I have 1 copy of Vocabulary for the College-Bound Student by Amsco Publication.  They are workbooks and have no writing in them. 

No deals on my workbooks or textbooks, but deals on anything else on my shelf.  I have some kids' books that may be good for the classroom library that I would be happy to do a deal on!

I have some professional books about teaching and motivation as well as a bunch of books for teaching Spanish.  I am willing to do a 2/1 on these or any other books on my bookshelf.  There are also some unpostables in my profile.  You can have as many of those as you want with the order of one book from my shelf.  Just PM me and mention this thread.

Also, I have a lot of children's books that elementary teachers may be interested in. There are quite a few of the hardcover Great Illustrated Classics.   I am willing to make deals on the children's books, "you name your deal"....or I'll send you every children's book I have for 4 credits to cover the cost of flat rate priority shipping.  Again, mention this thread!  :)

These deals are good through Martin Luther King Day.

Have a great new year!

I have multiple copies(about 40)  of the book Malibu Carmie, by Leah Komaiko. This book is an AR book with a 3.3 reading level  (should be higher in my estimation) and worth 7 points. It is MG interest.  These books are all brand new,  never been used.  I will send 2 books for 1 point to anyone who wants a quantitiy of the books. It would make a nice classroom set!  PM me if you are interested!
Sue

Synopsis
Carmie Hoffman is ready for everything to change. She wants to lose 20 pounds and be a beautiful girl. She wants someone to think she's special. She wants to move out of the Valley and stop worrying about her clinically depressed mother, who's tired and sad almost all of the time. Then, out of nowhere, she sees her opening—when her best friend convinces her mother to drive them to Malibu Beach, Carmie's tired, sad, and oh-so-old mom grabs a surfboard and impresses even the locals! That's when Carmie learns that her mom had a secret life before Carmie—a life where she was a Malibu surfer. Carmie knows that she was meant to learn this. That she and her mom were meant to move to Malibu and form a surfing dynasty with some of the surf legends her mom used to hang out with. In her movie notebook, Carmie writes herself a starring role as a glamorous, gorgeous surf star. But not everything is as easy as it is in the movies, and Carmie learns that her mom is a much more complicated and wonderful person than she ever knew.

I have six copies of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom that have a manufacturing defect. Two pages have black marks along the outside edge of the page.  The marks do not block text...Just not real "pretty"..lol

If you search the book and look at the cover image........on the right side there is a pink border with polka dots.  That border is carried throughout the book....and that is where the black marks are located....along that outside border edge.  Left edge on page 8, Right edge on page 13.

Other than that, they are new!

Order one book from my shelf, and I'll include one of these.  If a teacher wants all six( for multiple copies)......order three from my shelf and I'll include them all  !!!

PM me  to claim freebie(s) and so I can update this post!!

Order one book from my shelf and I'll include this great story as a freebie!
