I Have a New Toy!

When you were a kid did you ever order from those Scholastic Book Club order forms?  Do you order from then now with your own child?

Well, every time you do, you earn bonus points for the teacher.  Somehow I acquired 24,781 points over the years.

That's a lot of points.


So many points, in fact, that I ordered this and I still have about 5,000 points left over.

Do you know what this is?
Yep!  It's my new iPad!


I found a great apple green cover for it (no apple pun intended - really) and I am set to go.
(See how it goes with my little old green iPod?

Are you hoping for one of these under your Christmas tree this year?


  1. Okay I will jump in..I am soooo

    Enjoy for me also!!

    Hugs Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

    PS..yeah Lime green!!

  2. WOW, lucky you! I loved scholastic when I was a kid. Mum always let me order books and when my girls were in school good old Scholastic was still around.

  3. How fabulous! I'm having IPad envy over here but I am "thankful" that you have such a fabulous "new toy" to play with. It's like an early Christmas. ;-)

  4. Oh my goodness! That is wonderful! Congratulations, Sweet Bee!

  5. Lucky duck! I used to live for the Tab / Scholastic book order times when I was a kid - even when I was in high school. We also had books from the Weekly Reader book club. Can't you tell I love a book more than anything? I'm seriously thinking of getting a Kindle. I hope you enjoy your iPad - it's a well deserved reward.

  6. No way!! You had enough book points for an iPad? I am so jealous and so proud of you for hanging on to those points!! Scholastic must be hopping mad - I'm sure they never thought anyone would save that many points! Good for you!


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
