Am I the only one? I find a book sale and I must ..have..this book! Perhaps this new book will be the key to making my days smooth and easy. Of course, I know logically this is a fallacy. I know the book or curriculum is only good when wielded in the hand of an effective teacher or faithful parent. But...I cannot resist. I must say, I do (eventually) come to use the book, but it may not be when or how I first pictured it. My bookshelves are bursting with to-be knowledge.
Am I the only one? How do you break a book habit? Or should you? What is your weakness? (For example, in the last eight years of homeschooling we have tried, umm, six math curriculums! I have always felt ill-prepared to teach math, and have found all of my children required a conceptual math program in the end. Yes, please don't judge my weaknesses! )
