Remember all the hoopla over the Subway Contest
that many complained snubbed homeschoolers a while back?
Well, although it ticked me off a bit, enough to e-mail
them, but not enough to get my knickers all in a twist
and boycott them or anything (we really don't eat there anyway).
I was a bit upset that Scholastic Books was involved, and I did write to them
to let them know how it made me feel (I did not threaten to boycott them,
just that I was a bit disappointed in their involvement).
Well, I still have not had any reply from Subway (maybe they know I don't go there
enough to bother with me?) but I had an immediate response from Scholastic Books.
An apology and a hope that I would continue to spend my hard earned dollars with them.
They also asked if they could send a book to my children (or child).
I replied, that my daughter loved their books, and would surely enjoy a new book
if they sent one and forgot all about it.
This past weekend it arrived in the mail. We were very excited because this book was on our "we really want to own this book" list.

I would have linked to the Scholastic listing for the book, but I couldn't find one.
Isn't it nice to get surprises in the mail?
