I found 8 books of "The Secret Garden" of the same edition. I want to order them.

Will the system let me do this?

I seem to recall, in the past, when I tried to order only two books of the same edition of the same book the system would not let me. I want to order 8 books of the same edition.

Is there a way?

It's for my grandson's 4th grade classroom. I have volunteered to give the the teacher 22 copies of "The Secret Garden".

 

Thanks

This option was just added for Gold Key members.  But do go to the Teacher's thread.  It is very common to ask for other members to order extra copies and gift credits  for the books in that thread.  (They have ALL been there.)

If you are nt a gold key member you can just order one at a time....but feel free to buddy a reliable PBS member a credit to order a copy to and have it sent right to you. Happy to help if you need it

I can volunteer to do that. The whole 'Buddy me a credit and I'll use it to order a copy of the book and have it sent to your address'. Just send me a PM if you need my help.

I, too, volunteer to do the "buddy me a credit and then I will order the book and have it sent to you" thing.   Send me a PM if you want me to do this.

I thought I plugged in "watch this topic" and I just came back thinking my post bombed out! Lol

Thank you guys ever so much!!! I will be getting in touch with you all that volunteered. And I'll join the Gold Key the first of the month.

Thank you for all your suggestions, too about going to other areas of PBS.

I feel so blessed! I don't know what else to say, but thank you all so very much!!!!!smileyheart

I'll help too.  PM the ISBN and your addy.  No worries, I'll donate the credit...I like to help schools.

I did this recently with a title to donate to our school, the gold key works awesome.  A pull down box appears and you can see how many books are available in the system and click on the number/amount you wish to order.

If you still need copies of the book, PM me the ISBN you want and your address and I can order a copy for you.  No need to buddy me a credit =)

I'd also be glad to order a copy and have it sent directly to you.  No buddied credit necessary.  Just PM me the info on the book and your mailing address.

Question.....would it just be easier for all of those interested in helping to just donate our credits to a member who responded here that is already a gold key person......then she could just order all the copies at once and have them sent on there way??

I'm going to get the "gold Key" feature on the 3rd of the month when I get paid. From there I will gratefully contact people who have responded to me.

The interesting things about this is: This was the first book I truly took an interest in reading as a child. My Mom read it when she was a child and gave it to me with an inscription. I still have the same treasured book today. A little tattered and torn. When I told my grandson's 4th grade teacher about PBS, and volunteered to get her some books, the very book she asked me for was "The Secret Garden"! I thought to myself how magical it was that my grandson was going to read and study  the very same book, as I did so many years ago. A little dream come true for me. So- this is rather special to me, as you can see.

A special thanks to all.

From what I understand, the Gold Key membership will allow you to personally order as many copies of the book as you want, without the help of other members volunteering to order the books and send them to you. But if you don't want to wait until you're a Gold Key member, then you can use us volunteers right now, no waiting for the third if you don't want to.

Add me to the "send me your address and I'll order you a copy; no need to buddy a credit" list.  I think this puts you up to 10, plus your copy.

I need 22 copies of the Secret Garden and there are 11 available in this one edition. I think I will take you guys up on the offer while I'm waiting for Monday to come around. Maybe, since it is a PBS book, PBS will put more of the same edition into the system after the 11 are gone. I'm hoping anyway. It would be nice for all the children to have the same edition.

Thanks so much. I'm going to contact each of you that have been so kind.

When you say that it is a PBS book are you saying that it is available in the Market? I don't think there is a limit to the number you can order there. If its not the Market, then PBS doesn't control the stock and doesn't put them in the system.

I have two questions here..... Did anyone get a correct address for elone??? She sent me one but it is short one digit in the zip code!! Second......are any of the Goldkey members here planning on ordering for her.....would it be easier we sent that person our credit so they could order the book in multiple quanities.....or just go ahead and order on our own for her? Guess that's three questions.....lol
