Dawg, I love "Books are Fun". They used to come to our office but I think the City Clerk chased them off because they didn't have a business license. I used to her the most unique things from them. They do have a website ;)

Too bad they can't come to your office anymore, SB. If you ask a school, I would bet they or the rep would give you a call when BAF sets up a display. I just love to look the display over, with all the books and stuff. Got niece her favorite pop-up castle tent a few years ago, $15! She still loves it, it's her "office". Now this year they have a pink princess castle tent, I almost got that too.... They also have great deals on boxes of all occasion cards as well as popular cookbooks.

Thanks everyone!

I had just "popped in" and then proceeded to forget to log out....a habit I do often!

I am feeling better and have a lot to tell, but won't do it here or now. I still may be a bit sporadic, but for better reasons....mostly busy getting the house ready for Christmas and making presents! But I will be around more than I have been. You all make me smile!
