The 2014 Tournament of Books

March 19th, 2014 by Jim Coudal

TOB_D-sq-M

We’re happy to be the title sponsor of the 10th edition of The Morning News Tournament of Books that’s going on right now.

From TMN: “In case you’re new to all this, the ToB is an annual springtime event here at The Morning News, where a group of the best works of fiction from last year enter a March Madness-style battle royale. In March, these novels will be seeded and paired off in an NCAA Tournament-like bracket. For each pairing, one of our esteemed judges will read both novels and advance one, with a transparent explanation of how they made their decision.”

We Forget All Too Soon the Things We Thought We Could Never Forget

March 16th, 2013 by Jim Coudal

Excerpts from and comments on Joan Didion’s essay “On Keeping a Notebook”, by Maria Popova.

Why did I write it down? In order to remember, of course, but exactly what was it I wanted to remember? How much of it actually happened? Did any of it? Why do I keep a notebook at all? It is easy to deceive oneself on all those scores. The impulse to write things down is a peculiarly compulsive one, inexplicable to those who do not share it, useful only accidentally, only secondarily, in the way that any compulsion tries to justify itself.

Our Contract with America
(and Everywhere Else for that Matter)

November 4th, 2012 by Jim Coudal

We don’t send notes to our email subscribers very often but when we do it’s for one of two reasons.

1. The people on our list always get first crack new products before we offer them up for sale on the site or anywhere else. This includes our seasonal limited-editions (like the Winter release which will be announced in a couple weeks) and all other new product launches.

2. We won’t make an offer anywhere else that we don’t also make to our list, so you don’t have to worry about missing a discount or freebie if you’re a subscriber.

That’s pretty much it. Sign up over on the left there, just enter your email address and hit “enter.” It goes without saying we’ll guard your privacy like it was our own. If you decide to quit the list later you can just click an “unsubscribe” link in a mail and you’re out. We’re very good about that.

Since we started our limited-edition, quarterly runs of COLORS memo books, we have tried to up the ante with each release. It’s going to be difficult to top what we’ve done over the last year, but we’re up for and eager for the challenge.

If you had signed up as a COLORS subscriber around this time a year ago, you would have received two 3-Packs of the states of your choosing from our County Fair edition, along with two 3-Packs of our original Graph Paper books (and a handful of goodies, per usual). That was followed up in the fall with two 3-Packs of the sinister, immensely popular, black-on-black Raven’s Wing edition, which sold out so quickly that individual orders were available for less than 24 hours. Come winter, we released Balsam Fir, and subscribers received two 3-Packs of the Olive memo books with white, high-gloss foil-stamped lettering, along with a gift envelope and gift card to mail one 3-Pack to a note-taking friend for the holidays. Most recently, subscribers found two packs of the Dry Transfer _______ Edition in their mailboxes. A fun nod to the glory days of graphic design, this edition comes with a sheet of rub-on alphabets so you can add your own title to the books.

In total over the last year, COLORS subscribers from have received 10 3-Packs of memo books, a special-edition calendar, lots of pens, pencils, buttons, bands of rubber, and all assortment of goodies in between, plus all shipping to anywhere as well as the piece of mind in knowing that their limited-edition COLORS books would arrive while they were immediately selling out for everyone else. Case in point: our latest, the Dry Transfer ________ Edition, is now sold out.

The only way to get the Dry Transfer _______ Edition now, and to be certain you don’t miss any of what we have cooked up for the next year (you’re going to flip for this summer’s), is through a new COLORS subscription. Whaddya say?

We know from experience, after shipping thousands of Field Notes County Fair Memo Books to everywhere, that most of the USPS state abbreviations are easy. But darned if we don’t have to look up the “M” states every time. You could have that information and a ton more state-specific data, right at the tip of your fingers if you bought the special Box Set of All Fifty States. Shipping now.
