Order Those Books – They’Ll Arrive by Christmas Eve or Earlier!

Have those NR books (our acclaimed kid’s titles – The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature and The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories – plus Choosing the Right College and We Will Prevail and Florence King’s STET, Damnit!) shipped via UPS ground (it’s only $5) and no matter where you are in the good old Continental US of A, your package will arrive plenty of time ahead of Santa. I did a little scenario-ing on the UPS site today: Packages shipped from NYC today will arrive by Thursday, December 23, in the Northwest (Seattle) or Southwest (Phoenix); by Wednesday (Dec. 22) in Dallas, LA, or Denver; by Tuesday (Dec. 21) in the Midwest and South (St. Loueey, Chicago, and Miami); by Monday (Dec. 20) in the far reaches of New England (Bangor); and tomorrow (Friday, December 17!) in Boston.

By the way, about our children’s titles, here’s what the great Midge Decter says

“Treasure” is the right word to use for these three collections of children’s literature. Indeed, reading through the National Review treasuries is a happy reminder of the time when children were respected as creatures capable of both real thoughts and real imaginings rather than, as they so much are today, no more than a cohort of small and conventionally attitudinizing adults. Indeed, with the Treasuries in tow, parents and children are both apt to begin anticipating bedtime as a whole new adventure.

Right on Midge! And you should get right on our order page to get these and all of our acclaimed books in time for Christmas.

Florida’s Shame, and Ours

Conspiracy theories are bad for civic life. So are conspiracies. I wonder if there is one mentally normal adult walking these fruited plains -- even the most craven, abject, brain-dead partisan Democrat -- who believes that what has been going on in Broward County, Fla., is anything other than a brazen ...
