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…

  8. Joshua on January 30, 2008 at 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?



  9. Ryan on January 30, 2008 at 9:22 am

    My favourite store is NCIX.com for computer parts.



  10. Mikel on January 30, 2008 at 9:24 am

    emusic.com, by a landslide, and the only online store I use really since moving north (except for reading reviews). Thanks for the contest!



  22. Canadian Dream on January 30, 2008 at 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).

  62. Traciatim on January 30, 2008 at 2:48 pm

    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.



  63. linda on January 30, 2008 at 2:56 pm

    my favourite one is: amazon.ca.

  65. Robert hof on January 30, 2008 at 3:17 pm

    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 :)



  66. Christine on January 30, 2008 at 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.



  67. lifes too short on January 30, 2008 at 3:19 pm

  68. Rob again on January 30, 2008 at 3:22 pm

    Favourite online store? costco.ca

    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 :)



  69. Brad Davis on January 30, 2008 at 3:27 pm

    Great searching? digikey.ca

    My favorite online store is the brip blap a-store. Oh, wait, I meant amazon.com :)

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



  107. Mark @ TheLocoMono on January 31, 2008 at 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.



  108. newinvestor on January 31, 2008 at 12:27 am

    Favorite online store is amazon.ca



  109. nyss on January 31, 2008 at 1:45 am

    Ebay.ca….thanks!!



  115. FatboyJim on January 31, 2008 at 1:43 pm

    I gotta go with http://www.amazon.com. Buying from Canada before Christmas gave me quite the discount due to the foreign exchange rate. And free shipping is pretty hot.
