kittycatalina @ 09:26 pm: Welcome to the Crafty Library!
Wow, such a great turnout for just a few hours up and running!
I'm going to get through listing the rest of my Japanese books, and then crack open the Vintage Vault. If anyone has any books, etc. to share, please do so!
In the interest of keeping things neat and orderly like a good librarian, let's set a few ground rules. Nothing too scary.
-If possible, please list the name and/or author of the book/article.
-IBSN numbers are great, especially for those trying to track down books in another language, an older book, or from Interlibrary Loan.
-If it's a harder to find book, a note on where you found it would be handy, especially if it's online.
-A picture is worth a thousand words, so if you have one of the cover, great. Especially on these Japanese books!
Anything else you'd like to see?
