There seems to be no getting around the fact that homeschoolers tend to be book lovers. Yet, buying all of our books at full price just isn’t going to happen for most of us. Borrowing from the library can help the budget, but there are times when you just can’t get the book you want from the library.
Homeschool Library Builder is there to help feed that need for books and hopefully not break the bank in the process.
You will find quite the variety of materials on their website. Each listing provides not only what the suggested retail price of the item is and their price, but also book condition, reading level and how many are available.
You can search by popular curriculum ( AMBLESIDE, BEAUTIFUL FEET, FIVE IN A ROW, HEART OF DAKOTA, SONLIGHT and TAPESTRY OF GRACE.) Or, you can look by category (e.g. fiction, non-fiction, for the teacher, etc.)
Just a quick look through their website has me making out my own shopping list. Some of the discounted prices are almost too good to pass up. We are thinking about doing several of the books suggested for Sonlight in our American History studies. It’s very easy to see what I can find through this website in just a few clicks of the mouse.
