Our big idea this year? Thinking small.
Help folks find the books that are perfect for you with this handy, helpful system.
For the past few months, we've been teasing a big change. And now it's here.

When we first found out about our nomination, we both had small panic attacks.
Hey folks – we all want you to know that there are some very big things coming to Variant Edition quite soon – and while we can’t tell you what the biggest thing is just yet, we’re going to be telling you about a change to the store that’s going to make things better for everyone going forward.
