  •  Re: building the library (15+ / 0-)

    Someone should list the publishers of the titles/writers for us. Often if bought in multiple copies you can get a discount, or free shipping. Explain why we're buying the books directly from the publisher may move them to contribute a few more copies. Buying direct also gives publishers a bigger cut than ordering on line from amazon.

    A break down by ages might help as well.  I know from my teacher/writer friends that boys with weak reading skills can drawn in with bio of sports players and other male hero types, so please think of that while purchasing books. Boys often lag behind girls in reading skills and need all the encouragement we can provide.

    Will do what I ca when I get home.  Already have $500 pledged, and if we raise another $3k before Sunday night, I'll donate $500 more to the general fund and $500 to the library as well.

    Now get out there and hustle to make me write the biggest check I have written all year too e organization, will ya?

    Love to all, peace to all, food and books to all!
