Crafty Book Reading Challenge

Ok, here I am again signing up for another reading challenge.  I just came across this one. I'm currently reading the "Elm Creek Quilts" series, so this one fits.  This is hosted by Anastacia Knits. To sign up, visit this link.  Below are the details copied from Anastacia's blog:

The rules:
* any crafty related fiction book counts, whether it’s quilting, knitting, crocheting, sewing, embroidery, scrapbooking, etc.
* pattern books for the most part, are excluded, with a few exceptions: books by Elizabeth Zimmermann that are very chatty & contain stories, not just patterns, will count IF you read cover to cover. I won’t be policing you, so use your own judgement.
* non fiction craft books, such as “Crochet Saved My Life” are included (haven’t picked up the book yet? Go to and plug in coupon code 76K89G9K for 20% off). Thank you, Kathryn!
* any format is fine: ebook, print book, audio book, reread
* yes, you can also cross over to other challenges, if you like
* reviews are not necessary, but would be very nice for the authors (on your blog, on goodreads or amazon, wherever)
* I’ve started adding a list of crafty books that count for this challenge
If you are a blogger, please write up a blog post talking about the challenge, include the button or header graphic I made above (I’m sorry, I don’t know how to do the fancy code so you can just grab it) and link to this post at so that others can find out about this challenge & join in! When writing up your post, please be sure to tell us how many books you want to try to read!
Non-bloggers, you can join in by commenting on your goals!
I am planning on reading 7 books this year – the only one I know I’ll read for sure is Crochet Saved My Life.
As I said earlier, I am working on reading the "Elm Creek Quilts" books and thinks this is good challenge.  As I began reading the series, I began to wonder what other books are similar to these. I'm now going to find some.
