It seems that predictions of a harsh winter for 2013-2014 are on target. The phrase ‘polar vortex,’ which first appeared in print in the 1970s has become a household expression. The US ‘Deep South’ is seeing freezing rain and snow, and temps hovering near 0 degrees F are as far south as Tennessee. Brrr! This pattern will repeat itself for the third time next week.
But the good news is that those who are running short on reading material have only to head on over to amazon.com and get a Kindle copy of a great St. Clair Publication book! And we have a vast supply of all sorts of goodies, and more cranking out all the time. I thought I would not have to go out this frigid morn, but my good friend, Kelly, at a local radio station, reran an old interview with me from about six weeks ago in which I offered a limited number of my popular book, Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions at a big discount. Being the softy that I am, I honored the price, even though I had oversold at my last book signing and only had one on hand. I had a box of them on the way from the printer (to cover my oversells) and had to order more now. I went out this morning and met one of the ones who called me about the replay of the show, and let her have my last book. More should be here today, and with the ones I have coming in the next two boxes, I should be able to cover present orders.
They are still selling well on line, and the good thing about those is that they are shipped straight from Amazon to the customer. Thank God for modern technology, and especially for the Internet! So stay in, stay warm, and catch up on your reading!
