Giant Book Giveaway!

by Mike Holman

Please note that the contest is closed!

It’s been a while since we’ve done a book giveaway on this blog – too long! Between Mr. Cheap and I, we’ve managed to collect quite a few books. Some of them might be more suitable for presents but they are all worth a read (by someone). 🙂


Although we would love everyone to link to us, write a post about the contest, wash my car in order to enter the contest – you don’t have to. All you have to do is enter a comment or send an email to qffpillars at gmail dot com and you are in. I’d very much prefer that you enter a comment rather than use the email option.

The contest will end this Friday, August 29 at 8:00pm.

The books

The Four Pillars of Investing by William Bernstein. One of our favourite readers and commenters Nicolas has graciously donated a copy of this book which is my favourite.

Retire Rich From Real Estate by Marc W. Andersen. I thought this was a pretty good book for learning about real estate investing although Mr. Cheap wasn’t as impressed although he said it is a good book for beginners.

The Little Book of Value Investing by Christopher Browne. This book is great for value and dividend investors – if you are feeling down about your portfolios then this book might be a good pick-me-up!  We posted a review here.

The Quiet Millionaire by Brett Wilder. This is a general personal finance book.

Please Send Money – Dara Duguay. This book is aimed at younger adults who don’t have much financial knowledge.

How it will work

I will pick seven people at random (there are 2 copies of the real estate book and Send Money) and will email them in order.  The winners will get to choose which book they want out of the remaining books.
