Our 2012 Used Book Sale

It's time for another Online Curriculum Sale Blog Hop!   You can find all the details, browse books for sale on other blogs, or add a link to your own post here.

I wasn't sure that I would have much to sell this year, but sure enough, once I finally got started decluttering my book shelves, I ended up with quite a pile! If you are interested in purchasing any of the books listed, please leave a comment listing the books you would like, along with your email address, and I will send you your total, with shipping, along with my PayPal info. (If you'd rather not leave your email address, you can email me directly at jessica(dot)showerofroses(at)gmail(dot)com.)

I will be out of the house each afternoon this week, at swimming lessons, but will respond to requests in the order that they are received.  Shipping will be $3.50 for 1-2 items and $5.00 for 3 or more, to cover the cost of packaging and media rate in the continental U.S. If you end up ordering a lot of books, or you would like the books mailed elsewhere, I will get back to you with the actual shipping costs.

    12. Hi Jessica, I would like the Pampered Chef recipe binder if it is still available. My email is jayandjay22 at hotmail dot com.

      Thanks! PS Did you watch the Olympics last night? I remember you said you were doing an Olympic study. Anyway, the mom of Jordyn Wieber (US Women's gymnastics) held her rosary beads the entire time of the competition while she was in the stands!


      1. It's yours! I'll email you my paypal info.

        And how awesome about the Olympics! We have been doing a Unit Study, but have been very frustrated with how little we have been able to watch online. We don't have cable, or even any local channels, so rely on the internet completely for the Olympics. NBC has made it incredibly hard for people like us. :) I'll have to see if I can find a clip to show the kids.

    13. Thank you everyone!! I woke up to quite a few comments and emails this morning, and have been BUSY trying to get back to you all! :) I should have everything updated with the correct "Sale Pendings" and emailed totals to you all. Let me know if you haven't heard from me yet.

    14. We don't have cable either which we are happy to say:) Where have you been able to watch clips? I have not found any yet:(

      1. Here's the link to the Official Olympic Channel on Youtube:

    15. Hi Jessica,

      If Simply Grammar: An Illustrated Primer by Karen Andreola, is still available I'd like to purchase it. Let me know when you can... no hurry.

      God bless,

      1. Thank you, Elizabeth! I pulled it aside for you and just sent you an email. God bless!

    16. Jessica, do you want me to send a check so you don't loose $3.00 to payapl?

      I rather your family have it, paypal supports planned parenthood so I try not to deal with them to much.

      Just let me know either way is fine:)


      1. If you have money in your Paypal account, and don't pay with a credit card, you can actually transfer money without part of it being taken to pay for the fees!

        To do so you just select the Transfer tab and select the appropriate option. By default, the ‘Buy’ tab is active. You need to change that to avoid PayPal fees. Doing this ensures that neither you nor the person for whom the payment is intended is charged any fees.

        However, if it is easier for you, a check is perfectly fine too. Just let me know which you'd like to do. I have your books all boxed up for you! :)

    17. Hi, Jessica! I'm interested in the following:
      -Fr. Lovasik: My First Catechism, The Gifts of the Holy Spirit, The Sacramentals of the Church, The Apostles of Jesus
      -One each of the coloring books - Rosary and Stations of the Cross

      Let me know a total and remind me of your paypal address and I'll get it sent to you - thanks!

      1. I just pulled them aside for you, and will send you an email in just a minute. Thanks!

    18. I'd like the Writing with Ease level 1,2 and 4 workbooks. and the "instruction" books that comes with the workbooks. Let me know =)

      1. Great! I think I pulled aside the correct books for you (it was the used Level 1 that you wanted and not the new copy, right?) but I just sent you an email to make sure. Thanks!

      2. I didn't get the eamil =( but I'll take the new one please, if still available =)

      3. Okay, I pulled the new one aside for you instead! :) I'm not sure why the email didn't go through... After I make/serve dinner I will try and re-send it again. Thank you!!!
