Bead Book on Sale: Bead Directory: The Complete Guide to Choosing And Using More Than 600 Beautiful Beads

Why do they have to tempt me with more books?!

 
 I can't help myself.  I have to investigate a bead or jewelry making book that I've never heard of before.

Today, I see that the The Bead Directory Book is On Sale at Interweave for only $7.48.  Sounds like a good price, but the last time I bought books at Interweave, I think the shipping added about $5-$6.  Not a   huge amount, but it does add up (that was for two books).

I always research at Amazon before I buy


So, before I ever hit buy, I swing by my buddies at Amazon.com to see what they have to say about The Bead Directory: The Complete Guide to Choosing And Using More Than 600 Beautiful Beads.  For one thing, they give you the option to view inside the book - not sure why interweave doesn't do this.

One thing I can tell you - the price at Interweave is certainly much better than Amazon's today.  And although I'm tempted, it just sounds like I know most of the information in this book already.

However, if you're fairly new to beading - it may save you time and money to get this book as a reference.  I think I've already collected most shapes, styles, sizes and figured out what wire or string or thread to use.

I always read the amazon reviews to get an idea if I can use this or not.
