I got my canning booklets from the University Coop Extension office.  I love them.

Check out www.bookcloseouts.com  I think they have what you want but they're charging $20.00 for it.  They have many, just went back to look.

Diane, have you looked here?  The Ball Blue Book is available here.  Also, add some others to your want list, maybe someone that has something will post to you.  I have several books on canning, but I want to keep mine. I guess a lot of other people do too given the number of wishers for the more popular titles.  But if you look around, some of the older books are just as good (canning hasn't really changed in over a hundred years).  Like This One only 2 people wishing.  Or This One published in 1991 with 12 wishers.  What I ended up doing was getting Amazon gift cards for holidays and ordering what I wanted.

If you have a Kindle (if not get the free download app for your computer) there are free books available, might not be available long though.  Home Canning Step by Step Guide  and Every Step In Canning.

Have fun!!
