I especially love the ones from the supermarket checkouts, but am also on the hunt for baking cookbooks, and books that features "gifts in a jar" and that sort of thing. (Hurricane Ike took it's toll, so we're trying to be super-thrifty and still give a nice Christmas to our extended family by baking & making). We also enjoy crafty books (making jewelry, scrapbooking, knit/crochet, sewing....). Would love bundles.... and need them to be from a non-smoking atmosphere :-(  we're sensitive....

On my shelf is Better Homes and Gardens Embroidery.  Of the 42 projects, some are complex, but there are also directions for patchwork placemats, cross-stitch pillowcases, crewel picture frame, Christmas stocking and tea cozy,  embroidered pillowcases, cross-stitch tree ornaments, to name a few.  

If you are interested you can take another book as well for a total of 1 credit.

I have about 35 craft and cookbooks on my shelf and am currently running a 2 for 1 on entire bookshelf including hardbacks, and a 3 for 1 on Harlequin and Harlequin-type books. Take a look and if you find anything you like send me a PM.
