Yesterday's Book Purchases

Adding books to my school library's collection is one of the best parts of my job. I have an open purchase order with Anderson's Bookshop, which means I visit the bookshop every week (sometimes every day) to pick up a handful of new titles for my students. I like having an open purchase order with Anderson’s for three reasons.

1. I'm supporting a local independent bookshop.

2. I often call Anderson's throughout the day if a student requests a specific title that we do not carry.

3. Anderson’s is a magical place.

Yesterday afternoon, I selected the first books for the 2012-2013 school year
