Like My Blog? Buy the Book!

I've done it again! I published another book on Kindle. This time, I selected around 75 of my favorite blog posts, out of the 1010 that I have written, and put them in a book I'm calling "The Best of Wrestling With Retirement." Included is my very first post, written in June of 2009.

I'm hoping my readers will enjoy the opportunity to read some posts they may have missed if they became followers after June of 2009. I really feel that some of my best work is included in the collection, and am excited to have the collection available for those readers who enjoy my weird sense of humor.

To take a peek inside this new publication of mine, click here. You'll be glad to know I've included such posts as "The End of A Musical Career," (How I learned I was musically challenged) "My Restroom Rant," (My complaint about public restrooms), "Adventures in Adult Education" (How I
handled the lobstermen and clam diggers' attempts to embarrass me)  and "The Pleasure Hunt" (My search for the G-Spot!) and many more.

To check out the rest of the books I've published on Kindle, click here.

Don't have a Kindle?  Microsoft has a FREE application that will allow you to download Kindle books to your PC.   Learn more about that here!

Can you tell I'd love for you to buy my books, and tell your friends about them?  There's a reason for this.

My youngest son (pictured on my Silent Sunday post) has announced that he and his girlfriend are now engaged and will be having a "destination wedding" in Jamaica in May of 2013!  I need to reserve plane tickets and hotel for this event....which is not a cheap item.  Just think, buy a book or two and you'll be helping Mr. Eva and I attend the wedding!

Thanks in advance!!!!

Ah, I'm chuckling behind your reasoning here. Mostly because I get it. I mean, really get it. I want my book to sell so maybe I can help pay for my son's college textbooks next fall, or winter. Desperate times and all that.

I'm slowly assembling a list of e-books to buy when I get a kindle, now this has been added.
Jamaica is on of the places I send my mind to when reality gets a little too much to bear.

Brian Miller said... email yesterday...and i betyou will love jamaica if we can get you i learned i was musically challenged sounds fun...

I have a book on Kindle, too, but I didn't put it on there. I guess my publisher did. It seems strange to me, like I had no choice in the matter. (Probably because I didn't!)

I'm sure it's a lot more fun doing it yourself, and I think I might like to try that sometime. I will definitely go check out your new book on my Kindle!

I have published my blog on shared book every quarter since day one. I only do it for myself...I have 13 big hardcover volumes. :-)

This doesn't sound like a bad idea.
I'll compile 75 of the best posts from "Wrestling With Retirement" and put them in a Kindle.
Oh? You mean I should use "Penwasser Place"?
Hmm...I guess that would work, too.
