This is our first year with Sonlight and my daughter is enoying the Core History/Literature 3/4 program.

I have purchased this year's core books directly from them.  I know I could have saved a bundle if I had discovered them sooner and built our library from used books. 

So, for next year, I am trying to save $ on used titles rather than getting them new from Sonlight and just get the teacher manuals and consumables from them instead.  Now I heard you can rent the books. 

  • Has anyone done this and have a referal to a company that rents these?
  • How do you normally stock your shelves for next year's curricula?  New or Used?
