Good news for those of you looking for distractions to keep you from getting started on the mashed potatoes too early: The Thanksgiving Weekend E-Book Bundle is available now! I had some confusion inititally about when to open this up for purchasing, because as you all know, I am a Permananetly Confused Person due to the care and feeding of small people and the associated lack of sleep. But it looks like it is okay to let you all go ahead and download now! There are e-books and downloadable magazines from thirteen different authors, including everything from hands-on activities, crafts and printables to mindful parenting resources. Very good stuff.
A note about mobile devices: it doesn't appear to work to download the bundle from a phone, so you'll want to have access to a computer when you download. Also, if you would like to send the bundle to someone as a gift, simply purchase as usual, and then forward the email from e-junkie with the download link inside to the recipient of your choice.
The time for the bundle has come and gone friends... But, hey! Don't worry- you can certainly still find the individual books included by visiting the author's sites through the links below.
Here is a little reminder from Cathy and Melitsa, who organized this great collaboration, of what you will find inside:
