Today is Seattle Mystery Bookshop's 20th anniversary. You should read their whole post about the anniversary over here, but here's the part where you get free stuff:

Support The Stranger

From our point of view, the book is alive and well, and so are we. To celebrate and thank our customers on Thursday, July 1st we’ll have birthday cake, coffee and tea, we’ll be giving away advanced readers copies to those who buy a new book as well as a commemorative puzzle to mark the 20 years. (And if you don’t live here in Seattle, don’t worry, we’ll send you a nifty puzzle with your next order and perhaps an ARC as well!). The cake may be gone by the end of the day but we’ll be giving out ARCs and puzzles through Saturday. We’ll be closed on Sunday in honor of the 4th.

It's hard work to run a mystery bookshop that doesn't suck, and Seattle Mystery Bookshop is the best one I've ever visited. Their recommendations are outstanding, and their depth of knowledge about the mystery genre is second-to-none in Seattle. You should drop by and congratulate them.
