Unshelved comic strip for 8/10/2009

Free shipping on books until Aug 31

Gene didn't think I did a good enough job letting people know that there's free shipping on all our books until August 31 including, of course, our newest collection Reader's Advisory. We're also both signing all books and I'm drawing a doodle in each one. We'll even personalize them if you tell us whose name to write.

For my part I'm glad to see so many of you are taking advantage of our book bundles. Even if you already have a few of our books you can still save money and end up with a couple of signed books to give as presents. And you can save even more money if you add one of our two bags. Hurry up - time's a wasting!

Goats: Infinite Typewriters

Unshelved is sponsored this week by Jon Rosenberg, author of Infinite Typewriters, a Goats collection. Jon made the surreally wonderful book club of Jonathan Livingston Seagull for us last month. If you liked that, you'll love Goats. And if really didn't, you really won't.

Check our NPR's recent review and then order the book for your collection!

Golden Oldies

One week every summer we recycle some classic Unshelved strips. Usually it's because I'm travelling or on vacation, but this time it's because I'm determined to get ahead of schedule by drawing nonstop the entire week. Wish me luck, and enjoy one of my favorite sequences from a couple of years ago!
