I was at my local Barnes & Noble today before work and I noticed that ALL the holiday children books were on clearance for 50% off! Even the new Fancy Nancy Christmas book (my daughter loves Fancy Nancy) that just came out this past November! If I hadn't bought it for her for Christmas, I definitely would have picked it up today. I think its something worth checking out. Books make great Christmas gifts. There were a lot of other things on sale/clearance, but I had to get to work and didn't have time to check them out. Hopefully I'll get a better look tomorrow.
