Hi everyone. I am a (very) long-time dkos user, but this is my first diary. I lurk - a LOT - and since I have the mic for a sec I just wanna say HI everybody! Love your work, thanks for the links, I spam them all over facebook. :)

Now - let's get down to business. Say you work for a bookstore, or know someone who does. They'll periodically get emails from different publishers informing you of their GREAT DEALS!! on books you'll never be able to make money on anyway, since Amazon will have them for 40% off before they're even published - but I digress.

Now let's say you've been giggling over popcorn as this whole "THEN I TOTALLY RAMBO'D MY BUTT OVER THAT FENCE AND I DID THIS BRUCE LEE MOVE AND LIKE ALL THE AL QAEDAS JUST FELL DOWN DEAD" business that 60 minutes got themselves into. You've been enjoying scrolling the rec list, and seeing that priceless freeze-frame of Lara "O_O wut" Logan pulling an attempted CYA.

What could be a better gift to you on a day already filled with such wonders? How about this email direct from Simon & Schyster Schuster (h/t to user PsychoSavannah for pointing out CBS's huge conflict of interest in respect to S&S) explaining that, oopsie, we need you to send all them books back right meow plz.
