In just 5 days time I’ll be boarding a flight to Auckland, New Zealand after 5.5 years away from my homeland. That in itself is exciting beyond words.

But I have just one problem.

I seem to have accumulated a shit load of great business books and I just can’t take them all home. Since I now have the most well travelled new iPad in the world and books to read on my Kindle I simply do not need to cart these heavy around when you could be enjoying them instead.

So I’m giving some of them away. A few are brand new that I purchased and haven’t even read! Others I’ve devoured but they still look spankin’ hot and others were gifts that I’ve enjoyed and want to pass on.

Either way if you’re not fussy and want to receive one of these books absolutely free just make sure you leave a comment below as to the book you want and why. Oh plus you have to tweet this post in order to be eligible to win – pretty simple (and I will be checking my Twitter stream).

I’ll be announcing the 5 winners on Thursday 4th of August so I can post them before I leave. Let’s get cracking.

I was one of just a select group of bloggers who won two copies of this awesome book from one of my fave bloggers Amber Naslund and Jay Baer when they launched it earlier in the year.
