Hallo everybody!

1) BAD IDEA ALERT! HANK HOWARD, PIZZA DETECTIVE #1:

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a WEIRD SITUATION this week: the latest and greatest book to come out of BAD IDEA headquarters is HANK HOWARD PIZZA DETECTIVE and I can ONLY SELL IT TO YOU FOR ONE (1) DAY this week!

  • What does this mean? It means I can ONLY SELL IT TO YOU on WEDNESDAY, 12 MAY. Seriously, those are THE RULES as laid out from the fine folks at BAD IDEA.
  • You NEED TO PAY for HANK HOWARD PIZZA DETECTIVE by or on the 12th, but you can PICK UP later, of course.
  • In-store/off the shelf sales, mail order and phone orders are ALL allowed. You can PRE-PAY if you like, so PLEASE DO SO if you want to be sure you DON’T MISS IT.
  • Supply is LIMITED – All orders will be filled on a first in/first out basis.
  • You still have time to put your name on the list for HANK HOWARD PIZZA DETECTIVE, and spots are filling up fast.
  • Any orders NOT PAID for will be CANCELLED at the end of the day on the 12th and those books will be returned to BAD IDEA HQ.

PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have: The shop number is 510.744.9287 and I am ALWAYS checking my email.

PLEASE don’t message me on INSTAGRAM or TWITTER because I don’t check my phone during business hours if it’s busy, and Wednesdays tend to be busy. Many thanks in advance!


2) I WORK FOR YOU DEPARTMENT:

Just a GENTLE REMINDER that I WORK FOR YOU – if there’s a book or item that I don’t carry, or a special order that you’re interested in – PLEASE let me know so that I can get it for you.

There are TOO MANY good books being published and I can’t carry everything, but IF I CAN get it for you, I WILL.

It’s NOT ANY EXTRA WORK OR TROUBLE, so PLEASE LET ME KNOW. It’s LITERALLY MY JOB.

We are OPEN from 11a to 6p on WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY & SATURDAY.
