"Pick Another Check Out Lane Honey" Book Review

On my quest to learn couponing I've read two books so far. The first was written by "Coupon Mom" who was featured on Oprah, but I wasn't that happy with the book. I also felt some of what she wrote about was bit dated for the current coupon climate. So I decided to read the "Krazy Coupon Lady" book, "Pick Another Checkout Lane Honey". If you watch TLC's "Extreme Couponers" she was on it, along with her co-auther and friend. Together they have written an awesome book.
This is a great book for beginners, and really even for someone who's been doing this for awhile. They covers absolutely anything a couponer needs to know. From helping you find your coupons, tips for your stock-pile, and helping you through checkout and grumpy checkers. They also have a section to help with your finances. It covers the basics really, but it is a well written chapter. If I had any complaint with the book, it's only that sometimes her writing was a bit perky for my tastes. That's really a literary issue though, and doesn't have any bearing on the content of the book.
I loved this book so much I decided to have a special giveaway with it! For this giveaway to happen two things have to be done first.
1. The Kansas Coupons Facebook page must hit 100 fans. We're already at 83, so that shouldn't take two long.
2. If you want to be entered to win you will have to leave a comment ON THIS POST, not the facebook page.
When all that is done I will randomly choose 2 people from the comments to win a book. I ordered 2 books, so 2 people will win from this.
