"Sink" Into a Good Book

Every year I put on my kids elementary school book fair.
I LOVE IT!
It is Trash to Treasure style with the fair being made up entirely of used books. (And you wondered why I love it) I sell them to the kids, teachers, and parents at $1 and $2 each.The fair is March 2nd through the 6th but I will be collecting age appropriate books from now until the end of the fair. If you have any children's or young adult books collecting dust I would be glad to take them off your hands! Come March you can drop by and pick up some "new" reading material at the fair...I promise you won't be dissapointed.

My mom has two big book shelves full of books. I don't know if she'd be willing to part with any though. She loves her books.

That is the coolest sounding school book fair I have ever heard of Amy. The one that I always work at every March, at my kid's old grade school, is one of those where Scholastic sends them everything and we sell it at whatever price is marked on it.
Heidi is right about me haveing tons of books, but I think I will go through them and see if there are any that I can bear to part with. I'll bring them to you if I do.

You are Amazing! I think it's so cool that you do that for the school. I don't really have many young adult books around yet. And my kids have not taken great care of the books. But I have books from when my brothers were little 45+ yrs old.. I buy the kids books through the scholastic book fairs.
