For the teachers here, in case you want to add to your educational library. :) Thanks for considering!

Point Counterpoint was used in my second semester English (research) class. Has a lot of essays to quote or debate, etc. and I even remember enjoying it! (And I actually have TWO copies of this, though it will only let me list one in the system.)

Government by the People was used obviously in my freshman (college) government class. Typical textbook, like-new condition.

Collaborative Education to Ensure Patient Safety was used by my husband when he took a course to become a Certified Nurse's Aid. It has no ISBN, apparently written at the school itself. (McLennan Community College in Waco, TX where Baylor University, Hillcrest Hospital, and Providence Cardiac Hospital are.) Great for a teacher in the health care field.

EDIT: Also, I have the duo set of Joy of Sex and More Joy of Sex. Not sure these are textbooks, but they're certainly educational. *LOL* These are hardcover, with dust jackets, in great condition albeit they are a few decades old. Great for those in the healthcare profession, or if anyone is a sexual marital counselor or a paster for counseling engaged or married couples, or the teacher of Sex Ed classes. Or, get it for you. :) Very, very graphic, and illustrated (with drawings, not photos).

I'm out of credits right now, with a wishlist book I *NEED* for our homeschool up, so if you'll buddy me the credit for your order I'll make it a deal. (2 for 1, 3 for 1, let me know what you see. Only one hardback per deal made please, for shipping cost considerations.) Thanks for looking!

I remembered some elementary aged textbooks as well -

Science is on a first grade level.

Observing reading text, by Macmillan, is marked for the second semester of third grade.

Also, PCs for Dummies would make a great computer lit guide for the student learning the computer, whether that be students or family.
