MIDDLE CAMPUS — Students were elated upon hearing that the insanely well-funded Campus Activities Board will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair on Stokes Lawn later this month. Though the event is still weeks away, boxes upon boxes of the latest Guinness Book of World Records and copies of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules can already be spotted on campus.
“My mom said I can get three books,” said CSON senior Marcus Wright, proudly holding a crisp twenty-dollar bill. “But I’ll probably just get the new Goosebumps book and a Rubik’s cube. Maybe some Smencils. Please don’t tell her.”
Kooky Pens, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters are projected to be the fair’s top-selling items. However, Cool Mad Libs could be another hot commodity, at least according to the kid on your floor who has a gambling addiction.
Yet some students seem to be at an unfair advantage when it comes to the fair. CSOM boys have been spotted waving blank checks that say “Book Fair!” in the memo, and discussing which Captain Underpants novel is superior.
At press time, CAB announced that following the Book Fair, anyone who logs that they read 5 books by the end of the semester will receive a $10 coupon to Pizza Hut and can pick any toy they want from the treasure chest.
