That's me right now.
I found a REALLY good literature course for so super cheap. My husband responded with, "This is REAL curriculum... like what you'd find in a REAL school." ... um... gotta love him... I'm like, so, what I use FAKE books normally? LOL!
I found a second copy of the text, an in-depth study on the authors in the course, and a grammar/vocab/spelling workbook on Amazon for it, too. I just looked on Pearson, and for the stuff I have now, I would have paid $350 plus shipping for it new off of them. I paid $28.00 total (including shipping)
These books are in such good condition that some of them still have that "tight" feeling that a new book has when it's not been opened and used much at all.
I want to use it.. I am excited to have a "real" literature book (as my husband puts it)...
However... it's very in-dept and is 8th grade level. My older two are 6th and 4th... I wanted to combine them. I know they'd LEARN from it, but that means putting aside what we already are learning off of and making exceptions for their age when teaching/grading/writing.
So... encourage me to put it away and not use it until at LEAST next year if not the year after when my oldest is in 8th grade.
