Book Fair Mania

How many of your schools have a Book Fair? Well, mine does. It is my favorite week out of the whole school. Well, except for Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break. LOL
This past week my school held its annual Book Fair and I think I almost bought the entire store! The best part about it is that teachers get half off all of the books. So ofcourse I went crazy! There were so many cool new books! That new book smell can be compared to the shark frenzy they go into with the smell of blood.

So, here is another question for yah. How many students actually buy books at the BOOK Fair and how many just buy the posters and cool erasers? I think my Librarian was goinbg to throw all of the pencils and erasers across the room if one more kid came in and didn't even look at the books. There were a few who bought some really awesome books. They were also the same kids who came to our Book Club every morning too, so we knew they would actually read the books they purchased.

At the end of the week I kinda felt bad for her, so I went and spent another $30 on books. I even bought a couple bookmarks too. I thought that since I was going to be a Librarian one day, I might as well start my bookmark collection now!

What do you guys think about your Book Fairs?


  1. I wrote a post about my book fair experiences (as a volunteer mom) that you might enjoy ... my idea of what it would be like and the reality were two different things! Here is the link if you are interested:

    And you get half off????? SWEET!!

  2. Oh ... and I meant to tell you I'm so glad that Paperback Swap is working out for you!!!! : )
