Before Amazon, there was Scholastic

Chap points us to a collection of Scholastic Press book covers on Flickr.

Man, I was a happy little geek when the Scholastic book shipment arrived. I get a much milder variant of that buzz whenever a box from Amazon appears at my office, but it’s not the same. :-)

Back in the day we had to bring forms home for our parents to sign, and return them with a check. These days, of course, it's all online.
