I might actually crack open those 10 textbooks for my classes and actually, umm read them. I wanted to thank you all for telling me about the sales, I would not have known otherwise, because of you guys my kids will have better lessons than I could have provided on my own. So give yourselves a pat on the back for a job well done!
