Hi my name is Sean. Mostly I came on PBS for reading books, but I also am a book seller on some aution site.

I come across textbooks and homeschool books all the time. Some are last years version, but still great and useful.

Just PM me if you are looking for certain books. I will keep an eye out for them and post them here as I get them. Just keep an eye on my posted book list.

Thank you, Sean

Happy Holidays

Hi Sean. Welcome to our humble home. =)

Here's one more way to find out what folks are wishing: If you check the club wishlist, you can enter your books' ISBNs and see if they are wished-for.

I would be interested in any books recommended for the younger and middle aged student in Mystery of History by Linda Hobar. I have the MOH book itself (volume 1), but would like to obtain books recommended to supplement it. I have a lot of these titles on my wish list and they are tagged; just enter "moh" or "mystery of history" into the search box and it will bring up everything tagged that way.... Be sure that your results box is on "all books" so that it brings up books that are NOT yet in the system. :)

Another set of books I'm interested in obtaining I've tagged "creation science unit study," and I'd be interested in almost anything by Ken or Mally Ham. Most notably, A is for Adam and D is for Dinosaur.

I invite you to take a look at my wishlist, as well as the wishlists of all who post here in the homeschool forum. That's a great start anyway. :) [EDITED to add: I don't have any credits to order anything right now myself, but just said this as an idea of things to look for if you're hoping to cater directly to homeschoolers. And thanks!]

You may also want to take a look at the book lists for Ambleside Online and Old Fashioned Education.  These are both free curriculum plans that many people use and would love to have in real book form.  I have many from Old Fashioned Education on my wish list.

You're welcome!

It is so beautiful though that I would rather have the book in hand, KWIM?
