Liz Weston wants to give you her books.

9751250Personal finance writer Liz Weston is giving away two of her best-selling books to five lucky winners. Maybe one of them will be you, if you enter the drawing before Friday.

Each will receive both “The 10 Commandments of Money: Survive and Thrive in the New Economy” and “Your Credit Score: How to Improve the 3-Digit Number That Shapes Your Financial Future.”

Head over to this post on AskLizWeston.com to sign up. All you have to do is leave a comment on the post.

Newbies take note: Since Liz moderates all comments, it may take a little while for yours to show up if you’ve never left one before. Be patient.

The winners will be selected on Friday evening. Watch your inbox because Liz, like me, is a tough-love kind of gal: If she doesn’t hear back from you by noon PST on Monday, she’ll draw another winner.

Frugal tip: One or both books would make a good graduation gift.

    Thanks Donna!

  2. Thanks for posting this, Donna! You are a comrade in arms in the financial freedom fight, lol 🙂

  3. Can I give a book instead of gathering all of the junk that he needs to go away? That would be easier!

    I really appreciate the financial life information. As women we get so wrapped up in the daily adventure we forget to stick our head out and look at the long term big picture. I particularly would like to get these financial books or something similar for my 15 year old daughter. She’s reading the Odyssey in school, a great book but I’d rather she was reading Liz Weston. The Odyssey and all that classical education literature does not prepare you for a woman’s Odyssey through the perils of today’s world.

      Preach it! Although I think she should be reading both.
      And I agree that women tend to be socialized to take care of others vs. thinking about their own well-being (financial or otherwise). Some get unpleasant surprises later on, as evidenced by a few of the comments on that Mary Hunt book giveaway. Encourage your daughter to put her own oxygen mask on first.

        What would you recommend as a good all around starter book for teens? Sof does know that life does not always go as planned and that you need to be resourceful yet she is not a lover of reading. Her reading time competes with iTunes and a host of other distractions so I need to choose wisely.

          Look for a copy of Zac Bissonnette’s “How to Be Richer, Smarter and Better-Looking Than Your Parents.” He was only 23 or so when he wrote it (and it was his second book…!), so she might connect with it better than with a book written by an older author.
