What books would you order?  Several of these sound promising....

101 Shark Jokes - Hells to the Yes.  "Why are sharks stupid? They refuse to stay in schools."

Judy Blume books always provided inappropriate reading material - whether it be sex or feminine hygiene, Blume always delivered the goods. In this book there's Lisa "who undresses every night without pulling the shades down."

There's a Dragonslayer book with a cool-ass cover, and a Fantasy Island book with four "scary" stories.  It's a veritable cornucopia of good reads in this November 1981 issue of the Weekly Reader.  But wait, there's more...

Does anyone remember the Cosmic Christmas TV special.  God, it seems like a bad dream.  I'd love to get my filthy paws on that book.

Weekly Readers were enjoyed in classrooms around the country on Friday (in place of your normal boring reading class).  How dare they offer a Bible! In today's public schools, Weekly Reader would get sued six ways to Sunday.

And might I say - worst Frankenstein cover ever.

The Weekly Reader book order from April-May 1982... Dukes of Hazzard folder, anyone?

How to Master the Video Games sounds interesting; glad they thought to add "the" before "video games".

I was a Guinness records freak in the early eighties.  The images of the fat twins on motorbikes is a part of Gen X's collective consciousness.

Notice how they have the Dukes of Hazzard scrap book open to Catherine Bach's page.  Sex sells, my friend.  Sex sells.  Even in junior high.

Here's some covers just for the helluvit.
