Giveaway #2 - "Just-Add-Water" Granola with Milk & Blueberries (**Closed**)


Granola with Milk and Blueberries
Today's giveaway is sponsored by Emergency Essentials.  They are giving away a #10 can of one of their new "Just-Add-Water" foods - Granola with Milk & Blueberries!


This month Emergency Essentials is introducing five new Provident Pantry Just-Add-Water Meals and to celebrate, they are all on sale. Each of these meals are so easy to prepare. They are perfect for food storage, taking out on a backpacking or camping trip, or they are a great easy meal for a night when you don't want to cook.


Want to win your own #10 can of Granola with Milk & Blueberries?  Just leave a comment on this post telling us,


What's the best book you've read recently?


I realize that "recently" may mean a year ago for some of you (everyone is so busy, I know!), but I always love book recommendations so let me hear them!


This giveaway is open until tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. EDT, and the winner will be announced soon after that.  One entry per person, please.


Be sure to head over to Emergency Essentials to see all the other good stuff they have!  I don't know about you, but I've already started my Christmas lists (giving and hope-to-receive lists), and I'm definitely thinking of leaning toward more practical gifts this year (you know, food storage/emergency prep stuff -- really!).  Emergency Essentials is a great place to start!

A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. It changed the way I look at everything and it made me feel smarter. :)

Cortney said...

The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. Teaches that each person has their own way of showing love and needing love. For example, it doesn't pay to show my love to my husband by doing all kinds of good deeds for him if what he needs is positive affirmation. I recommend this book to anyone actually, it's not just for married couples. It has showed me how to love my kids better too. My husband and I are now giving this book as a wedding gift.

LaurieNguyen said...

I loved "The Help." Great book. Hope to see the movie.

D said...

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - I read it once back in high school or college and couldn't remember a lot of the details, so I read it again as the new movie came out. It was SO good. Much better than I remembered.
Also I am reading a collection of short stories "Masterpieces of Mystery and Suspense" compiled by Martin Greenberg. Those are great too, because it is a lot easier to finish a short story than a whole novel.

Ian said...

The most recent book I read was "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron. One of the main ways I'm planning on earning my independence from my 8-5 job is by publishing my science fiction works. I was having a terrible problem with writer's block because I couldn't get past the stress in my life and this book completely solved it. I'm having new ideas pop into my head every day almost faster than I can get them on paper. It was truly inspiring and I would recommend it to anyone.

I would be thrilled to win as I'm desperately trying to build up my emergency supplies, but dead broke and working too hard for someone else. Thank you.

The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. It's not about monsters ... well maybe it is, since it's about our government.

The Dark Tower series by Stephen King

Patriots; Surviving The Coming Collapse is a MUST read for every prepper. Also, One Second After which is another great book to show us all how unprepared we are.

Mark said...

A tie between 'Lights Out' and a series of books by Thomas Sherry. All Fantastic books!

David N said...

Definitely the book that change my life was "You Can Farm" by Joel F. Salatin. As a person who wants to provide for my family whether it be TEOTWAWKI, SHTF, a natural disaster, or a loss of a job, this book inspired me to learn to be a husbandman. I think a seriously overlooked skill in survival and preparedness is husbandry. It takes time and skill to raise animals and become a producer rather than a consumer. Team up husbandry with some quality food stuffs you will be ready for anything!

Anna Oman said...

I really enjoyed "Daddy Long Legs" by Jean Webster.

lulu said...

Last book read --- Spookley the Square Pumpkin....to my kids before bed last night, lol.

The First Two Thousand Years by Cleon Skousen. Fascinating!

Melarie Wheat said...

Just finished re- reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Same situation as D above mentioned, read it a long time ago and with the new movie I realized I really didn't remember much (just that I liked it). So glad I re-read it! Even though it was written over a hundred years ago the themes are still relevant and it is beautifully written.

I haven't read anything but the Bible in ages. I feel like until I finish it I should be spending my reading time on it instead of something else.

The Simplicity Primer by Patrice Lewis. It has some good thoughts to help stay centered and focused on home, family, community and self-sufficiency.

Colorado Mom said...

Richard Paul Evans, 'The Walk', and 'Miles to Go'. A continuing story about who has everything the good life in our country can offer, and then in the span of one month looses everything. Even the love of his life. Then after becoming homeless and having no where to turn, he gathers up what little that is left in his life that has any meaning, puts it and some essentials into a backpack, and sets off to walk the longest route possible across this country. These first two books were SO interesting, that I read them both in the same day. Best part? The story continues.... Spring of 2012.
