Buy a book

I often receive emails about buying my books; generally, folks want to know which outlet offers me the biggest cut, which I really appreciate.

My preference is always that people support their local bookseller. In my life, I have seen time and time again how local, independent booksellers give back to their communities, becoming not merely a place to buy books, but also a place to gather and have important and sometimes just plain ole entertaining discussions. So, if you have a local, independent bookseller, please inquire with them about my books.

If this is not an option for you, I humbly suggest you support one of my local booksellers, such as The Galaxy Bookshop in Hardwick, Bear Pond Books in Montpelier, Phoenix Books in Burlington and Essex, Northshire Books in Manchester, or MainStreet BookEnds in Warner, NH. All of these booksellers have been enormously supportive of my work and any of them will be happy to mail one or all of my books. Of course, if you have a preference for a different book seller, by all means, buy from them.

There is always the option of ordering directly from the publishers of my books. Links here, here, and here.

Finally, there is always Amazon. It’s not my preferred option, which is why it comes last, but the world is an imperfect place, and I recognize it may be the option that works best for you.

No matter where you buy my books, I greatly appreciate your support. Thank you.

  1. I was in Barnes and Noble tonight with my daughter already semi frustrated about the weeks events and stared right down the face of Outside Magazine. The caption of best towns caught my eye and I thought well, why not? Was curious to see how many Colorado towns made it this year. I gotta visit Duluth someday, seriously, outdoor enthusiasts mecca for sure. So when all of the towns were visited vicariously I turned the page to find, “We don’t need no education.” I kinda did a internal freak out like WHAT? What in a good way. You see, my daughter has not been to school at all this week and pretty much by conscious choice. She just started Middle school this year- 6th grade and I’ve gotta tell ya elementary school was horrible for her, for me, for the both of us. For many many reasons. 😦 I kinda like to pride myself on being an optimist realist so I don’t use the word horrible lightly. I have never once heard of the term unschooling. I really appreciate your article, I do believe in God and divinity and I really wasn’t feeling the typical homeschooling path. When I read a bit I said to myself well, I would definitely choose independent over the school curriculum at home, because what’s the point. And then fast forward to this evening at the bookstore and I’m like, ok somebody or something is trying to tell me something and I AM listening!! 😀 So here I am sitting before the computer at a little after 11 pm I realize it is probably 1 am for you over there in VT. I am asking for any advice, I don’t even know how to start. What I am thinking is I need to call the school principle tomorrow morning because I haven’t been in contact with her or anyone from the district this week, because honestly I didn’t know what to say to them. I had not yet figured anything out, I still haven’t really except that I like what I have read so far and am game. 🙂 Soooo, yep my email address is I am also on facebook under my name amber tilton and I live here in Loveland, Colorado at the present. Honestly I am willing to relocate, have been looking for a reason, so just throwing that out there. I need and want to know more thank you for your help and time, oh and while I was making my salad tonight and pulled out my Cabot cheese, in the back of my mind remembering that the farm is in Vermont I thought I wonder if he has any links or hookups with these people? Um, then I get on your webpage where the first thing I read is Cabot and I’m like wow, all the pieces of the puzzle are fitting, and I really like that. 🙂 If you read and want to respond to this before tomorrow I am just curious about how to go about starting everything up and taking her out of public school. I am also a bit nervous about the naysayers. I already told my mom how I was feeling and that wasn’t received too well. I am sure I will get more comfortable with it as I go along though, like anything. 🙂 Thank you honestly for your time in reading this. Have a GREAT day on the farm!

  2. We have a 3 1/2 year old child in Florida we cannot keep inside. If we let him he would sleep outside too. We have been looking into institutional schools here from Montessori to neighborhood “recommended” schools and the answer I got when asked, “what if he’s bored and can he move up a level, or go outside etc.” was always the same response….we are run by the state or the children follow a cirriculum set blah blah blah. I was not too happy to hear that again and again. My sister has and is home-schooling her four children and I never thought that would be an option for me as my husband was of the mind thought that she just wanted to “keep them home”. After sharing your article with him, he is finally on board as we are shifting our careers to a better life too!! We are hoping to relocate to our property in Colorado in the next two years and not wait for retirement to really start living life and even continuing to learn naturally ourselves. I cannot tell you the impact you have had on our little family and our lift path…..thank you. -T. Heminger

  3. Ben and Penny, your new book is fantastic. I received it Saturday afternoon and spent Sunday afternoon engrossed in it. A perfect way to recuperate from Saturday’s harvesting of turkeys. The pictures in the book are great. Among Penny’s many talents, photography is obviously one of the top ones.

  4. Hi Ben, Is there anywhere in Australia that sells your books in hardcopy? I’ve not been able to track it down yet, and would prefer local retailer to Amazon kindle version. Thanks 🙂

  5. Your link to your post on buying books on Amazon is actually broken, and I couldn’t find it elsewhere on your site… Could you link me, please? Curious to read your thoughts. 🙂
