District 214 Book Giveaway Is Over

A couple weeks ago, a member of suburban Chicago’s high-school district 214 asked that Freakonomics, along with several other books, be removed from a list of required summer reading. In the end, none of the books were removed — and since District 214 students are free to read Freakonomics, we offered to send free signed copies to the first 50 students who asked. The good news is that we received the first 50 requests in short order; the bad news is that we’re out of the giveaway books. We’ll soon send e-mails to everyone who requested a book, and the first 50 people should get their books within a week or two. Thanks to all for your interest.
