B&N Booklist Sale

Barnes and Noble had a really nice sale. Books 50% off for non-members and 60% off for members. I bought the four books on my wishlist and several more. I looked at all of these books in the store. I did not feel the amount of content that interested me was worth the price. For instance there were just one or two patterns I would knit or crochet. Or the information repeated another source I already had, adding just a few new techniques. But at 60% off they all became a good value. If any of them turn out to be something I will never read or use I will sell them on Half.com. Without further ado ~ my latest library additions:

Socks Two on the go!
Crocheted Shawls on the go!
