NOTE TO OUR OUT-OF-TOWN BUYERS: Russo's Books is an official vendor of America's Battle of the Books. This organization features multiple specialized lists from which schools can draw upon. Russo's Books features on its website the "Standard 28" lists used in our hometown, but please know we can provide books from any of the other lists at a discount to both schools and individuals. You may review the various lists here and again, we have most of these titles in-stock and ready to ship.

Teachers/Librarians: Call to order titles in hardback (select titles only). If paying by Purchase Orders please email or fax (661-665-4685) us a copy of the PO.

Note to Parents: Even if your child isn't participating in Battle of the Books, this is a great list of contemporary and classic literature for young readers.
