One of the main things I have been doing school-wise while on vacation in San Diego (ummm, ok, the only thing) is collecting books for my new and improved classroom library. I really want to have a good selection of books that reflect the demographics of the school I will be teaching at next year.
I did pretty well over the last week or so.
These I liberated from various bookcases in my childhood home.
Why yes, I did read a lot of series books when I was younger. Why do you ask?
These I purchased from our local friends of the library bookstore (for $16.25!!)
These were bought from the normal bookstore. I know, I know.
And these are the result of a giddy spree at a local used bookstore. This tab was very kindly picked up by my mother, for which I can’t thank her enough.
With all of these and what I already had I think I’m well on the way to an excellent classroom library.
Wait. What’s that you say? How am I getting the books from San Diego to North Carolina? Umm. Good question.
