It’s Only A Game now shipping

For those of you who aren’t into pre-ordering, It’s Only A Game (the collection of Charles Schulz’s lost syndicated comic series) is now available for immediate shipping, and at a healthy discount to boot.

And as a reminder, ordering stuff through these links is a great way to handle your gift-giving needs, particularly for people who do not live nearby. You can have your purchases shipped directly to the people you’re getting things to, and for an extra fee even have them gift-wrapped. I’m doing most of my giving this way this year. It lets me stay at home with my new baby rather than spending time trundling through the malls and then more time waiting in line at the post office. Hannukah is mere days away and Christmas is coming up before you know it!

And if you look at the links on the left column of AAUGH.com, you’ll see that we now have links for Snoopywear and Peanuts Jewelry for your shopping needs. (And yes, once you click through from AAUGH.com to Amazon, anything you order generates some money to help support AAUGH.com, without costing you an extra cent.)
