ANY READERS OUT THERE?
Have any of you read the trilogy by Debbie Macomber? They are all novels about a woman that owns a LYS. The titles are "Blossom Street", "A Good Yarn" and finally "Back on Blossom Street" which I just started. The patterns the characters work on are in the books and Leisure Arts have joined with the author and printed them separatly to buy.

audio tape
I've just begun listening to the audio tape of the Shop on Blossom Street.
I like to listen to books on tape while I'm knitting.
Will let you know later how it goes.

I think I've read 2 of the books. Got them from local library. Just found out that my library also has audio books that can be downloaded from their web site so I am currently listening to the Yarn Harlot's book At Knits End and thoroughly enjoying it. I'm going to have to go back and look to see what else I can download.

I haven't heard of those. I love to read (always too tired to do it though). I'll have to check them out.

I read them all and enjoyed them a lot. There are other knitty books, too.

Here's the authors with a link to Amazon. There are others, but these have multiple books.

I've only read "A Good Yarn", it's actually what got me interested in knitting. I got it from someone as a gift (cuz I LOVE to read) and throughout the book I thought that they made knitting sound so fun and interesting, so the next time I went to the store I picked up some yarn and the 'I Taught Myself Knitting' set from Boye and been knitting since.

I've read all three of them and enjoyed them very much. I have to say, Debbie Macomber is one of the reasons I'm knitting today. It was reading "Shop on Blossom Street" that inspired me, after my daugher took up knitting.
