I'm fairly certain these trucks were the sole source of Goosebumps novels.
I didn't know schools still did this. I should connect with my local school to donate money for kids who cannot afford the books.
I remember being embarrassed when I was a kid, pretending to shop for books and not seeing anything I liked.
I see my boy Geronimo Stilton on there. I hope they still sell his books, loved that shit when I was a kid
I was always uncomfortable the day that the Scholastic book orders came in and me and all the poor kids got to watch the other kids open the packages of shiny new books and pencils and bookmarks.
One time I managed to save enough money to order these little tiny woodpeckers that attached to your pencil and "pecked" at it while you were writing. I was so excited to finally have something delivered! When the delivery day came, my order wasn't there. They just stiffed me. It's like they *knew* that I wasn't a good customer. I never ordered anything from them again, so I guess they were right.

Never bought books from the book fair - just bitchin' lambo posters.
Anyone else still able to remember the smell of the book fair?
Dolly Parton has a great service where you can register your kid to get free books. Books are screened for educational value. www.imaginationlibrary.com
. You can make donations there to help. The more I read about that lady, the more I'm impressed.
This was the day at school when I was reminded of how poor I was.. not an awesome day.
I never actually bought books. I bought some of the zany toys and school supplies like a giant pen or a bendy pencil
