Indiana University Press is having an “Intellectual Stimulus Package” sale, and it’s worth your while to take a look. The Civil War section has knockdowns of up to 84%, making it a great way to expand your library. If you’re interested in the ’64 Valley Campaign I recommend Jim Leeke’s Hundred Days to Richmond, which is the only study of the Ohio National Guard. You can grab a copy for just under $7. Free shipping, too.

On a related note, British book chain Blackwell is installing Print-On-Demand machines in their bookstores.

In the time it takes to brew a cappuccino, this machine can print off any book that is not in stock from a vast computer database.

Just the thing for those scarce regimentals!
