With budgets super tight, I've braced myself for the inevitable: Zero dollars for a book budget. I took a deep breath and said to myself this is going to have to be a creative year.....encouraging students to read without new books.
Well I received a HUGE blessing today. Verlean Singletary, owner of the online bookstore Da Book Joint donated all of
these books today. I was was screaming when I opened the boxes. Paul
Langan's Bluford Series, Ni-Ni Simone, Reshonda Tate Billingsley and
many many more books by teen authors were donated. Please check out
DaBookJoint.com to purchase African-American teen and adult books.
