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!

the one thing I wanted for my kids more than anything else is that they be good readers. And they were. They all love to read. My daughter has plenty of time on her hands now and is a regular visitor to the library which is just up the street from her house.

I to have always loved reading Ads

At primary school I read over 500 books in a year, I won a prize for it too

Now I mainly read in bed at night, but I am usually so tired that I fall asleep and dont read as much as I would like

My baby falling asleep at supermarket clutching her favorite snack with a death grip! Had to pry it out of her hand at the checkout line
