Some holidays have questions attached. For example, the seder, the traditional meal ceremony that begins the Jewish holiday of Passover, features a quarter of questions built around the theme of “why is this night different from all other nights?” Valentine’s Day has “Do you love me?” April Fool’s Day has “Do you have Dr. Pepper in a bottle?” And here at the AAUGH Blog, we’ve discovered that the Christmas season comes with the question “Is Costco finally going to carry the logical fifth and final volume of The Big Book of Peanuts series, covering all the daily strips from the 1990s?”
Well, the answer is no… but there is actually some interesting Big Book of Peanuts news. Costco does have a new product this year – a boxed set named Peanuts by the Decade, which has the first three volumes of The Big Book of Peanuts series, in paperback for the first time. So for $49.99, you get all the daily strips from 1950 through 1979, that’s over 9000 strips, for a fraction of a cent apiece. (But then you’ll want the last two decades. Dare we hope that next year brings a boxed set with the 1980s volume and the previously unavailable 1990s?)
Costco is only offering this set at their warehouses; it is not available from them online.
