Hello all,

Does anyone know if Cobblestone magazines are postable on PBS?   I have around 9 or so from when I homeschooled my son and just wondering if I could post them here.

Magazines are not postable because they have advertising and cannot be sent by media mail.

These do not have advertising.

Did you do a search for them to see if others were posted?  I know Zoobooks can be posted as they don't have advertising.  However, Kids Discover, even though they don't have it, cannot be (and I have TONS of them!).  If it has an ISBN, they try posting it.


You could always offer them as part of a deal from your shelf.

I would be interested in the Cobblestone and Kids Discover. Which ones do you have available? How many are you willing to send for a credit? Thanks!

I'd try offering them in your sig line and on book bazaar - a deal, like 2 for one, or something, when you order from your bookshelf.

I'd be interested in the Cobblestone magazines, too.  I had never heard of them so googled it after seeing your post and would love to check a few issues out!

I think 1 credit per 2 magazines would be fair,  or 4 credits for all 10 magazines.  

The issues I have (10 total) are:


Irish Americans

Polish Americans

Greek Americans

The Treaty of Versailles, 1919

Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery

Awesome Inventions That Changed Our Lives

World War II Americans in the Pacific

Ellis Island Gateway to America

Manassas Tale of Two Civil War Battles

Those Roaring 20's


Thanks and good luck to all the home schoolers out there.
