Books, Books, Books, and more Books.

As a homeschooling family there are never enough books, at least that's what I keep telling my husband!  This year I had the opportunity to get some amazing Scholastic Books, for just the cost of my time and I jumped on that!  I had so much fun being surrounded by a warehouse full of books, and helping customers find just the right book, and shelving thousands of books and in return I left the warehouse at the end of my scheduled hours with 6 large case boxes filled with books! 

According to Library Thing I got 226 books, but in reality I got so much more since we donated a bunch, gave a bunch away to some friends, and then there were some that I simply didn't add since they weren't books for reading!  However, those 226 books that I got were really so much fun, and the boys are all excited to get into reading them! 

Some of S's favorite books were: Geronimo Stiltion Wild Wild West, Heroes and Villains of the Bible, Lego Ninjago Character Encyclopedia, Star Wars Folded Flyers, and Geronimo Stiltion Creepells Von Cacklefur Return of the Vampire. 

Some of B's favorite books were: How Rocket Learned to Read, Magic Tree House Dinosaurs Before Dark 20th Anniversary Edition in color with 12 extra pages of content, Lego Harry Potter Characters of the Magical World, Lego Ninjago Character Encyclopedia, Scholastic Discover More Animal Babies, Moody Monsters, and Geronimo Stilton The Dragon Prophecy ( Book 4 in the Kindom of Fantasy series).

Some of L's favorite books were: Press Here, Ten Little Caterpillars, Llama Llama Holiday Drama, Little One We Knew You'd Come, Dinosaur Bites, and The Littlest Elf. 

As you can see their favorites are varied, and they have lots to choose from.  If you'd like to see a list of the books I brought home, you can check out my library thing here just click the Bookfair 2012 Unshelved list and you'll see all the books I got for my time!

Their next large sale should take place in May and if you've never been I highly suggest you go this time around if there's a warehouse near you!

Birbitt Thinks books are awesome, and there's always something new to read in our home!


  1. Great post! Thank you for sharing.

  2. I am with you, one can never have enough books. I love the Scholastic e-books and love when they do their $1 sale a couple of times a year! I went to one warehouse sale before. It was fun.

  3. How fun! I love volunteering at the Scholastic Warehouse sales, but didn't get to do it this year. Great haul, thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks for sharing all the great information!
