My new book

A few weeks ago I received an advertising for a bird book. This bird book was different. Although it did talk about bird behavior and bird types the basic idea was about building projects for the birds and your gardens. I wanted this book immediately. The advertised price was 4 payments of $8.99 each and shipping of $12.00. So approximately $50.00 for the book! I was not eager to pay that amount. Maybe Amazon.com carried the book. Sure enough! I found it, same author, same publisher and it was only $12.70! The only difference was that the one on Amazon was paperback. So what....... Yahoo. And I got free shipping because I ordered another book too.

My new book arrived yesterday. I love it! There are so many cool ideas for bird houses, feeders, homemade suet/seed recipes, water features. Most projects are made with natural items. I can't wait to buy a coconut to make a "coco cabana" feeder, or hang up pines cones smeared with peanut butter and cornmeal. This is so fun!

That was quick thinking!!I once made a mistake like that and paid 40 bucks for a book on running when I could get it for $15.00 on ebay!!!
Looking forward to your "finds"

Thanks for the tip! I think this is the perfect book for my wife. (and I'll find something to get myself since with a $25 order you get free shipping!)

I agree with you- for fifty bucks, it better come with birds included! Congrats on your smart shopping. I love a good deal, don't you?
