Coming this Spring, it's Volume 2 of Lulu Eightball!

More info to come, but here's a sneak peak of the cover.

Reading Projects & Clubs

Tonight is the first meeting of the year for Reading Club: the Year of Magazines, Zines and Journals. We'll be discussing The Believer #50, at POP, 3620 Falls Rd, 7pm.

Also, and I'm a little late on this, we'll be sponsoring largehearted boy's awesome Reading Project for another year. As always, there'll be a coupon for a 15% discount on whatever he's reading for that month!

I'm at the end of Day 3 of not smoking.

Reading Club 2008 - Periodicals

We're getting a bit of a late start with the Shank Reading Club this year, but that's because we were waiting for the The Believer to come in.

Yes, this will be a year of periodicals - magazines, journals, zines, etc!

Since periodicals are more timely (meaning they're usually late), we'll only be announcing each month's reading that month. All issues will be 10% off for the month, unless otherwise noted.

Online customers can enter the code SHANK001 in their online order form Coupon Field to get 10% off this month's title.

It's the 50th issue of the Believer! For this month's discussion meeting (always the last Wednesday of the month over at POP at 7pm) we're having a pizza party, pizza provided by McSweeneys, as well as a raffle for back issues and prizes.

2007 Bestsellers

Benn's compiled our bestsellers of 2007.

Why are lists so fascinating?
