Lit Bit: Still Time to Gift Geese and Trains

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on December 7, 2012 0 Comments

Still doing your holiday shopping? If books are on your list, there’s still time to get autographed copies of Flightless Goose and Tracks: A Novel in Stories.

It’s more important for me to share my books with others than it is to make a profit off of them. That’s why I’m practically giving them away at cost.

For the child on your list, we’ll send a signed and personally inscribed copy of the hardcover, full-color storybook Flightless Goose for only $12. (Retail is $15.95)

For the grown-up reader of fiction or train enthusiast, we’ll send a signed and personally inscribed copy of Tracks: A Novel in Stories for only $12. (Retail is $15.95)

Want them both? Get a copy of each for only only $20! Or bet two copies of either book for the same discounted price. Add additional copies for $10 each.

Shipping will be $2 for one book and an additional $1 for each additional book.

If you’d like your books signed or inscribed to yourself or the person you’re gifting to, please let me know and we’ll be happy to sign. I’ll sign Tracks and Flightless Goose, and the illustrator, Nataliya Goodman, will sign Flightless Goose.

You can order by contacting me at my email address ( or in a Facebook message (  

Payment can be sent by check or money order, or paid electronically by credit card or PayPal.
