Our 2014 Used Book Sale {August 1-7, 2014}

It's time for the 4th Annual Online Curriculum Sale Blog Hop! You can find all the details, browse books for sale on other blogs, or add a link to your own post here.

Most of the books in this post were left over from the last book sale in May.  I've reduced the prices and added some new books as well.  I really don't have that much to sell this time, but I may be back later to add some more if I get a chance to go through the bookshelves in the bedrooms.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the items in this post, please leave a comment listing the books you would like, along with your email address. (The email address box is now part of the comment form here at Shower of Roses and it won't be displayed publicly.) I will send you a private email with your total, including shipping, along with my Paypal address.

Shipping will be a flat rate of $4.00 for 1-3 items (if they will fit in a padded envelope) and $7.00 for a box of any size, to help cover the cost of packaging and media rate postage in the United States.

Out of consideration for myself and everyone else participating in the Curriculum Sale Blog Hop, please only request items that you intend to purchase and are able to submit payment for promptly, preferably within 24 hours, unless other arrangements have been made.

Thank you!                                                                                Note:  Most links are affiliate links.

Play 'n Talk (visit website here) I purchased this program when our oldest was in Pre-School, but only used it for a few months before continuing my search for "the perfect program" - discovering a couple years later, after many failed attempts at teaching him to read, that we were dealing with auditory processing challenges and needed special tutoring. This program had been highly recommend by a local friend who used it successfully with all her children.  I've hung on to it for years and thought about trying it again with the younger children, but for now I'm happy with Primary Arts of Language and All About Reading.  It comes with a number of learning games including Ring N Key, Riddles n' Rhyme, Spell Lingo, and more. You can read through their brochure here. It was originally $299 + shipping and handling.  Asking $180.00 ppd OBO. (sold)
