    February 2010 Newsletter

    By Mark Roth on February 19, 2010 at 11:15 am

    On the 18th I sent out our February 2010 newsletter. You can get it via email from our home page.

    Or you can read it right here. 🙂


    We have cut our targeted shipping time from a maximum of five business days to three. We also reduced some of our rates for Priority Mail service. More details and changes noted here:

    Shipping Policies and Rates

    We have also made some adjustments to our policies governing returns and refunds. I suppose the biggest change is to institute a minimum restocking fee of $4 — again, details here:

    Returns Policy


    I know we have been difficult to get ahold of at times. Well, I’m working to change that. I have set up four new ways to contact us — fax, a special form, voicemail, and (if you are “lucky”) phone. Learn more here:

    Contact Us


    As you might imagine, we sometimes receive brand new books that got damaged in shipping. Several weeks ago we opened a box to find that several copies of “Storytime With the Millers” had their covers scored or creased. You can buy them here:

    Damaged Storytime With the Millers

    I also have a list of special product listings that I expect will change contents over the weeks. Right now I have three books listed there:

    The above are special listings. You can see other damaged books, as well as used and returned ones, here:

    Used (and Other) Books


    Today we got our copy of Rod and Staff’s March 2010 newsletter. Their annual 10% Spring Textbook Discount is under way. Alas, we cannot match that and still make a profit. But in the interest of being open with you, I’m letting you know in case you wish to purchase directly from them instead of from us.

    In their newsletter they also make some textbook projections, among them these:

  • Grade 8 Science (in Editorial)
  • Recordkeeping (available this summer)
  • Algebra (in writing stage)
  • Reading 10 (in planning stage)

    I like life’s highs (even though sometimes I find myself dreading the lows that I know are sure to come).

    “Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here…” (Matthew 17:4).

    Apparently good ole Peter wanted to prolong the experience.

    I would have also, I’m sure.

    But we have to come down.

    Jesus went with them.

    I’m glad He goes with me as well.

    Mountaintop Experiences


    I send this newsletter only to people who WANT it. (If you want to forward it to a friend — well, that’s up to you. It’s certainly fine with me.)

    Thank you for your help and support!
