Fun Friday: Vintage Book Club Flyers
I remember being so excited when the teacher passed these out—especialy if it was my 5th grade teacher, Mr. Chavez, since I had a MAJOR crush on him…I would carefully place the mailer in my book bag and then as soon as I hit the door to our little pink house (yes—I grew up on an Air Force Base in a pink house) I’d sprawl across my bed trying to decide which books to order. …
And then the long wait. Waiting, Waiting, Waiting…until the marvelous day when the book shipment arrived! It was like my birthday and Christmas rolled into one! I felt so grown up—especially because if I remember correctly, these were marketed as “teen books”—and I was only 10, after all!
If you shared my grade-school obsession, you will love these pictures!
