Not the most original title but the book contains some great information and images. The cover  image seen above is from an original copy held in Special Collections and Archives at the James Branch Cabell Library, VCU Libraries.
This great resource is now available on Google Books.

Some examples of what you'll find inside:

Really informative post ! We loved the combination of the onsite and online bookfair. The combination was easy to use and gave our parents more flexibility to support our bookfair. I loved the option of having our online orders delivered to our school free of shipping. This service was greatly appreciated by many of our families, allowing them to feel they could order more books through the online book fairs
