Our 2015 Used Book Sale

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who purchased books and/or participated in this year's link up! I'm no longer accepting orders for any of our remaining books below, since I won't have the opportunity to get back to the post office anytime soon. God bless! 

It's time for the 5th Annual 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.

I didn't have enough time to sort through all our bookshelves over the weekend, but I do have a few boxes of books to sell this summer and I pulled a few more off the shelves after we got home from golf camp this afternoon.

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 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.

To keep it as simple as possible, I have decided to once again charge a flat rate to help cover the cost of packaging, postage, and any Paypal fees. This year it will be $5 for 1-3 items and $7.00 for 4+ items. 

Please only request items that you intend to purchase and are able to submit payment for promptly. I've disabled comment moderation for a few days so that the comments/requests will show up immediately. I will also update the post as quickly as possible with "sales pending."

Thank you!
