When contacting recommended vendors please state whether you need intermediate or middle books.


To order your books, please visit Use the link to the Reading Olympics on the left panel, second box under “Educators.” Next, select the link at the end of the paragraph that says Reading Olympics Books. On the link page you can then select Philadelphia Reading Olympics. All books are already discounted and may be purchased in sets. Titles may also be purchased individually. Shipping and handling charges will be $10.00. All orders are shipped directly to your school via FEDEX. The Towne Book Center & Café accepts purchase orders (School District of Philadelphia vendor number 1012592), school checks or credit cards for payment purposes.

You will be able to order sets of books right away but if you wait until January for shipping, then the total cost will be less expensive as more titles are available in paper back at that time.
