Crafty Book Club, Yes, I Couldn’t Resist

Blogged under Good Books by Tammy on Saturday 16 January 2010 at 3:26 pm

Heavy sigh, I received a pamphlets from Crafters Choice in the mail, and yup, I caved…again….! I’ve been a member before, and then quit after awhile, but I just couldn’t resist and rejoined. The deal is pretty typical to most book clubs: 4 books for .99, plus some free gifts, and you pay shipping. You also have to agree to buy one book during the year, which to me is not that big of a deal considering my love of craft books. What is different from the last time I joined is that there are no auto shipments or stupid cards to mail back when you don’t want a book selection.

Granted, I do have a ton of craft books already, but you know what? I really do use them a lot. Even if I’m not making every project in every book, I find them to be a very good reference source, kind of like having my own library. I was tempted to join on-line, but I noticed there was one specific book that I wanted that was not on their site but was in the brochure, A to Z of Crochet edited by Sue Gardner. It supposed to have photos, not just drawings, and it had very good reviews on Amazon. Hopefully, I won’t get a substitute when they do mail these out, but I just got this thing a few days ago.

If you are looking to beef up your craft book library, books clubs can be a good way to go. You just have to have some self-control and not go too crazy once you join.
