FRI 11/21: McSweeney's Online Sale

I love books as gifts, and I love witty essays on McSweeney's. It's more than books too: T-shirts, arty notecards, peculiar/arty DVDs. They have the CD from Nick Hornby's "Songbook" for $2. Most of the stuff is half-off, but the sale on lasts through today, 11/21.

Give random, cheap lit to your friends and family this "holiday season"!

From the email:


You feel poor. We feel poor. Let's feel poor together. This week only, almost everything is half-price. Escape the holiday rush and cross every name off your list in one cheap swoop.

- Angsty cousin? All Known Metal Bands.
- New fan? The Better of McSweeney's.
- Paleontologist in the family? "What Happens in La Brea Tar Pits Stays in La Brea Tar Pits" t-shirt.
- Newlyweds spending their first winter together? The Secret Language of Sleep.
- Michael Cera fan? Wholphin No. 6.

And so on — we've got all your bases covered, and it's all excessively discounted, all right here.

Want more? How about this: if you spend over $60, you get a FREE copy of either Nick Hornby's new collection Shakespeare Wrote for Money or Michael Chabon's Maps and Legends. All you have to do is spend $60 (not including shipping) at our online store; then, at the bottom left of the first page of checkout, find the field for Promo Code. In this field, type in the code for the book you'd like:
