Attention shoppers


Melville House and MobyLives are closed for the holidays. The Melville House Bookshop is closed, too. That means you can’t take advantage of our insane, Amazon-like sale at our online store. Well, you can, because we didn’t have the time to figure out how to undo the automatic discount from PayPal, so we’ve still got our bestsellers like Hans Fallada, Gail Hareven, Lore Segal and Tao Lin at $7.99 and everything else at 20% off, but you won’t get the books until after the holidays.

As for you newshounds, Moby will be back in early January. Save up some good gossip and news tips for us, will you? We don’t plan on paying much attention to the biz between now and then. See, we got this big stack of books we’ve been saving up to read ….

Now, that’s a happy holiday. Hope you have one, too.
