Scholastic Splurging!

December 2, 2008

I work in a school.  This late our school has been inviting Scholastic Bookfair over to help give our library that much needed push (and also to promote literacy among our parents and students).  It’s been an overwhelming success so far, and the it’s been a very very delightful experience.  I’m so pleased to have them back this Monday, December 8, 2008 (till the 13th). Despite creeping closer to our Christmas program week (aka clobberin’ time week), I can’t wait for next week to come around.  The bookcases have arrived and I’m ITCHING to see what they have in store! (crowbar anyone?)

I did find out though (because the box was a give-away) that we will be selling “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” by JKR.  This is quite amazing. It’s just in the classroom right now (I gave a tip there, didn’t I?). I’m like, “Wow, a LOT of people would love to have these RIGHT NOW.” It’s just sitting there, innocent and hot off international shipment. A box like any. I’m feelin’ like an exclusive distributor :DDDDDDD

So here’s to another 50T (our quota) next week and selling the most books like last year (we overtook the leading branch 😀 by making TWICE our quota!) But it will be much more challenging this time. One of our strong ‘allies’ will become a ‘competitor’. Plus, the parent who bought a good chunk of our books including a Harry Potter box set isn’t around anymore.

But still, fight fight fight!
