Five Blogs Into Books

Five blogs which have been turned into books (or vice versa)

  1. Angry Chicken - Amy Karol's Bend-the-Rules Sewing is a favourite of mine.
  2. Meet Me At Mike's - Pip Lincolne's new book Sew La Tea Do looks like a fun sewing compendium. It's newly released here this month so I haven't seen a copy yet though.
  3. Inside A Black Apple - with The Paper Doll Primer. This one is on my wish list. I love paper dolls, always have, collected them into my teens and beyond. And who could resist a book described as "a fully illustrated wondrous oddity"? With "activities and amusements for the curious paper artist"?
  4. Pure Style - The books came before the blog with this one , but I'm not complaining. More of Jane Cumberbatch's chic-ly simple style can only be a good thing. There is a new cookery book in the works too.
  5. And finally, a reminder of Orangette - the nicest cookery blog I know. And, of course, the blog of the book featured in Pass The Book this month. If you are quick there is still time to enter, but you'll have to be fast because I'm doing the draw Sunday morning..
And now you've got the idea..what about 5 steps to finding the book that's hiding in your blog from Cats Eye Writer. It's certainly something to think about!

Sian, I also adore paper dolls....I had oodles as a child...and spent hours playing with them....just wish I'd kept them. Love the sound of that book...went and looked at it on Amazon as well as the blog.

This certainly seems to be a trend now. I have a crock pot cookbook called "Make It Fast, Cook It Slow", from a lady who used her crock pot every day for a year and blogged about it. Great recipes!

Just a quick look at who's blogged and I've just spent an HOUR reading on those links Siân!

Loved the cookery blog - must see if I can find the slow cooker one as all I have achieved today is preparing tonight's dinner in mine.

Happy Saturday :D

Your blog would make the best kind of book, Sian. I'd buy it! You tell such good stories, I'm sure it would be a popular choice. I will go and look at those links later, when I'm back at my computer!
