Just curious as to the reasoning why this book was moved. Was it moved to a different year or just taken off?
Seems like a wonderful book to come off the list.

Hgray, did you see all of this? I thought I'd bump it back up again. I'll try to send you an email, too, with my special admin privileges. :)

The Problem of Pain was always a back-up book, one to use if the main book had already been read. I wasn't part of the discussions about which books to keep, but I can speculate. :-) This is an excellent book, but it's not one that should displace any of the books that are currently on the schedule. Also, I think most students would appreciate this book more at an older age, in my opinion.

I am really looking forward to using the new schedule. I was already paring down the old one. The addition of the biographies was something I hadn't expected but am excited about. Missionary biographies helped me so much as a young person, and I see that they could be important for my kids as well.

Confirming what Kathy said. It's okay to have some C.S. Lewis left to discover after high school. I am only now starting to understand Till We Have Faces, in my fifties.

Can we please, oh please, please, please make web pages stay of the older versions? Like …maybe go through delete every current/updates recommendations and just leave ONLY to older recommendations right where they are under their assigned subjects the pages could be labeled as “possible substitutes from previous recommendations” pages.

Those older version recommendations are so, so vital as possible choices, if one book or another on the current recommendation doesn’t work for a particular family’s situation, or have already been read another time, it would be extremely helpful to be able to click a link to check the older recommendations for already possible substitution. It seems like it wouldn’t be to terribly difficult since there is already changes on “old recommendations” pages to just go through and delete anything still current and leave the rest.

My heart is greatly sadden that this information will only be available through the end of 2023 school year. I do plan on going through and cutting and pasting information to a word documents to save for all 12 years, as I still have several going through, but I’m almost certain I am not the only one that feels a great loss at such a value resource of books, for veteran AO users just going away.

Thank you so much for all your hard work. My family and I have benefited so greatly from this curriculum and all your sacrifices and efforts. You all have truly changed our lives.

Also, archive.org's Wayback Machine has been archiving copies of all of our pages, so you should be able to find every iteration of AO since 2003 there. Just type the webpage url into the box and it will show "page captures" from every few months since they started saving copies of our page.

Thanks for the reminder. That'll be fun to scroll through. Now if I could only find the April Fool's pages that Admin put up with the Music selections (Guns n Roses, et al.) not too long ago. That was a highlight of our homeschool journey, ha ha! So funny.

God bless. Love you all. Thanks for your rewarding work - it has helped turn some of my roughest teens into intelligent, thinking adults.
