If you got the 4th ed. of TWTM, did you toss your older editions?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm doing a massive house clean-out and I would love to clear some space on my (eternally overstuffed) bookshelves. I bought the 4th edition of TWTM this past fall. Is there a compelling reason for me to hang on to my 3rd edition copy? (It's a big book, so letting go of it would clear off a nice space, but I don't want to regret getting rid of it if there's something in there--that I'm not remembering right now--that I might need later.) The 4th edition is all I need to keep, right? Can you think of any reason I shouldn't let the 3rd edition go? Thanks!

What is this sacrilege of which you speak???

 

 

 

:lol:

 

 

 

I'm sorry, I'm no help. I still have the 3rd edition. If I hadn't let someone borrow the 1st edition that was never returned long ago, I'd still have that too. I do miss the 1st edition. [insert nostalgic sigh]

I have all four editions.  I bought the 2nd and 4th because the 1st and 3rd looked lonely.

You probably don't want my opinion.

We're finishing up homeschooling this year, so I didn't buy the 4th edition. I'll probably get it from a local library though at some point just to scan it.

 

I always sold or gave away my previous editions once I felt like I had gotten the benefit from them and if the local library had them. I bought the first edition when my oldest was a toddler, and he's now a sophomore in college!

I'm keeping my 1st edition. The library has the third, so I can just check it out from there. I wouldn't toss the first, but I might consider passing along the third . . . Or, not. :) No help here!

I gave my 3rd away once I'd read & sticky-noted the 4th. My ed theory shelf is full. But I'd really like to read the 1st sometime! :biggrinjester:

I only have the 2nd and 3rd editions. I wouldn't get rid of either. I use the 3rd for most things, but I preferred the step by step exact instructions for logic stage history in the 2nd edition. So I keep both around. I can compare things to get a bigger picture or other ideas. I am sure I will keep them both when I buy the 4th. (why do I need the 4th? when I have made do with these all of this time? Because I do! )

I have all 4. I don't even really follow WTM at this point, but oh my goodness, I didn't even consider getting rid of any of them when I recently did my major book cull!!!!

I have 2, 3 and 4.

 

they would be the last books I would get rid of. Especially as I am starting over with homeschooling form the beginning with the  twins.

 

 

 

I do the science recommendations in 2 - because I have the whole set of books ( meaning I have form year 1 to year 12)

I'll always keep the first edition, because it was written when there were almost no homeschool curricula available, which is comparable to the situation now in the Netherlands. I sold the second edition recently and would have sold the third edition, except I highlighted all through it. I'm definitely going to keep the fourth edition, love the way it is organized and updated! :wub:

I have the 3rd and 4th editions... I will keep them both forever but, if I had to choose, I would keep the 3rd, as that is the one I read first and marked up.

Those are reasons why I keep the 2nd too. It is the first I bought, so I bought a lot of those resources. So when my next one comes up through school, I can use what I have and am familiar with. But the new ones are nice for my high schooler when I am buying new stuff or looking at Latin or something now that has so much more available than it did back then. I can't wait to read the fourth to see how it is differently organized.

I did.  We were trying to sell our house, so I needed to majorly declutter.  I have TWTM 4 and love it, and wasn't particularly attached to TWTM 3, so I donated it to our HSing charter.
