All Calendars $3.99! Sierra Club in stock!

Hello Pegasus friends!

Among the retail casualties of last year was our traditional calendar sale. We began to buy these in September, and at that time we were pretty sure we could not have our usual madcap experience with hundreds of calendar lovers in our stores. So we bought some, cautiously, and decided to just have those available as soon as they got to us. And so when January 1 rolled around, we had sold most of them.

The only thing normal about the year was that our awesome art calendars, shipped from Germany in November, are late. As of today, they are still wandering around America with FedEx, who, possibly understandably, is not answering the phone. However! Tushita calendars are indisputably on their way, about 200 titles - art, Buddhism, cooking, nature, animals and countries- as are another batch of 50 excellent titles from Browntrout. We will make sure to tell you the EXACT DAY they will be at the stores, and we invite you to hang on and come in then.

And in another note, dear Pegasus friends, you have been awesome, supportive, book-mad, and completely satisfactory from our point of view. Thank you, Happy New Year, and we promise to pull out all the stops next year! All best, Amy and all the team at Pegasus Books
