Now available for preorder is The Complete Peanuts volume 19: 1987-1988. The book can now be ordered at full list price of $28.99 – which is a good thing. Why? Because in my experience with Amazon, if you preorder something that costs more than $25, and the price dips before …

A Charlie Brown Christmas in print nonbookishly
