Fiber-y books

Books are a "first pass" going through my fiber library - because I can't, alas, keep them all, wonderful as they are.  Unless otherwise noted, they're hardcover.  Prices have been checked on Amazon and they're lower than prices charged there; shipping will need to be added.  They're in good condition, from a non-smoking home. Buy any five and I'll throw in an extra for free to enjoy during the long winter.   There's a time limit because I live in a small house: by the week before Christmas, they're either gone or donated to the local library.  Contact me with what you'd like at threads@empacc.net and I'll get back to you with shipping costs.  Paypal, please.
