No, it's not the first day of class countdown (though classes start in 23 days, 17 if you don't count weekends). It is the beginning of our fiscal spending year. I was able to begin ordering in July and the first batch of children's and YA books have arrived! A compilation of lists I have been keeping since May, when the money ran out, has come to fruition. I now have a cart of eighty - yes 80 - books to quickly peruse and mark for me before handing them over to the cataloger.
