We'd rather sell than pack!

The Zimmer clan is preparing for some renovations to the house, which means boxing up all my books. We’ve got a particularly tall stack of copies of my first book, At the Water’s Edge: Fish with Fingers, Whales With Legs, and How Life Came Ashore and Went Back to the Sea. We’d rather sell these books than pack them. And so, from today till Friday, I’ll be offering autographed copies at my Amazon store for the low, low price of $5. (Imagine me shouting all this, Crazy-Eddie style.)

If you’re not familiar with the book, you can check out its carlzimmer.com page or check out this review in Times Higher Education, in which the reviewer writes, “It is wicked, I know, but I have the habit of turning over the corners of pages whenever I chance upon something unexpectedly interesting, exciting or informative. Zimmer’s At the Water’s Edge quickly became the most dog-eared book on my shelves.”

Update 5/16 9:50 am: Whoa! I put this post up this morning before I caught at cab to LAX. By the time I got through security at the airport, all the sale copies were sold out. Many thanks for helping us with our home renovation!

I’ll be back home on Thursday, at which point, we’ll see whether we can’t clear some more space. In the meantime, you can still check out other autographed titles in my Amazon store.
