If you are like us, you usually have a few books going at the same time, especially during the summer. For the next couple of weeks, we thought we’d encourage this kind of reading with a sale we are calling The Pairs. Below you’ll find some precision selections, arranged as duos. Visit the sale collection (or go to any of the individual books below), and use the code "The Pairs" at checkout to get 40% off (shipping in the US via media mail is always FREE). 

You don’t have to buy and read these books together, but we certainly think you should. Regardless of what you do, we’ll keep these discounts going until July 4th
