Just in the Saint Nick of Time (Free Book #2!)

johnny optimism, medical, humor, sick, jokes, boy, wheelchair, doctors, hospital, stilton jarlsberg, home for the horrid days, collection, free book, Christmas

If it's true that it's better to give than receive, that laughter is the best medicine, and that the best things in life are free, I'm knocking it out of the park by giving away the ebook version of Johnny Optimism's newly-released book "Home for the Horrid Days."

For three days only (Friday 12/16 - Sunday 12/18) you can download the book at this link to read on any computer, tablet, or phone using a free Kindle Reader app available here

Note: before ordering, be sure the price shows as free (and not just "Read for Free" with Kindle Unlimited)! Instead, you want to buy the book for $0.00.

Amazingly, reading a cartoon book on a smartphone is a perfectly pleasant experience because I fiddled around with the book's code to enable an "easy reading" mode: just turn your device sideways, tap on any page, and you'll suddenly see just one cartoon at a time at a size that won't make you go blind! Tap on the right to go to the next cartoon, or tap on the left to go backward.

There's also a beautiful paperback edition of this Holiday collection available for a ridiculous $3.59 with free Prime shipping. That means you're just a mouse-click away from being able to send a wonderful (and memorable) gift to family and friends for about the price of a big Hallmark card with glitter on it. And frankly, the recipients won't get as much quality bathroom reading time out of a Hallmark card, nor will they accidentally sprinkle glitter on their private regions. A phrase that I may turn into a Christmas song at some point.

Please feel free to share this link to the free Kindle book with family, friends, on social media, or with whoever is in the hospital bed next to yours. But remember to tell them to act fast, because the ebook is only free Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (12/16-12/18).

A Special Favor: after downloading the book, I'd really appreciate any reviews you'd care to post on Amazon. Amazon promotes (or demotes) books based on their popularity and reviews, so it really makes a huge difference. And reviews can be short and sweet - just a sentence or two! But please don't mention politics in your reviews - Johnny's got enough problems already!

Just downloaded a copy and can’t wait to read it. Thanks Stilt, and Merry Christmas to you and Daughter J - and, of course, to Kathy.

Received my hard copy yesterday and downloaded ebook version earlier this week. Many thanks to you and your dear departed wife for these wonderfully mashed up idioms.

Thanks for the Book, sir! Nothing like that special touch of humor for the holidays for the people who appreciate it. And those who might not but are going to experience it anyway...

This is awesome. Downloading a copy tonight!

Thanks, Stilt
Merry Christmas
I'll reciprocate with a free Kindle copy
of my cartoon collection, too.
(What? Nah, get real. Never gonna happen.)

I downloaded the book about Johnny Optimism, Stilton. I also finally figured out how to write a review on Amazon.
While I haven't written to you in years, I still read your cartoons and so appreciate you.
May God Bless you and your family.
Merry Christmas!

Thanks Stilton! If we don't hear from you next week, have a Very Merry Christmas! (or at least try to; staying low key probably better than trying to recreate any past extravagances)

Got it -- and Kathy's. Thank you for sharing with us. Will post reviews soon as I finish them.

Merry Christmas, Stilt and daughter.

Thank you Stilton! I bought the hard copy of the book you wrote about Kathy’s crazy sentence structure, and will order a copy of this one as well. Wishing you and your daughter a Blessed Christmas. And Kathy has the best seat in the house! 🥰🎄😇
