Yesterday we were actually running early on our way to pick up the kids, and heaven forbid I'm not the mom squealing through the parking lot on 2 tires as the last mom in the pickup line, so we stopped at a used book store. This store has Christian books as well as usually some great homeshooling books. On our tight budget, I'm always looking for ways to make the money go a little further, especially around Christmas and brithdays. I picked up some great stocking stuffers like Superfudge and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing for $1.50.
But my most prized "score" was a huge book called ESL SMART! Ready to use Life Skills and Academic Activities for Grades K-8 by Margaret Bouchard.
This book is probably my "score" book of the year! It has personal life skills activities, pesonal communications, manners and social interaction, personal hygiene and health, safety, literacy, alphabet and handwriting, how to use the library, math, calendar, weather, time, colors and shapes, spatial concepts, directions and world geography.
I am so excited. (I know I'm a dork! I love books) The kids are doing some extra school work today!

I just came up with a new name for myself, while writing about my love of books on my blog ... I'm a "Book-A-Holic", completely and unashamedly addicted to books.

I wish I had a used books store with Christian books and curriculums.
