Free Books, People! Free Books!

They're stationed in Madison, which doesn't really make them local, but Bleak House Books has published some local works, most notably the great Chicago Blues, which I reviewed two Octobers ago. So, I feel sufficiently justified in linking to them here, especially when it's for the purpose of spreading the word that they're offering free books this holiday season. You pay for shipping, but that's it! Nothing else! There are a few things that are unavailable, so be sure to read the website carefully for what you can get and the rules for getting them. It's just a little bit of love from an independent publisher who's trying to spread some good words.
