The Book Elves relationship with St. Patrick’s Day has always been 
problematic. They love the day very very much, but it mostly doesn’t 
love them back. Their efforts in recent years have resulted in them 
being ejected for rowdiness from a Dropkick Murphy’s “Kiss Me, I’m 
Sh*tfaced” concert, stuck with an improbably high bill for removing 
green dye from the Connecticut River, and being permanently banned entry 
into the Republic of Ireland. So this year we all breathed a sigh of 
relief when they promised to scale back their plans, which was, 
admittedly, a bit stupid of us. But I swear to God and the Lucky Charms 
leprechaun, I have no idea how they managed to blanket the entire valley 
in a foot of green snow…

So, with nothing better to do after being served multiple restraining 
orders by the National Weather Service, the Book Elves finished our 
latest catalog-
