McSweeney's Book Sale

For the next two days, McSweeney’s, the independent publisher started by Dave Eggers in the '90s, is having a sale on just about everything available in their online store. Including deals on their current books in print, McSweeney's lit mag, The Believer magazine, and Woolphin DVD anthologies. Good stuff.

Where else can you pick up a copy of Michael Chabon's Maps and Legends or Chris Adrian's The Children’s Hospital for five bucks? You'll also find books by Nick Hornby, Stephen Dixon, Deb Olin Unferth, Robert Coover, and Mr. Eggers. No, I don't work for McSweeney's. I've just been following their progress since they started.

And who doesn't want to support the indies? Now's the time to take a chance on an author you've only read good things about. Or to pick up a book from a writer you've never even heard of. Almost everything's $15 and under. Sale ends Wednesday, March 12.

Good luck. Buy early, buy often.
