Unshelved comic strip for 1/17/2011

Congratulations Nancy Pearl

At ALA Midwinter Gene and I were lucky enough to attend a special dinner celebrating Nancy Pearl, Library Journal's Librarian of the Year. Nancy is a dear friend, a national treasure, and a famed lingerie model. To celebrate her new award we are putting our Nancy Pearl T-Shirt on sale until the end of January. ¡Viva El Libro!

P.S. I never get tired of watching our interview with Nancy at BEA last year.

T-Shirt Price Warning

Did you know cotton prices are at a 140-year high? Neither did we until our t-shirt supplier informed us that prices are going up - way up. So much so that we are going to have to raise prices for all our shirts starting February 1. So consider this, if not a sale, then at least fair warning.

Free Teen Reads Poster

This week's sponsor is our good friend Talia at Macmillan Library. She's giving away free Teen Reads Posters to US-based librarians and educators. They're a great way to create excitement about upcoming books, and the price is right!
