Someone (Dan K, then Lulu) just recommended this website, and their "first pair free" scene. So I did it - how could free glasses be wrong, right?
Their motto? "Buying glasses from Coastal.com is awesome".
What I did wrong though, is order a pair from the very first page of the site, without spending any time paging through and seeing other glasses they have. I think I could have found something really good, but at least what I got is funny:
Do you see that? IT'S DIVISION AND MULTIPLICATION SIGNS. These are the math teacher-est glasses you could ever imagine (and no I didn't notice when I ordered them). I think they're funny enough for tons of at-home Kindle reading, and maybe even out someday*. Maybe.
Anyway, in general, I'd like to recommend Coastal as a pretty good source for cheap-y (I think mine were $8 or 9, total) regular glasses. Mine came with the right script in less than a week. Maybe just be a little more vigilant than me, double check everything, including weird symbols in the corners.
*the only time I need to wear glasses "out" is at work, which is not "out" or like, if I go to the park to read. I don't want you guys to get the wrong idea about me. And glasses.
