Mary of Plymouth (Online Vintage Children's Book and Audiobook)

From Mary of Plymouth: A Story of the Pilgrim Settlement by James Otis, 1910:

"My name is Mary, and I am setting down all these things about our people here in this new world, hoping some day to send to my dear friend, Hannah, who lives in Scrooby, England, what may really come to be a story, even though the writer of it is only sixteen years old, having lived in Plymouth since the day our company landed from the Mayflower in 1620, more than eleven years ago."

You can read the rest of the classic children's book online here. There are several formats to choose from and the "Read Online" option has the text nicely laid out as though you were looking at an open book. Just click to turn the page! The book also has a lovely assortment of illustrations throughout.

The Penny Pantry: Money Saving Strategies for Building a Gigantic Home Pantry for Pennies!

Here is a brand new e-book by homeschooling mother of 8, Bethany Vaughn. At 75 pages long this book is packed with information on how to drastically slash your grocery bill (thereby leaving more room in your budget for books heh, heh.;-)) while stocking a large pantry.

The book is well laid out and covers a range of ways to reduce spending from couponing (which Bethany explains in very helpful detail) to buying in bulk. I also appreciated the fact that she makes it clear that one can still eat healthy,whole foods on a small budget.

The book is currently on sale here for $9.95, but is well worth the non-sale price of $14.95 as well. Be sure to subscribe to Bethany's new blog
