Wish Me Luck by Rebekah Joy Anast - I read the first book in this series, Holy Cow, last year and really enjoyed it and learned a lot from it. (See my post here.) This book continues the story of a family's living off grid on an Indian reservation. I find it fascinating to read about how people do that. This book's story focuses on a mystery and scandal regarding GMO's (genetically modified organisms). I already didn't like GMO's in my food and what I learned in this book, totally reinforced that. Overall, though I liked the story in the first book much better. Both books have recipes in the back and additional information for topics discussed.

I am a huge fan of Mary Hunt and have read most of her books. I was a subscriber to her newsletter "Cheapskate Monthly" which later became "Debt Proof Living" for many years. She has written a lot of books including books about teaching children about money, debt proofing your holidays, etc. Her book Debt-Proof Living is probably the best for someone wanting to learn to be better with money. She has a marvelous system for saving up for things called "The Freedom Account." I highly recommend anything by Mary Hunt.
If you are looking for TONS of really practical ways to cut money, then get a copy of The Complete Tightwad Gazette by Amy Dycyczyn. The book is a compilation of the author's subscription newsletter that was published for about six years in the 1990s. I read the book shortly after publication and still have tips pop in my head at times. Some of the tips really irk me. Like reusing baggies. I hate washing baggies out and then drying them. I refused to do that for years. But now I am dutifully washing baggies and setting them out to dry. Sigh. Saving money in lots of little ways really does add up.
