Craft Books for Kindle

Kindle Books **NEW**
I will be going on a bit of a holiday to visit friends and family. The decision of what reading material to take with me is always a bit of a challenge as holidays for me are a time to sit, relax and read. A friend of mine was given a Kindle for Christmas. I had thought that this was a bit of an extravagant toy and not something I would want. I have enough laptops, netbooks, Iphones, Ipods. I still like to have lots of books, to read parts of them, put them down, dog ear the pages, pick them up again. And to change technology to yet another gadget, well not for me. My friend convinced me to borrow his Kindle for a few days and give it a try. Rather reluctantly I did, yet thinking no, I'll stick to my paperbacks - having already bought a few to squeeze into my suitcase.
To my surprise, after playing for a bit with adjustments to the font size, number of words per line etc. I was able to tweak this ereader to a format that I felt comfortable with reading. Looking at the stack of paperbacks that are sitting half-read on my shelf at the moment, I thought perhaps there is some use for a bit more electronic technology. I won't stop buying books altogether but maybe this will help with some of my clutter.
After all,
Less Books on shelf = more space for Yarn Stash!
I read several reviews about the Kindle - all were positive: ease of use, size, weight, battery life.
The Kindle comes in 2 versions: Wireless with built-in WIFI, and a slightly pricier model with 3G
Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, Graphite, 6
Kindle 3G Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 6
I decided to go for the 3G model because it includes free worldwide 3G coverage, so I could download books at anytime, anywhere without paying for additional download charges. The Kindle also has an experimental version of a browser, so while traveling I could also browse the internet. Not as efficiently as with my netbook or my Iphone, but without paying for additional roaming charges.
Do you dog ear pages? The Kindle will do this for you. You can read, put it down, and Kindle will remember where you were so you can continue reading. Another clever feature that the Kindle has, is that it can sync with a special Iphone app. So you can read your book on your Kindle, and pick up where you left off, using your Iphone while you are out and don't want to carry your Kindle along, and return home and continue reading on the Kindle.

The new version of Kindle fits up to 3500 books - so what would I buy? I found that there are hundreds of books that can be downloaded for free. Sound better all the time?

Well what about my favourite subjects? I started a search for what types of crafts, weaving, patterns, knitting, crochet, textile books I could find that also come in a Kindle version, and discovered there is an ever-growing selection. Here are some of them. I will continue to update this list as more ebooks become available.
Because Amazon ships orders from different countries, depending on where you live, I am including links for US, Canada, UK where possible.
