Many readers of a certain age are familiar with Scholastic Book Services books, available from order forms in Weekly Readers for school kid affordable prices. Often they were the first books you might personally own. Copies populated our classroom libraries. Although Scholastic still supplies books to school, it is the old style that has nostalgic websites and collector's blogs dedicated to them. Here's a selection of a few I own; most are "new" copies bought at garage sales and used book stores, mostly because the ones I owned were read to rags. Some I never owned but read at school.
Book Count: 1840.
The first Lovecraft book I ever read was from Scholastic. Part of our junior high library. Later found the same edition at Paperback Ranch.
"Mystery in the Night Woods"
First book that really grabbed me.
