Richard's Poor Almanac - The Book


Those of you unwilling to cough up $80 to $998.99 (or £268.55 in the UK) for a copy of the understandably scarce book collection of Richard's Poor Almanac will be happy to hear that now you can snag a copy for a more reasonable sum. One More Page Books, my friendly neighborhood bookstore that also stocks wine, has a supply of RPAs on hand, all signed by me. Copies are going for $15 (I think) and they'll ship your book right to your door for just $4. Run on over to 2200 N. Westmoreland Street, Suite 101 Arlington, VA,  22213 or call 703-300-9746 or email info@onemorepagebooks.com and tell 'em to give you a copy and quick, or you'll have some kind of Richard's Poor Almanac-related breakdown right on the spot. And maybe you should have some of that wine too.



These two tables used to be on the Amazon page for the Almanac. I don't know what they mean.

sounds like a bargain at 1,298 words per ounce

Yeaaaah and weeeee. I'm not sure if I'll be able to snatch a copy, but I'll try as hard as I can! We'll see if it's an issue that I'm outside of the US, though I surely hope not.

I've been looking for Richard's Poor Almanac ever since the first Cul De Sac came out, but just couldn't split with my 100 dollars on Amazon or Ebay, not when I could get MORE Cul De Sac for that money (you see, I keep handing them out to my friends with statements like "You've GOT to read this").

Anyway. None of this is relevant to you, Richard, so just: "Weeeeeee".

This made my day, Richard! I called them up this morning and spoke with a very nice woman by the name of Lisa - she was extremely helpful, so I didn't have to fake an RPA-related breakdown! :)

Can't wait to read the book!!

Yayyy!!! I got a copy! I've been wanting a collection of your Poor Richard's Almanac comics for a couplethree years and now I'll have a signed copy at a bargain price considering the words per ounce. :-) Thanks!!

That’s 57 hours of driving for me -according to google. I doubt there would be a copy left...

My wife dropped off 50 more books, freshly signed. And I've got plenty more, believe me.

Richard, thank you for releasing those copies from captivity. I had been trying to get one for a couple of years; the bookstore staff has been very helpful. And I am not a robot.

I better correct my previous statement for readers I've now c onvinced of the difficulty of obtaining Richard's Poor Almanac through One More Page Book: A simple phone call cleared the Richard's Poor Almanac Anxiety Gloom.

They're very friendly ladies, who're flooded with domestic and international requests and are simply working their way through the lists.

So to others from international places, be patient.

Thanks again Richard.

Just got mine in the mail! The folks at One More Page could not have been more wonderful -- go now and give them some business!!

H.V.Lukas said...

I spoke too soon it seems. I never heard back after an initial contact.

I shall hope for a rich uncle to be generous enough to buy me Richard's Poor Almanac from Amazon.

richardcthompson said...

Don't give up! I owe them another box of signed copies. Which they should get next week.

H.V.Lukas said...

You're very kind, Richard. Don't worry, I'll get my hands on it eventually. I'm optimistic.
