To All My Knitting Friends: I must share my secret. I re-joined the Mystery Guild and received all of these hardcover books for free (but paid $14.96 in shipping costs). What a deal and great way to get caught up on knitting mysteries and novels. The only obligation is to purchase 3 more books. I feel so clever since I discovered I can read while putting in time daily on the Eliptical cardio trainer at the Y. Talk about multi-tasking!
