and close to my heart.
