Discount Peanuts books, including one of mine

I just checked at BookOutlet.com (<use that link and you may get a $5 gift card and I get a kickback if you order), and found that they have the Peanuts Paint-By-Number Kit that includes the small book that I wrote, Classic Peanuts: Great Moments, for $7.99, which is less than half its list price. I’ll probably order some of those myself to sell at conventions…  and if I do, I’ll charge folks full price for ’em (a guy’s gotta make a profit somewhere!), so you’d be better off ordering them here.

Other Peanuts books they have at the moment include hardcover copies of the level 2 readers Time for School, Charlie Brown and movie-based You’ve Got Talent, Charlie Brown for $4.99 each, the movie-based Charlie Brown is Not a Quitter for $5.99, softcover storybooks Go Fly a Kite, Charlie Brown and Snoopy Takes Off for $1.99 each, Meet the Peanuts Gang for $2.99. The recent valentiny hardcover version of Love is Walking Hand In Hand is $3.99, and the hardcover version of A Charlie Brown Christmas: The Making of a Tradition is $4.99.  All of these are at least half off the list price, some more. In some cases, these books may have a remaindering mark – generally a Sharpie line across one of the edges.

Big Books from the big box store

From time to time, I get questions about how to buy The Big Book of Peanuts series, and they tend to be tough to answer. I understand why people would want these books, as each of them has a whole decade of the Peanuts daily strip (no Sundays.) While there are …

Hot Wheels hot deals

I’m used to Hot Wheels charging several bucks apiece for licensed character cars, so when I saw this series of six Peanuts cars for $1 at my local Ralphs grocery store (with membership card, natch), I scarfed them up without pausing to think “do I really need Hot Wheels cars?” …
