Questions (1)
I am a teacher and would like to purchase the book only of Reading for Literacy 2. I already have purchased the CD separately. Is it possible to purchase the book only and how much would it cost? Regards Carolyn Mason

Hi Carolyn, there are no books currently available to our knowledge, certainly none available through the software publishers of Reading for Literacy. I think an educational bookshop may be your best chance, sorry.
