Hello! I just want to quickly check in and let you know that you can still order the second edition of my book Food Lover’s Guide to Portland, which came out in September from Hawthorne Books, directly from us for 40% off the cover price, with free shipping, by using the code FLGP20VIP at checkout at our online store. If you charge cover price that’s a $7 profit. We have really, really appreciated all of the independent sales of the book and it’s really fun for me to see it stocked in so many of my favorite food and drink spots in and around Portland. Also, prior to the book releasing we mailed out window decals to all businesses and organizations featured in it. If you did not receive one or more and would like any number of them to display please holler and I’ll send you some.
All the best—
