i'm just an educator stumbling upon new ways to do my job better (i hope)

826National Five Books, Five Authors Subscription

$250 is a lot of money for five paperbacks.  But they're signed.  And it's for a good cause.  (No tax benefit, since I'm technically buying something, but I'm considering it a donation anyway.  $250?  Justified.)  826National is a network of writing centers, started at 826Valencia in San Francisco by Dave Eggers, et.al, when they founded McSweeney's.  It's a great cause, connected to some great writers, producing great work, with a great store.  My latest means of support: the Five Books, Five Authors Subscription.  Might cut into my grocery budget next month, but I'll be satiated by books until June...
