I Am A Genius of Unspeakable Evil And I Want To Be Your Class President [Saturday Steals]

Yes, that's the title of a book.  Yes, it's the title of a book I bought.  Yes, it's the title of a Bargain Book from Amazon.  Yes, it is my Steal this week for my Saturday Steals post.  Why?

I paid $3.15 for the hardcover.  Though it looks like now it's gone back up to $6.80.  Sorry.  My savings was 81%.  Yipee!
Twelve-year-old Oliver Watson’s got the IQ of a grilled cheese sandwich. Or so everyone in Omaha thinks. In reality, Oliver’s a mad evil genius on his way to world domination, and he’s used his great brain to make himself the third-richest person on earth! Then Oliver’s father—and archnemesis—makes a crack about the upcoming middle school election, and Oliver takes it as a personal challenge. He’ll run, and he’ll win! Turns out, though, that overthrowing foreign dictators is actually way easier than getting kids to like you. . . Can this evil genius win the class presidency and keep his true identity a secret, all in time to impress his dad?
The author, Josh Lieb, is the Emmy-winning co-executive producer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  This is his debut YA novel.  Oh, and this book came out last October - it's less than a year old.  Great steal if you ask me.  I Am A Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President at Amazon.

How did you guys do this week?  Did you get any great steals you wanna share?  Go write a post, then head over to Archives of Our Lives and add a link to it.  It'll be fun.  Promise.  While you're there, check out everyone else's steals too.  They're always fun!

Awesome steal, and this sounds hilarious. Thanks for sharing (and participating)!

There was this awesome panel at BlogHer that made me think of you—it was all about the difference between self-publishing and traditional-publishing, and how book bloggers are helping authors, etc. You probably would've liked it. I know I did.
