Do you live in the state of Pennsylvania? I found a wonderful book entitled The Book of Trees by William Grimm at the Goodwill. This book published in 1957 has that amazing heft and weight that makes all old books attractive. The illustrations (see photo below) are informative and engaging. So it was with much anticipation that I sat down one night to dip into a book that looked like it would be a lifelong friend for our library. Much to my disappointment this book was written specifically for Pennsylvania. Even as I write this post I am reading parts of the book to see if I can find a way around the state specific information. But alas, I think this would be a perfect book for someone in the state or at least in the Midwest. So let me know if you would be interested in this wonderful book. I would be happy to send it your way.
Secondly, I would like to offer a two for one giveaway on paperbackswap.com. Select one book from my bookshelf and leave a comment to let me know the free book you would like from my bookshelf. If you don't have a paperbackswap.com account, sign up for an account, make sure you note that I referred you and I will give you the credit I would receive for the referral. You can use the credit for anything you want not just my bookshelf.
Lastly, I have the first issue of Secular Homeschooling Magazine. I would be happy to send it to someone.
