"Firecracker" Finds for July (Including a summer reading program)

I'm back again with some "Firecracker" finds for the month of July. Some of these are good for the whole month, others are current at the time of posting, but prices and/or "Free" status may have changed~ be sure to check the current price.

This month Christian Liberty Press is offering a historical novel (Downloadable e-book)
Lysbeth: A Tale of the Dutch
Teenage and adult readers will be inspired by this historical novel about a Dutch woman who is caught up in the terrors of the Spanish Inquisition during the 1500s. This lively and heart-rending story written by H. Rider Haggard in 1901 continues to remind readers of the value of religious liberty.
Grade: 8th - Adult
Book: 443 pages

Some Nuggets of Gold Kindle Freebies and Deals from Amazon~
(Thank you for shopping through my affiliate links!) 

 Lee Binz's book  College Application Essays: A Primer for Parents (Coffee Break Books) is currently free. This looks like a good read for those who are heading into (Or are already IN) the high school years!

Adventures In Odyssey  Voyage with the Vikings: 1 (AIO Imagination Station Books) is free at the time of posting~ planning to read this one with my newly 6 year old (Downloaded to *his* ipod~ hand-me-down from his big sister, originally mine... at least the kindle app still works on Gen 2! :D).

For the young learner in your home: Trains (Discover Series) My boys would have loved this when they were toddlers, when almost EVERYTHING was "Trains."

Not a "Deal," but related to the train topic~ I have to share one of my favorite train books: Train Song is a lovely, rhythmic read.

OH, and before I forget~ If you haven't joined The Homeschool Buyers Co-Op yet, you might want to consider it. Joining doesn't cost anything, but can save you a bundle AND open up opportunities for purchases that you wouldn't otherwise even think about. I purchased some LEGO Education kits (Simple Machines) through the HSBC years ago, my boys enjoy(ed) learning with familiar, fun materials (with specialty pieces that regular LEGO kits don't offer). Never would have done it without the deal they offered us through the Co-Op. :)

One of my favorite things that they offer is a summer reading program for all school-age kids. Many of the prizes are donated (New and used/good condition books, gift cards, and downloads), with weekly winners, and a grand prize winner at the end of the summer. Check it out!
