The Book Samaritan

I just found out about this very cool ministry for Homeschool families who are strapped for cash to purchase curriculum materials with.

I know that it's hard for many of us, single income families, piles of kids, you know the drill.

One thing that I've sort of had in mind is saving my old books as we outgrow them, and passing them along at some point to someone who needs them. I'll know the time and place when it is right.

Meanwhile, here it is, being done on a much grander scale: The Book Samaritan

I hope that by spreading the word on my blog, someone who needs this ministry in the future will benefit. Or that someone who can donate to this good place may feel led to do so.

I, for one, am glad to know that it exists.

That's wonderful!

I've been getting books for next year's curriculum thanks to Paperbackswap.com. A few weeks ago I figured out what books we would need and started looking for them on the site. Whatever they didn't have I added to my wish list. I have received 14 books for next year's curriculum already!
