I love these ideas and can't wait to implement them in my 3rd grade classroom - thank you for sharing!
We do Scholastic book orders in my class (I only do online ordering). I have a "Please Purchase" form at the class desktop computer that students can fill out leading up to the day book orders are due. I tell them the more books THEY order, the more books I can order for the class.
When books come in, I make a big production out of the books our class earned through our points, and do mini book talks as I pull them out of the box. They then get placed in the class library to check out.
It has also helped with the number of kiddos who order. :)
