Read Responsibly: The Book

We'd like to introduce you to our newest Unshelved collection Read Responsibly. We know a lot of you have been waiting for this, and it doesn't disappoint. At 136 pages it's the biggest, funniest, most colorful Unshelved book yet!

Of course there's a full year of Unshelved dailies like you've never seen them before, including the famous Pimp My Bookcart sequence that begat the now-famous contest. And there's a full year of full-color Unshelved Book Club featuring the best books ever written. Probably. But there's also never-published-on-the-web strips and features, including Bill's appreciation of the comic strip art of Gene Ambaum. All introduced with gentlemanly wit by Dave Kellett, creator of Sheldon and topped off with the most beautiful cover Bill's ever made, if he does say so himself.

Until July 31st you can preorder Read Responsibly at the Unshelved Store. It's $17.95 plus shipping, but if you order the entire five-book Unshelved library it's only $60 plus free shipping, saving you save over 25%! And as a special bonus Bill and Gene will sign and sketch every book sold between now and July 31st. You can pay by check, credit card, or PayPal, so don't delay! Operators are standing by!

P.S. Want to order this book for your library, book store, or comic shop? Sorry, you'll have to wait a little longer. We'll let you know when our distributor is accepting orders - promise.
