Look, all of us want books that aren't available on the website. Well, I've got an idea that might help, though its a little involved.


If you, or a friend has a scanner on a home pc, scan your smaller-not the 1000 page ones, but under 300 pages?-craft books, throw the scan on a cd, and post the book here. That way, you get to keep your book and share it too. And the more of us that do that, the more books in circulation on this site that we all want. I'm going to be doing this myself, as soon as my S-I-L gets the additional memory he promised me for Mothers Day this year. Since I have a scanner.


Also, on a related note, if there are other pbs members in your area who are crafters too, get together and buy cheap copies of books from other sites/used bookstores, scan them, make multiple cd's, then post the books here. If you have even a small number of people working together and sharing cost, it would be well worth it and a real savings for everyone.


Well, thats my ideas, hope others like them.


Any crafters-especially jewelry as well as ceramics, or flint knappers, in the Norman OK area?
