Joybilee Farm is Celebrating!
On Thursday Joybilee Farm’s Facebook Page made 5K fans. This is an exciting achievement that we’ve been working on since June 2011 and we didn’t do it alone. Our friends and fans on Facebook shared the daily free Kindle posts and shared our blog articles to help us reach the 5K milestone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness in sharing my posts. I am very grateful.
To celebrate we planned a blog draw. In thinking about what would make you happy, and help you learn more self reliant skills for back yard homesteading, I was torn between giving away the newest Kindle model — The Kindle Paperwhite or giving you a solar charger to help you be more self reliant with your electronic devices. I decided on the Kindle Paperwhite because frankly, I think its the brightest, and easiest to read Kindle that Amazon has come up with.
Many of you told me that you are reading the hundreds of free Homestead and Homeschooling Kindle books that you’ve downloaded for free from the Joybilee Farm blog and the Joybilee Farm Facebook page, on your computer, phone, or tablet, using the free Kindle app. You’ve been wanting a Kindle of your own, but you have other priorities for your budget right now. Others of you already have a Kindle of your own. But I’m sure even those of you with your own Kindle can think of a use for another one — a gift, a back up Kindle to hold your prepping books, a Kindle to read while the grand kids are using your Kindle Fire to play one of the free daily Kindle Fire apps.
The new Kindle Paperwhite has a bright white screen with dark print, giving the strongest print contrast of any Kindle. It has a special light that allows you to read easily in bright sunlight, and in the dark, no reading light required. It will hold up to 1,100 Kindle books. Plus it has a built in wifi so that you can download books on the go. Do you want one yet?

This draw is 100% sponsored by Joybilee Farm and our other blogs Wearing Woad, and Turning For Profit. Amazon is not providing the Kindle Paperwhite for this draw. Just so you know. We are doing this because you are the best fans in the world, and if we could give everyone of you a Kindle we would. But since we can’t — we’ve chosen to give one of you this awesome prize. You can thank me by sharing, ‘liking’, commenting, and following, to help us grow this awesome community.
If we make it to 10K fans on the Joybilee Farm Facebook page before the end of the giveaway on November 16th at midnight PST, we’ll do a second draw for a small solar charger to charge your small electronic devices, and we’ll have two winners.
Thanks for entering. You can come back every day, share my Joybilee Farm Free Homestead Kindle Book post of the day, and get another entry. The more times you share, the greater your chance of winning the Kindle Paperwhite. Good Luck!
