Okay, I'm not a crafter, but I always seem to find books on knitting, quilting, etc. When I post them, they always go to some wishlister. Oh, I'm not complaining at all. I really do love to get people books that they really want.

Next week, is our FOL biannual book sale. It is a 'huge' one! What I would like to do is find books for your genre. What I need to know are what are the top '10' most wished books in this genre. Please give me ideas on what to look for and I will certainly do that. Actually it turns out to be fun looking for books for others to enjoy.

I am always looking for quilt books.  I always have 200 books on my wish list and the majority of them are quilt related.  My new addiction is embroidery and pincushions and cannot find much on those either, they are always wishlisted.  I would love to find the Complete Guide to Embroidery by Reader's Digest.  I don't know what others are looking for, but I know knitting books are usually real popular.

Thanks Doree, I will keep an eye out for those books. I'll bring your wishlist along with me. You gave me great tips.

Keep sending me ideas!

I too am looking for quilt books, and in particular, books by Eleanor Burns, Lynette Jensen (Thimbleberries) or Debbie Mumm.   As popular as these ladies are, I doubt anyone has any of these lying around, but it does not hurt to ask!

I listed 18 scrapbooking books about 6 months ago and they all went quickly.  So scrapbooking books do well!
