Praise For…


“A literary manifesto—a celebration of direct and exacting voices, a rejection of the fuzzily adorable, and a recommendation of humor as one of the essential tools of both art and life.” —Henry Hitchings, The Wall Street Journal

"A good Christmas present for pretty much anyone. . .Quotations books are often awful and faux-wise, but this is sharp and funny." —India Knight, Times Literary Supplement

"An uncommon commonplace book from a wide-ranging reader . . . A diverting trove of witty remarks."—Kirkus Reviews

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
