I worked at our neighborhood school's book fair for two hours today. I forgot how much I love the smell of bookbinding glue and helping kids earnestly showing me the three dollars they brought find a sale book (most of the books are sold at cover price, but I'm okay paying that since the profits help the school). The volunteer schedule was a little shorthanded tomorrow, so I'll be there 8 AM - 2 PM. Book straightening and student wish list assistance FTW! Even better? Next week is book fair at Laurel's school.
Also: rain? We have enough. Please go rain somewhere that needs it. Thank you. All this cloudiness makes me want to sleep and carry the cat around in a baby sling.
Books purchased today at book fair:
- Clementine, Sara Pennypacker - cute chapter book about a free-spirited third grader, first in a series.
- The Dragon of Lonely Island, Rebecca Rupp - picked it up on sale for $2, if you want me to buy you a copy leave it in the comments.
- Tink, North of Never Land, Kiki Thorpe - another Disney Fairies chapter book, Laurel's wild about them and they have glitter on the cover.
- Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium Magical Movie Novel, Suzanne Weyn - I bought this to get the free poster with purchase because Natalie Portman is cute. If Laurel isn't interested I'll sell it on half.com or something.
