It’s that time of year when vendors have started calling with these “Fantastic” offers on books of the “greatest” quality. Okay fine, usually they are pretty good, and sadly I only have so much money to go around. So what to do…
I’m only given a limited budget, actually I have none. So my choices on books are split into two different piles: should and want. I realize this isn’t a difficult task, but trust me, it is.
Right now, I have two vendors and I can’t decide what really takes precedence. I have those particular shelves in non-fiction I would love to stock but I can’t always get what I want.
Kids love animals. Some history. Short books. Myths. Sports. Well, my kids do anyways.
At this point I’m sorting through titles on topics we don’t have any other books on:
– Chinese Mythology
– Endangered animals in Australia
– Living with ‘X’ disability
You get the picture… And then I go through those books again and start choosing which ones I need to put back in the vendor box.
Some of my hardest choices are made in the span of a week because I can’t stand keeping these boxes in my vicinity longer than I have to 😦
