  1. The winner has chosen his book
    I got a neat letter from Chris in MN, who says he would like to use TALKING MONEY to reevaluate his finances. So that leaves

    7 Habits for Families
    Eyes on the Prize and
    You Don’t Have to Be Rich (I have two copies of this so if two people want this, I can send them both).
