    Oh, yeah, that would make sense! I guess part of the problem is that there arent many actual curriculum, its more like books. which doesnt quite fit. hrmph.

    Yeah, looking at that, I wondered where the line between something that people use as a spine that's basically just a book and a curriculum is... I think The Usborne World History Encyclopedia is on there, for example, but not A Little History of the World, The Story of Mankind, Builders of the Old World or Child's History of the World, all of which people use in the same way. And the Usborne Science Encyclopedia, which we use that way, isn't on there either... And the religions thing is the same sort of thing...

    Maybe I'll do a blog post... 25 books (or 30 books or 50 books or whatever) that homeschoolers use as integral parts of curricula...

    Logic of English is a great new phonics/reading/spelling curriculum that should be added. also, i often cannot see the logos of the featured products - like when I was looking at the language arts section, less than half of the features ones had the logos visible, and no link . . no name at all.

    Thanks for the curriculum suggestion, Cara! I can't figure the issue with not seeing the logos though. Remind me...you are on iPad, right?

    just went back to check. I can see logos for all about spelling and reading, college prep genius, time4learning and time4writing, and spelling city. thats it. the rest are empty and there is nothing to click on. On the multi-subject, I can only see evolution homeschool. fine arts i cant see any. i cant get to the foreign language section - the link takes me to fine arts. Math I can see college prep genius, homeschool programming, and time4learning. geography - none. science - homeschool programming and science powerpoint. History/Social studies the classical historian has a text link, and thats all i can see. electives I an see college prep genius, FE, and homeschool programming.

    i also still have windows XP, if that might be contributing?

    ACCCKKKK! Somehow I've overwritten the foreign language page with the fine arts page. Seeing if I can somehow restore that right now. THANKS for that heads up. The other stuff, I'm going to have to have Michael check into. If you could send me a screenshot of one of the pages you are seeing, that would be awesome. [email protected]
