tons of cheap spongebob sponges sound depressing--you know what else? the other day--actually it started months ago--
whenever I'd hit upon a boxcar kids book, in the catalog I'm working on, I'd cringe and contemplate removing it on my own....ONLY because I have this memory of my second grade teacher reading it outoud to us...and I REMEMBER liking the stories enough...but I remember NONE of the stories...but anyway I HATED the books--the physical books. the covers made me feel sick. I remember only being able to listen to the stories if I put my head down on the desk.
and yes, recently I've thought about throwing them all away--because that's how depressing the covers are.
