Observations

I think the Scholastic Book Order people are getting smarter. When I was a little girl, those wonderful little book fliers were filled with individual books, costing just a couple of dollars each. Now, they are mostly filled with expensive multi-book sets costing $10-20 each, and quite a few hardcovers are also included. They have quite a racket going. As if I need my kids bringing home $50 worth of books at a time into our already overflowing book collection. Sigh. All 6 of us have a weakness for books. Don't even get me started on the school book fairs.

Books are a huge weakness over here too! I know we don't "need" any more but I can't seem to come up with any reasons NOT to add to our collection. There are worse things to collect, right?

Amen.
We just completed our first order for this 4th Grade year. The "sets" are tempting.
