The Best Book kickstarter

Holiday 2005

We're excited to announce that the 2005 Unshelved holiday season has begun. We know that our fans depend on us for unique giving opportunities, and we think we've come through for another year, with edgy new stuff, classic old stuff, and ways to save money at practically every turn. Please have a look!


First of all - the money part. We're running three promotions this fall:

  • Buy any three shirts get $5 off each shirt. That means your third shirt is almost free, so don't miss out on this one.
  • Buy any museum or framed print and get $10 off each additional museum or framed print. We even have a list of greatest hits so you can find your favorites fast.
  • And as always, free shipping on orders over $40 (US/Canada) or $60 (rest of world).

And without further ado, the stuff we're selling!


The What happens in the library stays in the library t-shirt makes a bold statement about civil liberties in one of our most sacred institutions. Or it's just funny. Especially accompanied by the What happens in storytime stays in storytime shirt, in both adult's and kid's sizes



We've also brought back the What Would Dewey Do? t-shirt, in an attractive new Spruce color. This is our most- requested shirt, and we admit it - we missed it too. The Book Club shirt is still available in both men's and women's styles. And we stocked up on the entire Library Raid line - shirts, jackets, and hat. Just add sunglasses and boots and your uniform is complete. We've got some Read Responsibly book bags and even a few Unshelved hats kicking around at clearance prices.


Of course an Unshelved gift basket wouldn't be complete without our three collections - Unshelved Volume 1, What Would Dewey Do?, and the new Library Mascot Cage Match, available together for only $40. And select a few favorite prints to adorn the walls of you and/or your giftees.

If any of this sounds appealing please consider ordering sooner rather than later to make sure your goods are in stock and get sent in time. We're not a giant ecommerce megastore, and an always-full inventory and lightning-fast turnaround time just isn't in the cards for us. But we do produce high-quality goods that bring smiles every time, and we appreciate your business.

P.S. The store is right here!
