Book Fair

I may be falling in love with my postman... just look at what he brought me today! I've been wanting these books for some time now, so I splurged and bought myself a little Mother's Day gift:

In Stitches by Amy Butler

Bend-the-Rules: Sewing by Amy Karol

The Splendid Table's: How to Eat Supper by Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Sally Swift

Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer

I got these for 40% off at Books-A-Million online, and they shipped for free, too. All you have to do is purchase one of those $15 "millionaire's club" cards and you get an extra percentage off eveything you purchase. They even email you coupons for free shipping, coffee, and other discounts useable both online and in-store. I wasn't aware how much more expensive books are in the actual brick-and-mortar stores until I went in last week with my son. I had already priced these online, and I wondered how much they'd cost in the store (I didn't want to wait a week on shipping if I could help it.) Most of these books would have been full price. And because I'm a bargain hunter, I know that these books couldn't be purchase any cheaper on amazon or ebay (*at the time I purchased them.) I'll let you know what I think of these as I finish them. Do you own any of these titles? And if so, what did you think? I just love a good book review.

Nice selection of books. I have the Amy Butler one but have so far never made anything. I'd be interested to know what you think of the one by Amy Karol.
