UPDATED: Doing all we can for the Ballou High School library

We are getting ready to shut down this weekend the Book Fair for Ballou High School in Washington DC but wanted to thank everyone who has purchased books so far. We have about 150 books headed to DC from the amazon wish list and appreciate so much each and every book that has been bought. (As you can see, the kids are delighted with the books that have already arrived.)

In case you have not bought a book yet, there are some titles left on the wish list that we would especially like to see bought. These are all series books and as you know, it's awful when you are left hanging by a cliffhanger or receive the last books in a series and not the first ones! So please take a look at these books, or, of course, feel free to purchase anything from the list. We will likely open it up again, briefly, for Cyber Monday, so keep that date in mind as well.

Books are the best gifts in the world and the kids at Ballou High School, along with librarian Melissa Jackson, are so very happy that you have sent so many of them to fill their library's shelves.
