Eternal Salvation And A Good Night's Sleep All For A Fiver

Looking back through the annals of News From Nowhere I see that the blog is nine years old this month. Over that nine years there have been over 1,600 posts which have collectively attracted over half a million page views. And I am proud to say that throughout this period, News From Nowhere has never been sullied by the stench of raw and untreated commercialism. Never once have we accepted the tainted currency of the advertiser wishing to push his or her products to an unsuspecting public. We have remained free, and proud, and independent ....... until now.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN IDEAL CHRISTMAS GIFT?
DO YOU WANT TO IMPRESS YOUR FELLOW COMMUTERS BY YOUR CHOICE OF READING MATTER?
ARE YOU HAVING TROUBLE GETTING TO SLEEP AT NIGHT?


Yes, now you can access the collected thoughts, musings and complaints of a man who has been described as "one of the greatest living Yorkshireman" (*) This beautifully hand-crafted volume contains all the News From Nowhere posts for 2012 in one easy-to-hold, impossible-to-put-down volume. Maybe you weren't born in 2012, maybe you have forgotten what the old fool wrote back then, maybe you want to get your own back on a distant relative who gave you a cold : there are many reasons to buy this unforgettable book. Just £5 from Amazon (with free postage if you are part of Amazon Prime), think of it not so much as an impulse buy, more as an investment in my future.

Don't come from the UK? Don't worry. Retailers from around the world have come together to ensure that you can get your hands on this number one bestseller whether you live in Kansas or Kurdistan, Vancouver or Venice, Harare or Heckmondwike.

CAN YOU RISK NOT BEING ONE OF THE CHOSEN FEW?
BUY NOW BEFORE STOCKS RUN OUT.
BUY NOW FOR CHRISTMAS.
BUY NOW FOR ETERNAL SALVATION.

  6. How exciting, congratulations Alan!
    I see that Amazon lists a new copy for $6.12, a very fair if uncommon price.
    But already it is available as "used-like new condition" at $6.32 !!! An appreciation of nearly 3.5%. That's real value in literature!

    And it's a REAL BOOK!
    None of this virtual blogger nonsense. Got to get my copy today before they sell out.
