So here's the deal: a good fundraiser needs to be mutually beneficial. It needs to benefit the person who is contributing their hard-earned money to your efforts, which in this case means a copy of Table Talk Math for the Amazon sale price (more or less. They change the price a few cents every week or so). It also needs to benefit the school in a way that it makes sense for the parents to contribute and the school to spend their time. Yes, for every book your school orders, I am going to send $5 back to the school.
For example, let's say your school gathers enough support to buy 125 copies. You email me at email@example.com and tell me that you need 125 copies of the book as part of the fundraiser. I reach out to Wendy, the magician behind the scenes that makes it all work. She places an order for 125 copies of Table Talk Math and you send the check for 20*125. As soon as we receive payment, we turn right back around and send your school a check for $625. There!
No minimum order (although it would be great if your order was greater than 10), no extra paperwork from me, and no concerns about getting chocolates or wrapping paper to people before they melt or go out of style. You get to help parents have more math-based conversations at home and they get to help you raise money for the supplies and activities you have been waiting to pursue.
Not sure if Table Talk Math is a good fit for your parent community? This is what Christopher Danielson had to say:

Fine print: as of now, this is only available to schools in the United States. Sorry folks, but it's just too much to ship international. If you're international and interested, email me and let's talk.
