Here is the latest map showing where our books sales are happening.

| January 12, 2010

Being from British Columbia, the big thing on most people’s minds is the upcoming Olympics in Vancouver, set to begin in exactly one month. Up here in Slumberland (about 5 hours from Vancouver) things are a bit more subdued, almost lethargic in some cases. In fact, when I asked Buck Pincher what his favorite Olympic […]

| November 5, 2009

¬† Yes, the day we’ve all been waiting for has come…on November 5th, a large transport truck backed up to my driveway and a cheerful driver named Peter unloaded boxes and boxes of books with his self-powered pallet jack.
