    Thanks for letting me peak at Chapter 1. [I’ve minimalised my Mac so much that, by choice, I don’t use Flash any more so I couldn’t read it online :-) The process required to be able to download it as a .pdf has put me off scribd.com for life though.]

    I just bought the ebook – and I was wondering; is there a way to perhaps gift this book to someone?

    Because I sure know some people that could simplify their lives :-)

    I’ve loved reading your blog, and I’m so excited to start reading this new book (just purchased it, yay!! And the kids are at school, so no interruptions!) but am making myself wait until I drop off some no-longer-needed clothing, books, and furniture to my local Goodwill first. I just got my youngest on board with minimalism when he finally realized that if he had less “stuff”, then he wouldn’t have to waste his Saturdays dusting/cleaning it all and putting it away. You could actually see the LED go off when it clicked – so funny!

    Hey, I love you blog and I have been reading it for the pst several months. I was wondering, would you guys mind expanding your feed subscription options to include email besides just RSS? It would be so much easier if I got an email everytime there was a new post published instead of having to check back here now and then. A good, free service for this is feedburner.
