Book index

Since I am starting to have a lot of book entries, I thought I'd create a master list of all the books to make them easier to find. This will be work in progress. If you spot any mistake or typo, please let me know. Grazie!

Francesca, what an EXCELLENT collection of books you have! Some of those are among my very favorites and some of them I am now lusting after. Books are truly the thing I like to collect most in the crafts. Even when I can't or shouldn't afford a new spindle or fleece or whatever, I will allow myself to buy a book.

-- Janel

You have the MOST beautiful books.

Wow! Thanks for doing a book list, it's sure helpful for me. I have a local Kinokinuya (in SF) and it's wonderful to browse in. They've been good to me too, ordering a few books, etc. Your list is really helpful for me too, (ha-ha, it's also known as enabling!)
