Second: see that tab at the top of the page that says "Open Specials Panel"? Give it a click. That banner that slides its way down is telling you the truth:
FREE STANDARD SHIPPING TO THE U.S. ON ALL ONLINE ORDERS (and 50% OFF Air Mail to the rest of the world) THROUGH JANUARY 31, 2008!
Just select the "FREE Standard" or USPS "50% OFF" shipping option when you go through our shopping cart. We'll be running periodic specials like this, so keep checking that Specials Panel from time to time. (And don't forget to click "Close Specials Panel" when you're done looking at it.)
See you again soon with another New Website Feature of the Day!
Starting Monday (Dec. 24th) we will be conducting our end of the year inventory. You will still be able to place orders with us through our website or over the phone, but we will be be unable to ship out any orders until the inventory is complete, which should be sometime during the first week of Jan. '08.
Please keep this in mind when selecting any of our Rush shipping methods. We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to serving you in 2008!
Need some last-minute stocking stuffers? We're here to help. Here's a selection of our tiniest books; there's something for everyone, and they're all affordably priced! (Plus they're all hardcovers, so they won't get bent out of shape if you cram them down into the toe and then pile a bunch of clementines on top.)
And hey, how about a sweet little deal: order all 3 for just $25 (that's $2.95 off the combined cover prices) from now until Christmas. (Note: If you order off the website, the discount won't be reflected in your shopping cart/order confirmation; please state the offer in the comments section and we'll process your order to include the discount. You can also call in your order to 1-800-657-1100.)
Collects the best of Coleman's tales of true crime and cultural antiheroes, starring an opium-addicted con man, a hobo prostitute, a serial killer/rapist, the Boston Strangler, and institutions that perpetuate human suffering. Ho ho ho!
Largely wordless and cunningly rendered, this little book is sure to touch most folks. An old widower visits his departed wife's gravesite. Little does he know that what the day holds for him will result in this being his last lonely Saturday. Both sweet and bitter, realistic and fantasic, this heartwarming story of love and love lost is told in a beautiful two-color, red and yellow palette.
This charming, clever little book contains two simultaneous stories: in one, a wandering ear mite searches for a home; in the other, a lonely ape escapes from the circus. The two stories intersect for a "happy" ending. Suitable for all ages!
