Unshelved comic strip for 10/9/2007

Whither T-Shirts?

Many of you have been asking where the Frequently Asked Questions and Read Irresponsibly shirts are. If all goes well I should be updating our store tonight, along with a few other select items. Thank you for your patience.

Partners West

This week's Unshelved is made possible by Partners West, a full line, trade wholesaler for retail sales with a growing niche in the public library market. They say:

Unlike larger wholesalers, we are able to offer personal service and the opportunity to shop our warehouse. Many of our current library customers like to take advantage of this convenience to use special grants, Friends of the Library contributions, or to clear the end of the year budget.

P.S. If you'd like to reach out to our 40,000 readers by sponsoring Unshelved, send us mail and tell why you think your products or services would be valuable or interesting to our readers.

The Fall Line Arriveth

After much fiddling with fonts, colors, materials, and websites, we're finally ready to unveil the 2007 Unshelved Fall line, such as it is.

It starts with Frequently Asked Questions, as I know many of you are. Available in a unisex green shirt and a fabulous women's fitted royal purple.

Then we've got the Contains Printed Matter messenger bag, the first of its kind in our store. We love this hardy and handsome canvas bag and we think you will too. Fill it with books and it becomes self-descriptive. Also available in a t-shirt. After all, you are what you read.

Bearing a slogan that will shortly appear in an upcoming Unshelved comic strip, the My Safeword is "Ow!" shirt is the last word in last words.

Our last new t-shirt is Read Irresponsibly, which we certainly hope you do. This shirt is priced to sell, but you don't have to pay for it at all. Just buy any two shirts and get one of these absolutely free!

All of these items will ship before the end of the month, many even sooner. Order early and beat the holiday rush, which tends to eat up popular sizes.
