Welcome to Karen's Living BooksI will be clearing out hundreds of books over 2010 as my youngest student just graduated. As a homeschooler for 18 years I accumulated shelves and shelves of books that now need to be liquidated. I continue to shop and pick up selected titles as well so check back often for the newest additions. Sign up for email notification and you will get an email each time I have a new upload of titles.I carry a large selection of vintage children's books and classics that are perfect for homeschoolers. I also have a number of rare children's titles that make nice gifts for the special book collector in your life. Buy five or more books and I will ship for free. (please note this does NOT include international orders or groups of books, also known as "lots".)I have a condition scale below this item description so you can see how I grade and classify books. I make the occasional error so please feel free to email with any comments, questions, or concerns.
