This group is new for me.  I'd like to get my hands on some of these books, but can't seem to find any.  I can't find a tags list for just Ambleside books.  Can someone guide me?

We are doing those years of AO as well. I have all of them on my Wishlist and then when they come up I grab them. That's the only way I've figured to do it. They're in high demand!
Anyone else have a better idea?

I guess that's what I plan on doing as well.  How do you know how far down on the list you are?

When you look at your Wishlist there is a little grey circle with an exclamation point in it under each book. If you hold your mouse pointer on that it will tell you.

Look them up by individual title and put them on your PBS wish list. Since some are so old they are published by different publishers so you can find multiple ISBNs for each title for those, so you could put numerous ISBNs for each title on your wish list and take whichever comes up first., then delete off the duplicate books on your wish list as you get each book.

If you are also bookhunting at used book sales sponsored by libraries, you can often find many of those titles because they are long in print and older. I used to carry a computer print off with me of the AO titles to the library sales to collect what I was looking for. Often the books are 50 cents or $1 (less than the 'cost' of swapping here on PBS).

(I ended up not using AO but we still read many of the titles in our HSing journey.)

Good luck!!

Thanks so much for your help.  I think I'm getting the hang of it.  I will start going to the library sales.
