My granddaughter's school really needs more books. The budget cuts in Georgia has really affected the school libraries. An anonymous donor gave me 47 credits because of an old post asking for help. I have been able to order 15 books since last night!! Getting one of each just isn't enough - three or four kids at the same time will want to read the books, especially some of the newer series the librarian requested.

IF I could get some of these books 2 books for 1 credit or 3 books for 2 credits it would really stretch the remaining points.

********ALL BOOKS MUST BE HARDBACK OR LIBRARY BINDING********** paperbacks do not last long enough to even be logged into the system.

I am attaching my list for the school:

"The Red Pyramid" and "The Throne of Fire" in The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan

ANY AND ALL books form the Dork Diaries series by Rachel Renee Russell

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Books #2, 3, 4  "The Magician" "The Sorceress" "The Necromancer" in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel Series

Mudshark by Gary Paulsen

The Day-Glo Brothers by Chris Barton

ANY AND ALL of the Katie Zazoo Switcheroo series by Nancy E Krulik

ANY AND ALL Time Warp Trio series books by Jon Scieszka

ANY AND ALL Young Heroes series books by Jane Yolen and Robert J. Harris

ANY AND ALL Spiderwick Chronicles books by Tonly DiTerlizzi and Holly Beck  (I was able to get two sets of these)

Books # 5& 6 "Syren" and "Darke" in the Septimus Heap Series by Angie Sage

THANKS just remember, ONLY hardback or library binding, please.

This is going to be a tough one.  I'd be glad to help out, but the only HB books on your list that I could find in the PBS system were a couple of the Spiderwick Chronicles.  Send me a PM if you need anymore of those.

Especially Karen S. who I can't find  who requested from DM who was supposed to get credit for the book. Also, Kris H. thanks for the two books......if you want credit, I can give it to you , if you don;t God bless you for your generosity!!

smileyThank you to all those who have gifted the Warren Road Elementary School with books since my request. Having folks do 2-fers and donations has really stretched my points. I still have about 26 to use for the school and would like to get as many books as possible with them. yes

 

We really could use any and all the Time Warp Trio books, any Septimus Heap, Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles. The librarian will be sending me a list for the younger kids after Thanksgiving. Also, any donations are GREATLY appreciated.

 

Folks have been so very generous and the kids appreciate it. Shortly we should have four full sets of the SpIderwick Chronicles!!!!!
