Holiday Shopping Note: Signed Books

If you happen to be planning to buy a book I wrote for a holiday gift, please buy it from a local store. If you would like a signed copy of a book I wrote, buy it from Longfellow Books in Portland and I'll go over there and sign it.

(This offer good year-round, but I like to mention it at the holidays.)
