I am very excited about a website I found today while looking for some reviews. I am constantly looking through catalogs and deciding I *need* every professional book. However, professional books are expensive and I can’t afford to buy them willy-nilly. A co-teacher and I are considering purchasing a fairly expensive professional resource but aren’t sure if it will be suitable for our classes. They seem to frown upon returning professional resources after perusing them, but what else can I do? However, while looking for the author’s website I found a site that publishes reviews of many, many professional books and was pleased with the reviews I read. Most of the reviews are written by education professors with many years of experience in the field. Check it out!
This weekend, a friend and I volunteered at the Scholastic Warehouse Sale. It was a great way to earn some money to spend at the sale, and spend I did! I spent my voucher plus a good deal of money. However, I purchased approximately 60 books for 1/3 of their retail price. Needless to say, you can expect a lot of reviews over the next few weeks! I was lucky enough to purchase a lot of very new titles, specifically a few mentioned on some mock Newbery lists. :)
