Like our Flash Sale items, we’ve reduced these ourselves because we have more in stock than we need right now. They are on sale like this nowhere else. Supply is limited. These are not on sale due to any lack of quality. They are all superb books, particularly the Flesk titles, Tuki and Trailblazers… They just haven’t sold as well as I expected when I brought in large initial numbers.
