Spacing Out With The Weekly Reader

Weekly Reader Book Club
December, 1984
Last month, I posed scans of a Weekly Reader Book Club flyer that was shared by Shawn Robare on Flickr.  This one from December '84 is also from Mr. Robare.  There are a few Christmas books that were available, and a pretty awesome tote bag with a unicorn and snowflakes.  The first page has the heavy hitters of the mid 80's: Transformers and My Little Pony.  However, the book I would have wanted the most out of these is on page 3: Spaced Out.  How could you go wrong with over 40 zany cartoons about outer space, aliens, robots and spaceships for .75 cents?  [source: Shawn Robare]
