2-for-1 Moving Sale – No Let-Up!

The orders keep coming and coming in response to our special promotion prompted by our looming office move. Many thanks to those who’ve responded, but please, don’t let up. There’s nothing the minions working within the deep recesses of NR’s Department of Ancillary Services can’t handle, so keep it coming folks. Here, as a reminder, is what we’re offering. You can get both the Original and Volume Two editions of The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature (ideal gifts for kids ages 10 and up—order here) for just $29.95. Or you can pick up the Original and Volume Two editions of The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories (perfect for new and beginning readers, and for parents who are seeking wholesome stories to read to the wee ones as a prelude to the sweetest of dreams—order here), again for only $29.95. And then there’s the beautiful boxed set of Howard Pyle’s The Wonder Clock and Pepper & Salt—two gorgeous books that were retailing for $45.00, but are now available to you for only $29.95 (order here). OK, that’s more like “2-for-1.5,” but Pyle’s books are spectacular (you must get this set!). All these books make great gifts, so please do your Christmas shopping now—the more you buy, the less we’ll have to haul.
