Book tour

So that’s how the books get to the Book Fair.

Elaine and I are perfectly matched when it comes to maturity. We were both thrilled to see a Scholastic Book Services truck this morning, and more thrilled to see the truck turn to enter a school parking lot just after this STOP sign. We did not, however, attempt to crash the Book Fair. We have our limits. (And enough books already.)

Here is a great Flickr album: Nostalgia for the Scholastic Book Club.

A couple of years ago I used that Flickr album to hunt down some Scholastics I'd read but couldn't remember the names of. https://www.flickr.com/photos/slywy/favorites — you'll see four in the middle (I think — not sure if you have to be signed in as me. The Ghost Rock Mystery, Arrow Book of Ghost Stories, and Deadline at Spook Cabin - I couldn't have described the covers, but once I saw them I was taken back 45 years instantly.
