Report From the Book Fair….

1 Comment

Working at the Inly Book Fair always brings me face to face with reality.  The reality is that the Star Wars books sell first – followed closely by Lego-related titles.  Of course, I hand-sell other books and encourage students to try something new, but they still arrive at the check-out desk with the Star Wars Visual Dictionary. Truthfully, our students are great.  They listen patiently as I extoll the virtues of other titles, and often their  parents will buy the books I’ve recommended.  The experience of working at the book fair is a good one.  It’s good to remember what it’s like to be ten. Actually, a few minutes ago I opened the Lego Minifigure Ultimate Sticker Collection, and must admit – it’s kind of cool.
