Carnival of homeschooling - September 13, 2011

Welcome to the September 13, 2011 edition of carnival of homeschooling.

In reading the entries submitted to this Carnival of Homeschooling, I got to thinking about the different ways you can categorize homeschooling.  Then, I got to thinking that it's pretty darn impossible to categorize.  After all, homeschooling isn't a segment of our lives, it IS our lives and to me homeschooling is more like living and breathing and less like a thing we do.

Regardless, I did my best to present this carnival in bite size pieces giving you home stuff, school stuff, somewhere in between stuff, and other valuable stuff.  Enjoy!

As a little bonus, I am including some FREE KINDLE BOOKS you can use in your homeschooliing journey.  You don't need a Kindle to use them.

dixon.marino presents The 20 Oldest Books of All Time posted at Master of Library Science, saying, "If someone were to ask you what the oldest book you could think of was, you most likely wouldn't name one from this list. We often forget just how old literature is. The oldest literature dates back as far as 2600 BC. 

This list of the twenty oldest books of all time offers a look at the thought process of early civilizations and represent the cultural heritage of us all."

Annette presents Higher Education: Economic Boon or Bubble? posted at CreditDonkey.com Tips, saying, "Is college still worth it? Let's take a look at student debt and demographics and the resulting employment and earnings."
