Scholastic Book Sales...This Takes Me Back

I used to freaking live for when the teacher passed out the Scholastic Book order forms. Or when we actually had the big book fair at school **cue flailing**

I poured over each page, getting my list together to tell the 'rents about the books I desperately needed.

Here we are a few years later, and I still love going through the book order forms that the kids now bring home.

This month, there's one that I'm getting for me:


A Very Vader Valentine's Day activity book + 36 Valentine's Day cards. And it's mine! All mine! (OK - I'll probably share, but I have first dibs.) With sayings like " I love you with Maul my heart!" and "you R2 good to me" how could I say no?

  1. ZOMG. I used to LOVE the day that two sheet order form came out. Pouring through all the Tweet-long descriptions and picking out everything I wanted to read was so much fun. The absolute best time of year, though, was when they converted the library into a book shop with brand new Scholastic books and there was no need to wait for the delivery. I once found a copy of "Megan the Klutz" and I hid it in the library so no one else could buy it before I could lay my hands on some cold hard cash.

    1. The kid came home with 3, 4-page flyers. I was almost giddy.

      I did love that she had already gone through and circled all the books she wanted. :)

    2. :) So cute I almost can't stand it!

      I would hope they would have them in the store. Maybe closer to February?

  3. I cannot tell you how many times I used my "hidden away" money and bought books. I would do it without telling my parents, like I was buying something forbidden...

    1. I am totally guilty of playing the folks off each other to get those extra books I could not live without. Until the next flyer/book sale. ;)

  4. Even better than order form day was the morning that you arrived in the classroom to find the bundle of books you ordered waiting for you on your desk.

  5. Oh this takes me back. I remember I would always beg to pre-order, and beg again for money when the book fair came to the school. My "B-list" books would come home with me that day!
