At the end of the year, our school librarian cleans out extra copies of the books of the month. By next year, he'll no longer need 30 copies of Half-Vampire in the library, so he lets teachers take copies for their classroom libraries. By the time I got to the library, most of my books had already been snatched up. I took these four copies.
Look how well-worn they are! Kids have been reading these things!
*sigh* I feel so real now. :)
