NOTE THIS POST IS OLD AND THIS SALE IS NO LONGER GOING ON. BUT RATHER THAN DELETE THE POST, I’M LEAVING IT HERE TO GIVE SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR BOOKS THAT FOLKS MAY FIND USEFUL. THEY DO POP UP ON SALE NOW AND THEN.
Ironically, we don’t actually eat “paleo” in that we haven’t sworn off grains or dairy, as most eating paleo/primal do. (And, yes, there are “differences” between the two labels, but that’s a discussion for another time. For the moment I’m going to somewhat lump them together because I think this will apply to folks interested in either, plus all those who aren’t necessarily ready to take the plunge but would like to learn more!)
But, that said, I do find that after all that I’ve read in the past years, it’s hard (for me) to ignore the basic concepts of paleo eating which would be to eat as our ancestors did. The subtleties and potential arguments come in from whether one means our ancestors, as in…maybe our great grandparents? or our ancestors, as in the cavemen that preceded us a very long time ago.
My first approach to almost anything I might be interested in, of course, is to read a book. And aren’t libraries great for that! But I also really love to own books, and today Amazon is having some amazing sales on Kindle versions of an entire host of books on Paleo eating. While several of them boast many gorgeous photos, which makes the hard copy a desirable option, it’s just hard to beat the prices — many are 99¢ and the most expensive (due to large file size) are still only $2.99.
A few that I’ve just bought and am looking forward to reading are…
One of the first on my list is The Ancestral Table, Traditional Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle, by Russ Crandall. I’ve followed his blog for a while and although I’d love to own a hard-copy of this for the photos, I’ll happily take a dollar-ninety-nine version for now!
You can click on either of those book covers and go right to the Amazon page for the book, or you can do what I did when I first heard about this a few days ago and go to Buck Books where all the Paleo Books on sale today are featured. I also signed up for their mailing list to get notices of other books in the future that Amazon is featuring, usually for just 99¢. (You don’t have to sign up to see all the Paleo specials…that link takes you right to the page showing them all.)
This particular sale ends at midnight tonight, so if you want to take advantage of the sale prices, act fast!
