Homeschool Library Builder

"She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain." ~ Louisa May Alcott


If you're anything like me and you love books, you will adore this new online used bookstore, Homeschool Library Builder. Grab your cup of coffee, curl up in your chair, and check out everything they have to offer. They're bringing a wonderful used homeschool bookstore right to you, and as fellow homeschool moms they have great insight into what you, the home educator, finds appealing.

I couldn't browse through the site for this review without finding gems I just had to have. The selection was good, but as with any used bookstore, if you find something you like, grab it. Many of the books I chose were then out of stock, as there was only one copy available. However there may have been the same titles available in different conditions and at different prices. If there is something specific you are looking for, try the search feature.

The site was very friendly and easy to use and the prices were excellent. Right now they are having a Big Bin Blowout Sale and there are books for $1, $2, $3, and $5. I found most of my purchases in these bins and I am a picky purchaser at this point (I already have a huge homeschooling library). These are not just books tossed over into a low price category because no one will want them, they are actually books many homeschoolers are looking to buy. My $1 purchases included the Anne of Green Gables Chapter Book and a Magic Tree House book. For $5 I picked up a Radio Theater version of two Christmas stories by O. Henry, which I am already looking forward to sharing with my kids this December.

There is even a category for those of you using Ambleside, Sonlight, Tapestry of Grace, Veritas Press, Five In A Row, or Beautiful Feet. Click on Search By Curriculum and a list of these will appear. Click on the one you want and you'll see all the books they currently carry for that curriculum. The owners are also happy to track down a book title for you, if they don't have what you need. Having used a few of these curricula myself, and having spent hours on Veg Source and Ebay hunting down books, I have to say this is a wonderfully thoughtful feature!

They offer a frequent buyer program for members of the site. Membership is free and was very quick and painless. Once you are a member, you can begin earning book points. Fifteen book points equal $1 and they never expire. These can be earned by purchasing books, referring friends (In fact, if any of you purchase and list me as having referred you, I won't complain!), and linking their site to your blog. Members also receive an e-newsletter which lets you know about sales, promotions, member products, and free seasonal sites of interest.

They also provide fundraising, free product marketing for members, and a helping hand program to raise funds and awareness for those in need. I have saved this site to favorites and can tell it's one I'll enjoy personally. If it sounds like something that would be beneficial to you as well, spend some time browsing the site and let me know what you think!

I'll update this post when I receive my order.

Promised Update: I received my order last week and am still well pleased! The books were all in the condition described and were packaged well. I will be back!
