Title: Book section
Post by: Trudi on October 07, 2008, 06:13:16 AM
Hi
I know we have a library loans section – but is it possible to have a section for book reviews (Or can we add this into a current section somewhere). I wanted to post this but wasn’t sure where to post it!

Cheers

Trudi


Book Review – lampworking
Just had an email from Amazon with book recommendations – on there was a new book:

Glass Beads: The Complete Guide to Making Handmade Lampwork Beads and Glass Jewelry: The Complete Guide to Making Handmade Lampwork Beads and Glass Jewellery (Paperback)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1589233913/ref=pe_5301_13000841_pe_ar_t4

It’s not expensive, so I wouldn’t be expecting too much from it, but I just wondered if anyone had come across it and what they thought of it?

I bought the first one and didn't liked it at all.
The other one I loved, the one from Jerri Warhaftig.

I got it today.  It looks good but might be a bit simple for all you experts out there!

I've got a bit of an amazon book habit (which I must get under control!), and have quite a few of these books.  I've got the other book listed too.

If anyone wants to borrow them.....

Well, if anyone wants to visit Carlisle, we have just opened our 'library'  These are my personal books by the way, I am not sure if I should be ashamed to admit I am such a bookworm !!

Due to copyright laws we cannot lend them out, but you can come and have a brew and flick through them .
