Hi, I'm originally from Michigan (Ionia County) so I'll look at my bookshelves and see what I have to send you.  I've been away from home awhile. How far north is Mancelona? UP or LP?    Why don't you put together a "dream" list to help those of us who want to be more specific in sending titles?  Thanks, Terry

Hi Grace!

Go to My 31 Unpostables List Here: http://www.paperbackswap.com/3-FOR-1-OR-Free/list/5515/

and Let Me Know Which Books the Class Would Like from that List :)

Also... If Interested I noticed you were also a Boxer so...

I started a Box and found 10 books of yours I would like. If you would Like to Box I Listed 35 Books (All Postable & Posted) in our box that I would Like to Move so pick AS MANY OF THOSE 35 as you want (by deleting the ones they would not like) OR just box as normal and chose 10 from my bookshelf.

Let Me Know if interested in Box & PM me your address if you only want the unpostables.

Hope this helps :)
Take Care,
Lisa

Grace,

  I am also in Michigan!  Look for Iccitha(i am not sure I am spelling that right) but they always are in goodwill type places and sell books for 50cents. I get a lot that way.  Also, get the teachers to join that will help the school as well. I have gotten a number of teachers to join and they get deals on kids books.  I sent you a credit.  I have tons of books on my shelves.  I am doing 5 books for 3 credits or 8 books for 4 credits. If you want more than 8 we can work something out. Aren't we all looking at some unbelievable cuts if the governor doesn't change his mind.  JEan

Gave you 2 credits.  Give an idea of what you are looking for so I can see if I have anything appropriate.

Grace,

Under the Donation Program drop down here at PBS there are zero schools listed needing help.

Why don't you apply for that. They could open it up, Apple icons could be given out, you would get PBS site exposure, more books. Win/Win.

I will happily send books of my small shelf but I really don't think they are appropriate. Could your students give us a list -- I would be happy to try and find some. My daughter might have some.

 Grace,

I don't have any age-appropriate unpostables, but look at my shelf and see if there's anything you could use. I'll check your shelf, too, since we're both boxers. Maybe we can work something out that way. Also I'm send you some credits so you can check other shelves for books you could use.

Good luck and God bless. Schools every where are getting hit hard with cutbacks and it's such a shame our children have to suffer because of it.

Grace, I remember reading somewhere that the supplier that PBS gets the books for the School Donation Program from, only has books for the younger age groups.  That may be why you haven't heard anything. 

Unfortunately, I don't have any age appropriate books on my shelf or hanging around my house. But I've sent you a couple credits to help your search.  I agree with some of the others though.  If you could get us a "dream list" together, it would make it easier to find books.

I just realized that I was on my husbands account when I posted. I have lots of kids books on my shelf and am doing 5 books for 3 credits or 8 books for 4 credits. If you want more than 8 let me know I am sure we could work out something.  I sent you a credit from his account. He is the one that looks like Abe Lincoln.   Jean

I'm anxiously awaiting your DREAM LIST. If I have anything at all they are yours.
