I love scouring my local Goodwill for children's books for my classroom. They have such good prices! I also find other great books at Goodwill, just for me. I got my copy of Marley and Me for $0.99, a first edition of Mosaic of Thought (see my post on reading comprehension here) and Scholastic's Teaching with Favorite Kevin Henkes Books for $2.99 each. Steals! But, I've found something even better, something this busy mom of two/3rd grade teacher/going back to college lady can really get behind - Goodwill Books online!! That's right, Goodwill Books has a website, www.goodwillbooks.com where you can go online, search for books (children's, adult, textbooks, you name it!) and get great prices. They don't always have every book I want, but when they do, I get excited. I'm not sure how they figure out the shipping costs, but they charged me $1.19 per book. But when I'm spending $0.25-$0.99 on each book, it still ends up being great deal. The warehouse is actually in Hillsboro, OR, a western suburb of Portland. So I feel like I'm helping out my local economy and get to shop while sitting on the couch!
Check out all these books I recently got. You'll never guess how much I paid...
No guesses?? $12.75!!!!! What a deal. Head on over to goodwillbooks.com and tell me what kind of deals you find!
