Celebrate March with a FREE BOOK from UPK!

It’s the first month of spring! And we want to erase all the cold memories of SnOMG!, Thundersnow, and all the other epic winter events of the past season. To celebrate the coming of warmer weather and the new beginnings of Spring, we’re giving away FREE BOOKS!

Yes, you saw that correctly- FREE BOOKS! Every month, we’ll offer a new book to our loyal fans and followers absolutely free! Just follow the link to sign up, and your book will make its way to you within about 2 weeks (while supplies last- we’ll let you know when we’re out).

This month, we’re giving away hardcover editions of Lincoln Legends: Myths, Hoaxes, and Confabulations Associated with Our Greatest President by Edward Steers, Jr.

“Through meticulous research, Steers eventually uncovers a larger irony: Lincoln, whom he calls “a passionate advocate for truth,” will forever be shrouded in legend.”-New York Post

“An enlightening look at the myths and outright lies that have both glorified and slandered the sixteenth president. Reading it is like seeing a deifying marble statue of the Great Emancipator, one that had suffered vandalism, slowly come to life, step down from its pedestal, and allow us to meet an unassuming but great man.”-Joe Nickell, author of Unsolved History: Investigating Mysteries of the Past

For those wanting answers about Lincoln, this is a fine volume. Leaving humor to the fun front cover, the contents are at once deferential to those seeking basic information and probing about deeper layers of the president’s life. A solid offering displaying expert research.” –Library Journal
