  Customize your "I'm HAPPY Reading-Books to You Plan"

This page is in progress!

Here are the steps to creating the ideal plan for your family:

STEP 1: Choose the type(s) of books you will receive and whether you will receive these in the form of actual books to own or in the form of customized recommendations that HAPPY will locate for you at your local library.Type the dollar amount next to your choice(s).

STEP 2: Choose the level of activities to be shipped to you to accompany the books you will be reading together. Tier 2 includes Tier 1 activities. Tier 3 includes Tiers 1 and 2, as well. You will need to select an activity Tier for each type of book your plan covers and add that dollar amount for each type of book. Type the dollar amount(s) for each selected activity tier.

STEP 3: Choose the appropriate shipping. If you have no books to own in your plan, your shipping is free. Otherwise, you will type one shipping amount that covers all books in your plan. Please note that all books must be mailed to a single address. Type the shipping option that applies for your entire plan.

STEP 4: Type in amounts at the bottom of the form and add to get the total amount for your plan. This is a monthly amount that you will be charged automatically beginning today and on this day of the month for the next eleven months.

STEP 5: Complete the age and interest inventory. You may SAVE AS with your answers and send it to lovebooks@happyreading.org or you may fax it to (804)798-3593. If this is a gift, please forward the interest inventory to the recipient family to complete(pages 7&8, can be downloaded separately and e-mailed to recipient family). Expect your first shipment within 4-6 weeks.

STEP 6: Check out using PayPal. You will pay the total due for today at checkout and will be charged the same amount each month for the next eleven months. Or if you prefer, you may pay the entire amount in one lump sum today, less a 10% discount for paying in full. Be sure to save your receipt.
