Online retailers call today Cyber Monday (as contrasted with Black Friday of the bricks-and-mortar retailers) and Gaylord Brothers, Better World Books, and the Museum of Science & Industry (MSI) are all offering Cyber Monday Deals. Gaylord Brothers is offering 25% off archival and library supplies purchases, with free shipping on purchases over $250.
The free shipping applies to ground shipping in the contiguous forty-eight states. For this offer, use Priority Code 101013.
The spokesrobot looks suspiciously like a wind-up toy. It states, “Although we robots feel no emotion, we have observed a strong affinity for books among humans. We've seen you stare at them for hours! So inefficient. Why not just download the data to your internal storage? We may never understand.”
One way we can improve this process for you is to reduce the currency number-sorry, make that ‘price’ for the next 24 of your hours. Access 6 or more used Bargain Bin books to observe this function.
Plus, every book you purchase lets us donate one to someone who needs it!

The Cyber Monday deal at MSI is $20 off a gift membership bought on Cyber Monday. MSI states, “Today only, save $20 on an MSI gift membership—offering a full year of fun and learning. And the best part? You don’t have to try to find a gift bag large enough to fit a tornado, a submarine, a 727, a ton of wonder and dozens of baby chicks. Hurry! This offer ends at midnight tonight.”
Frankly, I’ve never heard of Giving Tuesday before, but MSI also has a Giving Tuesday deal. Money thus raised goes into MSI’s Annual Fund. “Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving at the start of the holiday season. Our Give the Gift of Geek program is a great way to take part in #GivingTuesday by supporting science education with a gift to MSI. Choose from several iconic exhibits to support and receive a personalized certificate, plus other fun benefits.”
