Hi y'all.  First, thanks for taking the time to click over and read this post.  I teach 4th graders on a Native American reservation.  My students are the sweetest kids you will ever meet.  

I am working on building my classroom library.  I have 3 PBS points right now and am looking for any "2 for 1" deals.  How do I know when people start to offer them?

Thanks and Blessings,

Hi Susan,

I am looking to reduce the size of my classroom library.  I have posted a bunch of books and can offer anything you'd like 2 for 1.   I will be adding more as I find them.  Many of my books are professional books or spanish childrens books.  I will even throw in some of the books that I was unable to list if you tell me your preferences (grades taught,,,etc).  Most of my elementary books have been unused, as I've built a collection and only teach high school.  

The best place to look for book deals is the Book Bazaar.  People will list deals.

Just send a PM and let me know what you are interested in.

Yes, the rules say that book bazaar is the place for posting deals. Sometimes people have thier deals listed on their sig lines, but not always. Almost everyone who offers a deal posts it in the Bazaar.
