Watching the Mailbox

I am a member of Paperback Swap. I love, love, love this site. If you're not familiar with PBS, be sure to check it out. I also love used bookstores, and frequent them often, but I have found quite a few books through PBS that I can never find used around here.

I have gotten a lot of great books through there, but I still have a wish list a mile long. For some reason, several of my wish list books have come available recently. Here's what's currently heading to our house, and the reason I'm stalking the mailman.

Animal Habitats -- On Land, Ponds, Rivers, Oceans (Draw Write Now, Book 6)

I thought this would be great to have for our science studies this year (ocean creatures).

Celebrate America: Learning About the U.S.A. Through Craft Activities

I originally put this on my list when were doing Sonlight Core 3 last year. I thought about not requesting it when it became available, but I figure we can use it for American holiday celebrations this year, and we'll get back to American History next year. I'm always in need of art/hands-on projects.

I haven't received the book yet, but I'll let you know. It has good reviews on Amazon, so we'll see...
