Books for public elementary school students
The Regulator Bookshop is happy to announce that the bookstore is partnering
with the Durham Public Schools to collect books for the schools to give to
their elementary school students. The Regulator is offering a 20% discount
to anyone who buys and donates books to this project, which the schools are
calling the Bookmark Project.
The Bookmark folks have provided a wish list, easily accessible on the
Regulator web site. But they'll take any books suitable for young children.
Donate your favorite books from your childhood, or the books you most
enjoyed sharing with your family.
The project is looking for books in all elementary school reading and
interest levels. Series of books are especially welcome. The Regulator
Bookshop also just added (in the bookstores¹ kids section) a summer reading
display featuring all the 2010 Battle of the Books, with free checklists.

but the drive will probably continue throughout the summer.

Everything -- Save up to $5,000 a year'
This book shows people how to spend much less money on everyday expenses,
with no extra work and no change in lifestyle. The book contains hundreds of
little known tips. It also contains a good deal of 'media literacy'
