<p style=”text-align: center;”>Desperate for your thoughts! It’s my first year homeschooling and I’ve loved learning about the Charlotte Mason method! Finding living books has become a kind of hobby for me lately. Here’s the thing…when should I purchase books vs borrow from the library (assuming the library carries the books I’m looking for)? I’ve come upon a number of book sales and am finding amazing living books/classics for bargain prices, but my daughter is only 5! Should I start stock piling books for the future as I find them or only buy books for now/the next two years?</p>sarah2106Participant
For us what I found worked best was to buy books we would use again, such as in history cycle because my younger children would read.
As for stocking up a head of time, I would buy as needed not rush a head. I say that because I purchased quite a few when the kids were young, that while good books, I have now realized we will never get to reading. I have to remind myself quantity does not equal quality. My kids tend to actually reread favorite books, many are SCM books from history or geography or suggested read alouds by SCM. Thankfully everything I purchased was used, so not a big investment, but for me, my time could have often been better used than looking for more great books.Marta CavanahParticipant
Thank you for the advice! It’s nice to hear from folks who have been down this path and can share their journey. I have one child, so it’s good to be reminded that whatever I purchase may be good for only a season.
