Books by the Foot

After I saw pinned on pinterest, I couldn't help trying it out. For a whopping $12.99, ($28.50 with shipping)  I bought 150 books! Pretty crazy! I picked out a few to enjoy right now and put the rest away for gifts. They are definitely used books, but they were in pretty good condition and I think they would work great to stock a teacher's shelf. I figure even if we just read them a few times and sell them to the local used book store, we'll still come out even in the end.

Happy reading!


  1. How long did it take you to receive the books? I'm trying to build my classroom library. I'm excited to try this, i was skeptical though. Lol

  2. Jessica, It only took a week or 10 days for the books to come! I was surprised. I don't think there were 150--I expected 2 boxes and only got one. But there were a lot of books--more than I could have gotten for what I paid at a used book store. I think it would be a great way to build your classroom set. You won't be able to use all of them (though since I bought them, there are other sets to choose from--not just "children's books) but you'll be able to use a lot of them!
