Hi there!

I am seeking class sets of books that would be appropriate for 5th-6th graders.  We don't have many sets of core lit and we need them.  Short of going to Donors Choose or buying them myself from the book order, I was wondering if anyone had some available.

Please PM me if you are willing to deal or have any sets to offer.  Thank you.

When your a PBS Gold Key member they waive the multiple book shipping charges. I got ""The Secret Garden that way along with some donations I asked for from Book Bazaar. They were all paperbacks and it cost me about $20.00. It was worth it to me. You also can order paperbacks from Amazon. Some are new @ .01 cent to $1.00 a paperback. Shipping is $3.99. It depends on how many you want.

How big of sets do you need and any preferred titles?  We're downsizing and moving a small school where I volunteer, and we might have some surplus that suits your needs.  I would need some credits to cover postage.

About 35 copies per set if possible. Not sure about titles. But if you let me know what the titles are, I will let you know.
