New Books!!!

My new books I ordered from Amazon came today..all except for one which is being shipped separately. Of course I started a new book last night so will have to wait to get started on these ones!
A Fine Fleece by Lisa Lloyd is knitting with handspun yarns and has 26 patterns in it. Just a beautiful book too, the photography in it is phenomenal!
The Intentional Spinner by Judith MacKenzie McCuin. It has technical knowledge, history, practical information, step by step instructions and four projects showing the fiber to finishing.
Summer on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. She is one of my favorite authors and love her series on a fictional knitting store and its patrons. This is the fourth in the series.
From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris. This is the eighth book in her Sookie Stackhouse series. There is also a series on HBO called True Blood based on these books. They'll soon be coming out on Netflix so I can watch them! I waited for this to come out in paperback so it'd match my other ones...having to wait on the ninth for the same reason.
Summer of Fire by Linda Jacobs. The scene of this book is based in the Yellowstone National Park and its on fire....the main character is a fire fighter that just witnessed her best friend die in a fire..the other is a Vietnam vet looking for a good time...Ranger Steve is scarred by the loss of his wife and baby in a plane crash...
Rain of Fire by Linda Jacobs. This is also based in Yellowstone National Park. It's about the largest volcano and geologist Kyle Stone is monitoring it as well as a Ranger and a volcanologist whom is her former love. More than the volcano is heating up in this novel!
Can't wait to get started on them!:)

Cool book haul! I'd like to take a peek at that first book you listed, it sounds really great (like I NEED more knit/spin books!) And, we are taking our vacation in about 30 days to Yellowstone, so now I want to get some of those Linda Jacobs books and read 'em on the plane!!! Thanks for the great list o' books :)

Funny, in the middle of my doctors visits and prescription filling I went to the library and got a big haul of books too. Warning, the showtime series is really really graphic with Jason..... like nearly X rated sometimes.... but good. You'll love what they did with Lafayette!

I don't have Intentional Spinner in my library... Hmmm...

I also haven't gotten into the Blossom Street series. I believe I have the first three books, so maybe I should give it another go?

I just ordered the Fine Fleece book from the library for a pattern! Same wave length again! :)

I love getting new books! It's almost as much fun as getting new yarn... sometimes even better. I always order a stack like you did, but rarely read them all before I order more. I have a shelf full of those extra books that never got read.
