Yep...that's the number of books I've bought in a week from local thrift stores. I got a whole brown grocery bag full for $8. That's a sweet deal. What's even better, they were already leveled for AR by their former owner, a teacher named Gerry Jones. I know this because she also stamped each book with her name. Small price to pay for Pony Pals, Boxcar Children, and lots of good nonfiction science books about weird bugs and ferocious sharks. I am determined to find THE book that will light the spark in the students who don't already love reading, and make them the kids that wait for the bus reading a book, fight over reading vs. being car sick on the way to wal-mart, and yes...even have a dusty x-box and books with cracked spines. Oh yeah....I'm ready!
