Book Giveaway: Retire Rich from Real Estate

Sphinx Publishing and Dr. Marc Andersen have agreed to give away a copy of their book "Retire Rich from Real Estate" to a lucky reader of Million Dollar Journey.  Earlier, I wrote a glowing review of the real estate investing book.  Here is a snippet:

..Although the book is based on investing in the U.S, the lessons provided in the book are relevant for real estate investors everywhere.  "Retire Rich from Real Estate" is just that, it explains from start to finish on how on to successfully invest in rentals. 

It's not one of those get rich quick type books, the opposite really.  The book focuses on the rental real estate investing strategy and how lucrative it can be for the long run…

  • Joshua January 30, 2008, 9:08 am

    My favourite online store is iTunes; it makes me feel better to buy a few albums there so I don’t feel quite so guilty about the massive amount of music I get “elsewhere”. Does it make it better if you *know* you are a hypocrite?

  • Ryan January 30, 2008, 9:22 am

  • Canadian Dream January 30, 2008, 10:54 am

    I’ll have to say Chapter.ca is my weak spot. You really can’t get cheaper books (other than the library).

    My favorite would have to be ncix.com . . . though vision.gnb.ca is a good one, though not technically a store it lets you search all the libraries for books so that you can go to your local library and order books in.

    Million Dollar Journey is fast becoming my favourite blog. As a result of reading this blog, I’m now getting an SM mortgage (thanks to the Ed Rempel SM mortgage referral service), and am meeting Ed Rempel and his gang of merry men (and women) this very evening.

    Keep up the good work…. and let me win this book…. I just bought a triplex and need to figure out how to be a landlord :)

  • Christine January 30, 2008, 3:17 pm

    Can’t believe nobody’s mentioned it: zappos.com! I ordered a pair of rainboots from them in the fall and it was an great shopping experience.

    I have to say that this is quickly becoming a must-read blog for me. As a direct result of reading here, I’m getting an SM mortgage, and coincidentally, am going to an Ed Rempel seminar this very evening.

    I’m looking forward to winning and reading this book – just bought a triplex and need some advice on dealing with tenants :)

    …although eBay’s a lot more fun to browse around…

  • Mark @ TheLocoMono January 31, 2008, 12:23 am

    I am proud to say I have never shopped on ebay. I do use Amazon from time to time but never faithfully.

    I do want to say that http://www.campmor.com is actually my favorite online store.

    It is truly a niche online store geared towards outdoor enthusiastics.

    Terrific prices even if you have to pay shipping, you can often end up saving more than enough to cover shipping and still get a discount. If anything, I buy my clothes from this store every single time. Never from Amazon or eBay. The only thing I buy from Amazon is books or just books really.
