A closing book fair musing; solicitation to donate hardcover Harry Potter books to school libraries.

One thing I don't like: book fair items are sold at cover price unless otherwise marked down, so the value of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is $35 from the percentage of sales we are allowed to pull in product for the school. Our local elementary school has 500 students and one copy of that title in their library.

So, reader participation time: if you have a hardcover copy of any of the Harry Potter books sitting around that you wouldn't mind parting with, call a local school and ask if their library wants it. Odds are you'll get a very friendly reception. Our local school's library could use a few extra copies of Chamber of Secrets, Half-Blood Prince (we donated one a few years ago) and Deathly Hallows if you'd like to pass them along to a school I'm involved with. As usual, I do offer my skilled services in thanks for your donation.

(Next week is book fair at the school Laurel attends but I'm not as involved with their PTA, so I won't write much about it.)
