Ballpark number....how much should I expect to pay in all and per books/sets of books. I checked my room and I have a few books but not a lot and one of my teammates gave me some local places to get books. I'm glad I saw the books because now I'm like "Ohhhh 4th graders read RL Stine and the like" my sped kids were in picture books. I've seen a few craigslist ads but I don't want to wear out my budget on not good deals. I saved a lot of money this past year so I'm allotting myself a back to school budget. Thankfully all supplies like markers, crayons, posts etc will be provided. One craigslist ad had 10 books for $20. Is that a good deal? I saw a few classrooms with TONS of books so to me that doesn't seem like a good deal becasue that's just barely scratching the surface and if I do that and get 50 that's $100 when the libraries I saw had hundreds of books so that seems like a money waste/not good deal.
