Just wanted to pass along a great book fair company that i just finished up. It is from Imagine Nation Books Ltd. called:

TakeHomeBookFair.com

I have done dozens of book fairs in my time and THIS one is by far the easiest and they give a 40% rebate which really cant be matched. It doesn’t take any volunteers either. My school received over $3659 in cash and books! (30% CASH 10% books)

You are absolutely right when you mentioned the other companies hold “captive audience for a gadget fair” It is converse to the “wholeness” of what a book fair should be. And I don’t like the fact that Scholastic dumps their stuff off and leaves us to do all of the work. I pull my hair out each year doing these.

I recommend TakeHomeBookFair.com to everyone if they want excellent durable, up-to-date titles . Their program is by far the newest and most beneficial I have ever seen, not to mention the easiest! It doesnt take a list of volunteers and doesn’t take up your library space.

The account manager I spoke with at Take Home Book Fair was Shane Davis. He was so helpful and was always there if I had a question. He sent 680 Take Home Book Fair catalogs to our school for free and we held the fair for 2 weeks. One other benefit is the teachers get 50% off everything. Each student took one catalog home with them and returned with their orders within our fair timeline.

About 9 days after I send my orders in they UPS shipped our orders (pre-sorted in individually labeled boxes for each student)!! I couldn’t believe it. For the first time I didn’t have to sort through hundreds of books. And I didn’t have to move any tables and racks etc…

I ran the Take Home Book Fair by myself. You can get a free catalog on their website. I am staying with this company. No more pulling my hair out. I will post their website on this blog.

I too hate parts of the bookfair. This year they cut my number of book cases. When I called to complain, the representative told me they did not cut the number of shelves, I received smaller shelves than last year. You could have fooled me - they are the same crappy shelves with dents in the top so large that books will not stay on top, unless you want them to fall off on unsuspecting students.

Oh, very good! I *hate* those feathery pens, and the diplay thingy always falls over. They got smart and didn't send us any this time, though.

And I can't bring myself to do any harm to the troll pens with their anxious little faces.

Burying all the feathered/and or glittery pen sets in the schoolyard?
