    I'm thinking about reading 100 Ways to Ruin the First Day of 5th Grade, so I looked at it on Amazon and a couple of other places, and they are about $350 a copy????? :eek: Crazy!!!! I'm going to look at our local library. I am baffled why this book is so expensive. I honestly thought it was a typo.

    Wow, I looked too and didn't find anything cheaper than $350. WalMart had it listed for $17 but it's not available for purchase. I wonder if it only had a few printed copies. Wish I had a few copies.

    Ha! Looks like it's gone out of print. Unless you find a library or other used copy, you might be out of luck.

    Be sure to ask your library if it's insured! Ha - no, really, if they don't have it ask about inter-library loans. Many libraries can get it on loan from another library in your county or state.

    Wow. That's amazing!

    Not even a Kindle version either.

    Yay!! I just got it for 6.99 from Amazon!!! We won't have time to start it until the second day of school, so on the first day of school I'm going to have kids write ten things to have a great first day of school. We'll share them on the day we start reading the book. At least that's the plan, lol.

    I bought a used copy off Amazon and I really didn't like it for a teacher read-aloud. In the first chapter, the main character and his sister get into an argument where she calls him a pain-in-the-donkey and goes on about it for a few paragraphs and what it really means. Normally, I would just gloss over a questionable word, but this passage is nearly a page long.

    I read about half the book before I decided it was just a little too sassy and didn't set the tone I want for the beginning of the year.
