A Trip Down Literature Lane

The annual book fair at my elementary school was one of the highlights of my school year. When the big day finally arrived, round and round I circled the tables looking for the perfect paperback or two. Being a nostalgia packrat, I still have most (all?) of my purchases.

I’ve blogged before about one of my fair favorites (Factual and Fabulous).  Posted below are three additional fair gems.  (Do any of these strike a chord with you?)  Later this week, I’ll be blogging about one of them—merging a bit of the past with the present.  In the meantime, enjoy this trip down Literature Lane.
