Twice a year I organise a book fair day at school. Shaun of Books 2 You, brings his collection of books and displays them in our school hall. Shaun's books are very cheap as he visits the UK and the USA twice a year where he buys remnants directly from the publishers and then imports them into South Africa. Shaun's books average from R45 - R120. That's about $4.50 - $12 US.
We had a two day book fair in February and this one from the 25th July to the 26th July.

Books for preschoolers and grade 1 & 2.
The tables contain non-fiction books and the shelves fiction. Hundreds of titles to choose from.
I usually spend about R7,000 at each book fair, but when Shaun arrived for this one I had almost depleted my budget for books, so I only spent about R1,200. The learners on the other hand bought almost R10,000 worth of books, that's an awful lot of books at those prices.
