    Open Library lends books electronically; it has a vast catalog
  • History and science help
    The Story of the World is mostly secular. It does have some bible stuff in it, but they are stand alone chapters and presented as stories. There are other religions presented in the books as well, but it isn't indoctrination, you can present it like "This is what some ancient people believed" or you can just skip it like we do. I like Story of the World. I got my copy along with the activity book at Thriftbooks.com for less that 20 bucks for the pair. In the activity book there is recommended extra reading for each chapter and I've found that I can mostly find these extra books at openlibrary.org. So for me, a homeschooler on a budget, I got a great curriculum for less than 20 dollars.

    Donations are fantastic but if you have engineering (or project management, design, etc) skills spending just 1 hour a week contributing to their open source goes a very long way!

    Open Library in particular has a very active repo with lots of volunteers, a weekly community call, and a rather accessible codebase. https://github.com/internetarchive/openlibrary

    If anyone knows webpack well would LOVE to have this dev-facing issue resolve to auto reload CSS https://github.com/internetarchive/openlibrary/issues/4955

  • The price of Linux+ training materials?
    reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-07-20
    Reminds me of the ridiculously priced textbooks in college that were poorly written. Try your local library or one of the online free libraries like https://openlibrary.org/. Bigger city libraries often offer access to people out of town too.

    archive.org and openlibrary.org - organization based in California. A full online archive of the Internet year by year going back to 1996, a library with millions of books and audio recordings, a software and video game repository, and a video vault. It is free to check out online and read. For your age the young adult book classifications may work. Recommendations are gamebooks like Lone Wolf by Joe Dever (https://www.projectaon.org/en/Main/Books or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.GDVGames.LoneWolfBiblio&hl), the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure series by R.A. Montgomery, and the Eyewitness series by DK Publishing that have large photo format books that cover physical sciences in reading forms that are both mature and easy to understand (Example is Eyewitness Invention: https://openlibrary.org/works/OL2620807W/Eyewitness?edition=eyewitness00lion). The account registration process only needs an email address. No personal information is required. Console games that work inside your web browser are found at https://archive.org/details/consolelivingroom. Many popular titles available to play. For playable in-browser online games most use the left Control, left Alt, and left Shift button, and numbers 1 and 2 to correspond to controller buttons A, B, C, Start, and Select. Arrow buttons on a keyboard are for moving characters across a screen.

  • Can we raise $50 to get these rare books digitized?
    In case you didn't know, the Internet Archive runs a digital library (aka OpenLibrary) that lets people borrow ebooks ⁠— legally and for free. I've acquired duplicate copies of five rare Stine books (Invasion of the Body Squeezers: Part 2, Into the Jaws of Doom, Trapped in the Circus of Fear, One Night in Payne House, and Camp Out) that I'd like to donate to them... But the process would cost some money.
  • Any non-secular curriculums I should be aware of?
    We used BookShark last year (need something more independent this year due to jobs) and got most of our books used online, one or two from the library, a number from a massive local book store, and a couple we read online through openlibrary.org. We purchased two of our three instructor's guides used through the BookShark BST group on FB. It saved us hundreds of dollars.
