Want to check out new knitting books before buying them? Read bestsellers without plunking down the big bucks?
Do what I do. Reserve them from the library.
The Los Angeles Public Library has a great online system. Whenever I read a great book review, I plug in the title, put a hold on it and then have it sent to my local branch. Easy peasy.
Even if it's a little overdue, it's still the best deal in town.
Right now I am reading "Edith Head's Hollywood". After a recent reviewing of "Rear Window" and a wonderful "Columbo" episode with Anne Baxter, I wanted to know about this amazing designer. In case you don't know who Edith Head is, please read here.
