Ebook Details

The Ebook Files Come in both Mobi and ePub versions, which you can download from the shopping cart immediately after your purchase. For details on what to do with those files, see How Do I Read True’s Ebooks? You don’t have to have an “ebook reader” (let alone the Kindle brand) to read them: you can read ebooks on your computer (Windows or Mac), tablet (iPad or Android), or smartphone (iPhone, Android, Windows, and many Blackberrys). See the linked page for details.

Your purchase gets you the ebook files, or you can “upgrade” your order to get them and the paperback. The files are not “copy protected” — we trust you to be fair with us and not share the files with others.

Book Details

Each volume of the This is True collection contains a full year’s worth of columns from This is True, plus many extra stories that didn’t make it into the column — newspapers have a strict space budget which Randy had to adhere to, but sometimes there are just too many fun stories he can’t help but write about. You haven’t seen them all even if you’ve read every column online or in the newspaper. There are more than 500 True stories and headlines in each!

The printed versions are no cheap pulp paperbacks. They’re “trade” (high-quality) paperbacks with stay-flat, laminated, color covers.

This is True books make a great gift. Our attention to quality makes your gifts all that more appreciated. The quality is so high, we’ve never had one returned under our better-than-risk-free satisfaction guaranteed policy! Also, don’t forget that Premium subscribers get a 20% discount on books — no limit! Your discount could pay for your Premium subscription. You may order discounted books at the same time you order a Premium subscription.

Free shipping is by media mail to USA.

Also Available Via Amazon in paperback or value priced on Kindle.
