Thanks to hyperboleandahalf, your 2015 just got a whole lot brighter.
Out of the vaults & into your hands, V.1: part of the fun of our ongoing Sidewalk Sale is digging through boxes and stumbling upon treasures, oddities, and everything in between. We’ll be posting some of our favorites and would welcome your participation, too, so send us a picture of your best (or strangest) find and we’ll add it to the mix. For now, a quick reminder that all Sidewalk Sale books are $10/hardcover & $5/paperback, with prices dropping to $8 and $4 respectively this Saturday. And, without further ado: a cover that conflates business success with physical strength, plus a book that everyone with a full spam folder wishes they’d thought to write.
Yo Stoner fans, looky what’s about to drop from nyrbclassics!

It’s happening, folks. Tell your mothers, your brothers, your Levinasian Other (whatever that means). Saturday, August 16th through ??, we’ll be running a massive sidewalk sale at both locations. Prices will drop week by week, the selection of books will change hour by hour, so come early, come often, and get booky with it.
Wondering what’s new in book world? Well, some guy named Murakami put out a new book, kind of under the radar. Jean Baudrillard, aka the Tupac of critical theory, posthumously dropped another book. Karin Fossum continues to thrill. And twodollarradio keeps being too loud to ignore. Checkitout.
Robin Williams brought some of our favorite bookish characters to life during his acting career. Let’s remember.
We’re looking pretty fierce these days, if we do say so ourselves.
