More Book Suppliers February 24, 2009Posted by mrsmerritt in Finding Books, Lessons Learned.
I really don’t know why it took me until February to think of Borders for purchasing books for this program. Maybe it is because the Borders bookstore by my house has no useful books in Spanish. Or maybe it is because the search function on Borders is not user friendly unless you know exactly what you want. The only advantages to Borders as opposed to Amazon is that my school will do a purchase order for Borders but not Amazon. They have a full selection of La Casa del Arbol. Shipping is very inexpensive compared to Amazon. They offer my school a discount.
Overall, their selection of children’s Spanish books is small, even online. That didn’t stop me from submitting a $250 purchase order today.
