Books for schools and libraries!One of the stretch goals we kept hitting was more and more books being sent, free of charge, to schools and libraries worldwide. We had schools sign up from all over, and we sent out those books last week. Some have already arrived! In both cases I've found, the librarians have wanted to read the book first. AWESOME.

From Pandamans's Tumblr, no Batman unfortunately :(
Our book was on the Colbert Report!
Alexis Ohanian was on the Colbert Report last night to talk about his new book, Without Their Permission, and mentioned our little book that you might be familiar with, To Be or Not To Be, as an example of the internet making awesome things happen! Colbert was kinda big into the idea which was amazing and super sweet. You can watch the clip here!
Best Book Of 2013? SURE SOUNDS GOOD
To Be or Not To Be is, thanks to your votes, now in the semifinals round of Goodread's Best Humor Books of 2013! It's a straight-up popularity contest, so you can straight-up vote for it AGAIN here. There's tons of great books in that category alone: if you're looking for new things to read I recommend The Oatmeal's "My Dog: The Paradox" (Matt also did an illustration for To Be or Not To Be!), Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half, and Kelly Williams Brown's Adulting. See the full list here!
(this is the same picture i used the last time but just imagine "opening round" now says "semifinal round" and it will be consistent with reality, phew)
In similarly surreal news, I still have to make and then eat a Hamlet pizza. That has not been forgotten! It is the most daunting of the stretch goals.
And yet, the most delicious??
