Love Books? Looking for a Good Sale?


The Homeschool Library Builder is an online book store that serves the homeschool community.  It is owned by two veteran homeschoolers, and they understand the need to find affordable books to fill our shelves.  I don't know about you, but I love seeing bookshelves full of things for my kids and myself to read.

Now through May 31st, Homeschool Library Builder, HSLB, is having a 25% off sale on all items.  No coupon or discount code is needed, and you can even use additional discounts or coupons if you have them with this sale.  If you become a member, you will receive one bonus point for every dollar spent.  Fifteen bonus points counts as $1.00 which you can use towards a future purchase.

In addition to the current 25% off promotion, if you make a $25.00 purchase, you will receive Of Earth and Sky: Spiritual Lessons from Nature, a $4.99 value, at no additional cost.  It includes literary selections that highlight the "seven virtues as taught through nature."

Some examples of the products available are The Tree and the Trail (softcover), usually $11.95, HSLB price $6.50, PLUS an additional 25% off.  There is a book about Buzz Aldrin called, Reaching for the Moon; the list price is $12.95.  HSLB's price is $4.99, PLUS you can take an additional 25% off.  That is amazing!

The page for each book gives a good description of what the book is about, whether it is soft or hardcover, the intended age range, and the condition of the book.  They tell you how many are available and how much it costs.  Discounts, like the 25% off promotion, are taken at checkout.

HSLB will even search to find a book you may be looking for if they don't have it at no extra charge.  Suppose you heard of a great book years ago and have been searching high and low for it to no avail.  Simply give HSLB the information, and they will do everything they can to locate it.

The different categories of books they have are fiction, non-fiction, activity books, award winners, classical literature, "for the homeschool teacher," "helping hand," holidays & seasons, inspirational, science, and story books.  You can search by curriculum, age, geographically, and even vintage and hard-to-find books.

Say you are using a curriculum you borrowed from someone, but it doesn't have the readers that are supposed to go along with it or maybe you are using a study guide for a particular book; chances are HSLB has it or can locate it for you.

There are American Girl books, My First Little House books, and other historical fiction books.  Under the science category, there are books about animals and nature, explorers, geography, and inventors and inventions.

As I perused the website, I was very impressed with the selection of books that are available and the prices.  I am sure I will be back to buy some things as we begin our next year of homeschooling.  I think you will be blessed if you check them out.

Under their "About Homeschooling" tab, there are biographies of  "Heroes of History," interactive lesson units about art topics, and links to various sites that can help with your homeschooling.

HSLB can be reached at Flower Mound, Texas, 75022.  Their phone number is 800-718-7986.  Their email address is info@hslibrarybuilder.com.

DISCLAIMER:  I did not receive any products to try.  I am simply providing a review of their website and sale.
