Buy a Book for a Soldier

This week, when you buy a copy of The First Assassin, you can also have one sent to a U.S. soldier at no cost to yourself. It’s even possible to direct your gift to a branch of the armed services or a particular deployment. Details here.

An e-mail from a reader who took advantage of the offer yesterday:

I’d like the military copy to go to a U.S. Army GI in Afghanistan, if possible. Sentimental reasons I guess. Forty years ago that was the uniform I was wearing in a very alien place very far away. Books are good. It’s a fine thing you are doing. I was going to buy Assassin anyway and now I feel good even before reading it. Thank you.
