Tomorrow is the last day to get $640 worth of home related ebooks for $29.97.

I clicked on the one that’s squared in, 28 Days to Hope for your Home and it downloaded in about 1.5 seconds. Super fast. PLUS, if there are ebooks here you don’t need, you can load them on a flash drive and give them to Mom as a gift, as long as you delete them from your computer after you load them.

My sister’s coming in town tonight and I’m so excited. What do you have going on this weekend?
