Ooooooooh my Gosh, Anne!!!!!  I love the Stained Glass ones, so beautiful!  This is why I love sewing....I can make any pattern or design I want and end up with a colorful quilt or scarf, or whatever.    Oh good grief, look what you have done!  Now I want Stained Glass Dover coloring books!  hehehe

Hey Paula and Dawn,  I'm thinking that they're not what your thinking!  (naughty girls)  But coloring books for adults to color in.  As opposed to Mickey Mouse, Dora the Explorer, etc.  Like butterflies and pretty buildings...that kind of thing.

I requested and received a book that turned out to be a Dover Coloring book. It is an educational tool, and the pages I need will be photocopied before I use them.

Someone mentioned that "workbooks can't be reposted" but they can! As long as the workbook isn't written in, it can be used any number of times. When I was homeschooling I had my son number his paper and do the problems or write the answers on the sheet of paper, because I knew I would be reselling them when we were finished with them. Turns out I found out about this club and posted them here instead of selling them, but the end result is the same.  Coloring books can be done the same way. Just photocopy the page you want to color. That way if you have several children who want to color the same page everyone can!
