Book Sale, Freebies and a very special GIVEAWAY!

I'm joining in Jessica's curriculum blog hop.
Most of these are books we no longer use or are duplicate copies we were given.  I've tried to group them together by category. I've priced these at what I hope is a fair price on the low side. I will charge a flat rate media mail shipping fee of $3 for an envelope (just one or two small books) and $5 for a box no matter the size. If you see me locally and we can arrange a hand off, no shipping fee applied. I can prefer Paypal but will take a check. Please leave a comment and send me an email so we can work out payment and shipping. Thanks!

~A Special Gift~

As you can tell, we have a collection of old Catholic books. When I started clearing off the bookshelves, I challenged myself to get rid of a few of these beautiful old books that were just sitting there collecting dust and give them away to someone who might read and enjoy them now. How this one ended up in our collection, I don't know. The binding is not in the best shape, as you can see, but it's a beautiful tiny little thing. If you would like a chance at winning this pretty little treasure, just leave a comment on this post with the words "Enter Me". Any comments that don't include "Enter Me" won't be entered.
