Book Club Ambassador is proud to present our new lapel pins for our Book Club Ambassadors throughout the schools.
As Book Club Ambassador is here to promote the concept of reading books and getting out young ambassadors our there to take up the cause in their school. It is our pleasure to present these young Ambassadors with these new lapel pins to show their involvement in the program.
Each Ambassador should contact their team leader and they will get their lapel pins shipped out to them.
We would like to thank, Robert Kim, from Robert Kim Photography for their design that was used for the pin. We would also like to thank The Pin People for the donation of these custom pins. Without them we would not have these wonder pins to give to our children. Please support them by visiting their website at: http://www.thepinpeople.com

Pinterest may be one of the newest of the Social Media sites out there, but it sure did make a splash. There are people that are spending dozens of hours a week on Pinterest and loving every minute of it. This is why today we are going to highlight the book called My Pinterest. Available at Barnes and Noble, you will find this book completely insightful if you are new to the world of Pinterest.
Pinterest is a picture sharing website, that you can share your pictures with followers or everyone on the web. Then if you find a picture that you like, you can then “re-pin” the picture on to your wall.
This book is proclaimed to make businesses explode overnight if used correctly. The company PinsOvernight claimed that the proper use of Pinterest has helped them triple sales within a two month period.
They were able to post the pictures of the custom lapel pins that they created and showcase them to the public. This created more inquiries which led to more orders.
My Pinterest is on sale at Barnes and Nobles for $11.74 in Paperbook and under $11 for the Nook.
I would highly recommend checking it out.
