Happy Valentine's Day! I hope all you lovers out there were out lovin'.
We've been active around here lately. Tim is heading down to Austin for Staple, our store continues to evolve, we've got lots of bright ideas for the future, and we're adding lots of new titles on the website!
If you haven't read the new CIA Makes Science Fiction Unexciting yet, you should. It's creepy. It's disturbing. It's angering. Some parts are downright sickening. But it's also exciting, enticing, and undoubtedly interesting. It contains minimal speculation and maximal research. Much of the content is admitted by government officials and operatives themselves. And the book compiles it together to let you see more of the big picture. And it's not a pretty one. Not only does it bring un-skewed history to light, it's a time capsule that you can send to friends and family to provoke thoughts and conversation. Even if they don't want to believe most of it, it's provocative so they can't help reading it anyway. If you've read the original zines, you still want this, because it's all been updated.
Stay safe out there!

Just so you know, we've got a lot of super great new titles! Who's excited about Railroad Semantics #2!!?
If not that, how bout the new edition of Mostly True!
Beyond The Music is Joe Biel's new book, a really great one for anyone interested in the Punk "Scene" or the DIY ethics it brings with it.
And of course, we can't forget about Everyday Bicycling, Elly Blue's know-it-all book about cycling in any and every situation, a super great guide to get someone who might just be getting into bicycling, or even the bicycling fanatics! :)
Holy Cow! As I was typing this we just got another one in! The People's Apocalypse! This one looks super interesting!
If your into that whole Thanksgiving thing, these are all things to be thankful for!
If your into that whole Christmas thing, any one of these would make great gifts!
Or, you could gift one to someone on Nov. 13th for World Kindness Day.
You'll also have to stock up on books to read for Stay At Home Because You Are Well Day at the end of the month. Book Lover's Day doesn't have to end on Nov. 4th, it can last all year!
I can't even keep up around here. I'm going to have to start reading faster...
