I spill, and pass the savings on to you

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Village Bookstore in Grand Rapids Saturday for the final book signing event for “Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range.” I’ll still be doing talks about the book and will be happy to sign your copy if you want, but I’m not going to do another formal signing like this until my next book comes out.

Would you like to know why?

In an incident involving one of my many unexplained spastic gestures a veeeeery small amount of coffee splashed from the tiiiiiny little hole in the coffee cup’s spill guard and gently moistened the side of four books. The coffee did not penetrate into the books and the stains are very, very light. Almost, but not quite, imperceptible.

Soooo. Wouldn’t it be fun if you bought one of these books and then I wrote an entertaining description of the stain and its origins inside the book? It might be the wittiest thing I’ve ever written, damn near better than what’s in the book itself (but not quite!).

Contact me if you’re interested. I’m serious. These will be hot collector’s items. The pleasing aroma of coffee makes any reading experience more pleasant. I’ll shave a couple bucks off the price and give you free shipping. You can’t beat this deal. My contact info is up above. First come, first serve.
