    Infinite Jest: Let's be honest: if you're dropping 10 grand on a start-up bookstore, you can afford more books than I can offer you. So in addition to the other rewards, we will do everything in our power to partner with and promote you or your business with ad space in-store and on our website. Our backer-only preview party is in your honor. If you're a writer, you're welcome to write book reviews for our site. Also, I will personally help you move once (if you live in Chicago).
