Anyone else having a problem purchasing this? I get an error:

We're sorry!
We had a problem processing your order.....


All my other purchases today went through fine.


Edit: Never mind, eventually went through when I selected Deliver to my Kindle.

FREE again, for the month of October. It's been updated, so if you already have this one or other Weekend Homesteader, you need to update your book.

Weekend Homesteader: October [Kindle Edition] Anna Hess (Author)


http://www.amazon.com/Weekend-Homest...s_154606011_84

By October, homesteaders in most parts of the U.S. are thinking hard about winter. This month's volume of Weekend Homesteader introduces two different ways to eat fresh produce deep into the cold months --- plucking winter squash and sweet potatoes right off the shelf and harvesting leafy greens from under quick hoops. Meanwhile, you'll take advantage of free mulch and compost going to waste in your neighborhood and will find out whether life at the poverty line is something to be scared of.

For those of you who are new to Weekend Homesteader, this series walks you through the basics of growing your own food, cooking the bounty, preparing for emergency power outages, and achieving financial independence. Technically, the series began in May (or November in the southern hemisphere), but most of the projects are designed to be accessible even to someone starting from square one each month. This ebook, and each other volume in the series, presents one easy and fun project for each weekend so that you'll keep making headway without becoming overwhelmed.

I'm hoping they'll put them all up on Kindle eventually, so I can replace my paper copies (sadly, I won't subscribe to their "subscription" version, as you lose all of your magazines if you ever cancel and to keep more than a few issues, you have to actively "keep" them on a device, then you lose them if the device breaks).

Only 130 issues or so to go and I'll have my collection replaced... ok, not that many, because they used to do a PDF disc you could buy for each year, until they became paranoid about copies existing on torrent sites.

Weekend Homesteader: February [Kindle Edition]
Anna Hess (Author)

http://www.amazon.com/Weekend-Homest...s_154606011_92

Escape the winter doldrums by expanding your homestead. Easy garden additions like strawberries and raspberries can provide delicious fruit for your family in a year or less. Add homegrown eggs from your new chicken flock and you'll have a feast. Meanwhile, buying non-perishables in bulk will save money while ensuring you have plenty of food during emergencies. Finally, an informal apprenticeship is the perfect way to learn hands-on skills like milking a cow or fermenting grapes into wine.

For those of you who are new to Weekend Homesteader, this series walks you through the basics of growing your own food, cooking the bounty, preparing for emergency power outages, and achieving financial independence. Technically, the series began in May (or November in the southern hemisphere), but most of the projects are designed to be accessible even to someone starting from square one each month.

Quote:
Twelve months to self-sufficiency!

This fully updated second edition of the popular Weekend Homesteader series includes exciting, short projects that you can use to dip your toes into the vast ocean of homesteading without getting overwhelmed. If you need to fit homesteading into a few hours each weekend and would like to have fun while doing it, these projects will be right up your alley, whether you live on a forty-acre farm, a postage-stamp lawn in suburbia, or a high rise.

The December volume includes the following projects:
Plant a fruit tree
Cook up a pot of soup
Narrow down your list of essential tools
Stay warm without electricity

The second edition has been revised and expanded to match the paperback, with extra photos and feedback from weekend homesteaders just like you, plus permaculture-related avenues for the more advanced homesteader to explore.

Survival 101: The Essential Guide to Saving Your Own Life in a Disaster [Kindle Edition]
Marcus Duke (Author)


http://www.amazon.com/Survival-101-E...154606011_f_50

Quote:
"Survival 101: The Essential Guide to Saving Your Own Life in a Disaster" is a must-have introductory guide that acquaints the reader with essential survival techniques and tactics.

This book won't turn you into an overnight soldier of fortune, but you'll definitely find some extremely useful tidbits on starting a fire, surviving on limited water rations, building a basic stockpile of supplies, dealing with medical issues in a crisis situation and much more!


TABLE OF CONTENTS
=============================
SECTION I. Prepare for The Expected
SECTION II. Creating Fire
SECTION III. Dealing with Dehydration
SECTION IV. Securing Shelter
SECTION V. Makeshift Medical Care
SECTION VI. Handling Common Natural Disasters
SECTION VII. A Final Review

Never canned before? This book is a must-have for any beginning canner! Jackie delves into canning basics, outlines the important differences between water bath canning and pressure canning, talks about proper canning equipment and storage of home canned foods, and addresses beginning canners' mishaps and confusions.
