Win ALA award-winning audiobooks for your library
Unshelved strip for 3/5/2015

Dayton, TN

Just a quick note to say that I'll be giving my program Cartooning in the Digital Age at 7pm on March 16 in Dayton, TN at the Bryan College Library, second floor. This talk is open to the public, so if you live nearby I hope you'll come and learn about how I ended up making a living cartooning, and how maybe you can too. I will also have for sale a small pile of Unshelved and NIH books and an even smaller pile of Card Catalog USB Drives.

You can see a complete schedule of our upcoming talks & appearances at our Talks & Appearances page.

Free Unshelved Ebooks for Libraries

Unshelved Ebooks

Thanks to our amazing Kickstarter backers, we promised to allow libraries to circulate DRM-free ebooks of the eleven Unshelved collections free to their patrons. We are now ready to do this!

Complete details, including a simple license agreement and a list of the ways libraries can circulate our ebooks, are available here.

We are especially excited to announce that Mackin is the first library ebooks vendor to agree to distribute the Unshelved collections. With MackinVIA, it's dead simple to load the books into your ebook library for circulation. Click here to find out how.

And if you have an idea about how we can make this simpler or see an issue we need to clarify, please let us know.

P.S. Just want to buy our ebooks for yourself? You can do that today too!

P.P.S. Prefer the old-fashioned paper kind? We have those too!
