i usually have a large stack of books hanging around. eventually i get to looking through them, usually with a cup of tea in hand. this is my latest stack:

  • they are all really great books.
  • i love cookbooks with pictures and the only downside is the Make the Bread, Buy the Butter doesn't include pictures, however, it does have lovely personal stories within the pages of yummy recipes. 
  • i also love "previewing" books first from the library. it allows me to check out the book and see if it's worth buying. and really, i usually don't buy it but i'll put it on my birthday or christmas wishlists.
  • i love having lots of sewing and quilting books at my disposal. sometimes just skimming through the pages can boost my motivation to get off my butt and get sewing.
  • i love bullet lists.
