Homeschool Books on My Shelf

I love books. I love reading. I love homeschooling. So, therefore, I have read a lot of homeschooling books. And have owned quite a few over our 19 years of homeschooling. Although, if you count homeschooling from birth, it has been 24 years.

Below are the homeschool books currently on my shelves. The list changes a lot, though. We now have more high school books, than younger grades. I have gotten rid of quite a few of our Dr. Raymond & Dorothy Moore books, as they deal with getting started. One I found especially useful was Better Late, Than Early, it’s great of you have young boys.

How to Write Your Own No Cost, Low Cost Curriculum was another favorite of mine in the early years.

These are the homeschool books currently on my shelves.

My favorite place to trade off books and get more books is PaperBack Swap, link is in the sidebar.
