Do you remember getting the book order forms from school and having BOOK FAIRS. I loved those days. I would look over those order forms for days circling all the books that I wanted. My parents rarely let me get any, but then again I didn't read much as a kid. Mostley I just read Calvin and Hobbes and Elf Quest. Neither one was on the scholastic order forms or book fairs though.

    Those book fairs were amazing. And when the teacher got that box full of books everyone would get all excited. I ordered the magician sets and dinosaur books a lot.

      I loved the old book fairs. There was just something enjoyable about going through those booklets. My school was small and there wasn't much but it was still fun. Plus we used to get out of class to go browse.

        I was just thinking about the book fairs the other day. I remember buying the Ghostbusters storybook and reading it in one evening (which was a big deal for a 3rd grader!). I also remember picking up a book about a boy whose family has to survive in the aftermath of Nuclear war. Anyone else remember that? It was kinda scary topic for kids!

          In the early grades, I got a lot of dinosaur and car/motorcyle books, along with whatever was popular at the time (Ghostbusters, transformers, etc.). The last book fair I went to, I got a bunch of Stephen King books for like $1.50 each. And I always loved going throughthe little catalog we'd get every six weeks or so; always wound up getting something from them.
