I was planning to make some bookmarks for people to download and hand out if other people are asking about the book.
However, apparently my old keynote (the mac equivalent of powerpoint) doesn't work with my osx upgrade. ARGH!
What I was planning to do was to make a pdf file which people could download and print on paper or stock and cut out.
Typical dimension of bookmark: 2"x8"

Things to include: title, url, ISBN (9781453601211).
Lots of creativity ... for instance, how would you summarize the book on a bookmark?
If anyone is interested, go ahead and make it. I'll make the pdf downloadable on the blog. You can include a "designed by name/url".

cool idea. you might consider putting a promotional code on the bookmark where you can save money on the book at one of the sellers. maybe even have a bunch of proper bookmarks printed and send them to whoever wants them?
why not make a coupon code and put out a press release about it to all the frugality and PF blogs?

Good idea with the coupon code. It's getting pretty hard to beat amazon, however. On the other hand, the amazon discount may well be temporary. I just noticed that the heavily discounted AONC book almost doubled in price after losing most of its discount.

My contribution.
Since I couldn't think of a good middle class figure, I went with shackles. It works both in color and in gray scale.

Nice! Any way you can copy and paste it, so that it appears several times across the paper so that no paper goes to waste when printed. Presumably we got scissors.
