Yesterday's Classics! TOS Review!

Out of all the reviews I have done this year this one is the first one that is more for me than the kids. Yes they will greatly benefit from it also, but I am the one that is super excited about it. Now that I have piqued your interest I will tell you what I'm talking about. As part of the Homeschool Crew I was given the opportunity to review an Ebook bundle from Yesterday's Classics. Yesterday's Classics is a company that takes books that were formally out of print and reprints them to be used for educational purposes. In the past they have sold these books in print form only, but now you can also get their entire collection as a bundle in either Kindel, or EPUB format. When I found out I had been chosen for this I did not own an e-reader, but my awesome husband went out and bought me a NOOK color. For the NOOK I downloaded the EPUB version. You can also get free E-reader programs for your computer, so you can read these books on your computer or laptop as well. Yesterday's Classic is currently running a special deal for this package $99.95 for the download of all 225 books. Did you catch that; I said 225 books, and these books cover 22 categories such as History, Science, Fables, Nature, Shakespeare, Fairy Tales, Nature, and much more. This special offer makes these e-books come out to be .44 cents each. Each book has been fully re-created from the original classics, and contain all original illustrations. Some have black and white pictures, but others are in color. All of the text is readable, and does not contain strange texts that you sometimes find in free e-book files. Also you can print or put these files onto as many devices as you want. One other exciting thing about this bundle is that many of the titles are used for; Ambelside Online, Heart Of Dakota, Living Books Curriculum, and Tapestry of Grace. I personally went through my new Heart of Dakota catalog and noted that Heart Of Dakota currently uses 16 of the titles included. This bundle would especially appeal to any Charlotte Mason, or Classical home educator. Be sure to head over to the link below and see for yourself what all is included, and if you decide to buy Yesterday's Classics will personally offer you a 100% risk free guarantee! You can also download one of the books in this bundle called The Dutch Twins for free as a sample.

This Yesterday's Classics E-Book bundle was given to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was given.

Huge set of books!
Excellent value!
Great Classics for kids!
Can be used on multiple devices.

Large amount of files to download.
Can take awhile to download, and organize.
