~$100 Shopping Spree: Amazon~

If someone gave me a $100 giftcard to Amazon, I would most likely purchase:

Because I am #38 on first hold returned at my library:

The Forbidden, by Beverly Lewis. $11.19

I have read Jane's blog Yarnstorm for over two years, and was delighted she was writing a book. I do like the UK cover better than this one, though this cover is pretty too. :-)

The Gentle Art of Domesticity, by Jane Brocket (title to be released in September, 2008). $23.10

I wish my library would get this book:

Pretty Little Pincushions, by Lara Books. $12.21

I keep checking this book out of the library and then not doing anything with it. It has a ton of recipes in it for household cleaners.

Clean House, Clean Planet, by Karen Logan. $10.17

This just looks like so much fun:

Gingham Aprons of the '40s & '50s: A Checkered Past, by Judy Florence. $26.96

Knitted Lace:

Knitted Lace of Estonia: Techniques, Patterns, and Traditions, by Nancy Bush. $16.47

I only went $.10 over. Pretty good, hmmm? LOL

Tammy ~ I checked The Forbidden out of our library and didn't get to read it before it was due. I now have it on hold again. Did you know that there's #3 due out this summer? It's The Longing; I saw it in the newest CBD catalog. I like your Amazon list!
