November History, Geography, Government, Book Sale List Update...

I am a homeschooling mother with a real passion for books.  It's my mission to rescue great living books and get them in the hands of families that cherish books as much as we do.   Many of the living books I have for sale are duplicate copies of books in our personal library.   Many of these books are no longer in print, have disappeared from the public libraries, and are getting harder and harder to find.  Some of the books are new, most are used, and some are ex-library copies with the usual markings.  We are a smoke and pet free home. 

The books are listed chronologically.  So if you know the time period you’d like to study, you can scroll to that section.  Also, I've tried to code books used in popular curricula.  See chart below.  This is one of the longest lists I've had and there truly are many wonderful books here as we've read several ourselves.  Let me know if you need recommendations. 

There is no minimum order.  I accept PayPal.  I use media mail shipping and ship anywhere in the U.S.   Actual shipping is figured by weight on larger orders.  Please send questions or desired book list via the contact form on the right for a shipping quote.  

Thanks for looking,
