Also: any Paperbackswap users out there?  consider donating a credit or two to their Books for Schools program. So far this year they've completed donations to 11 schools with another dozen or so to go.  I donated 3 credits to this very good cause.

Another Also: just saw that Guys Lit Wire is running another book fair for a school in DC.   It is through 11/28/11 though I bet if you ordered a book on Tuesday they'd still like it! 


  1. I've got four grandkids ages 5,5,7 & 8..they'd love to play with this stash of books. And I'd be doin' just fine with the older ones.

    Thanks for playin' along..good luck to both of us!

  2. The Art Activity packs are awesome! The only reason I didn't add them to my own list was because I ran out of imaginary money! Good luck!


  3. Great picks for all ages. I kept my list pretty grown-up, but I'm a big kid at heart!
