Firstly thank you to all who joined over my Giveaway Day hosted by Sew Mama Sew.. It was so much fun wasn't? It was so fun to find new blogs and meeting new followers.. I'll definitely take a visit of my follower's blog if they have..but I have been quite busy lately.. hope I'll be free in a week or two for more updates..
Anyway...I bought a kindle version of Zakka Style. I know it is not new in the market and yes, there is even Zakka sew along a while back, but I have just bought the book.. (how late am I?? LOL..) I just have to give it a little review anyway..
The book is filled with crafty handmade tutorials and are great for making quick gifts. It is a fun book with great crafty contributors. So it is worth a buy. Worth visiting some of the contributor's blog too. And it is so much fun using linen!
I have never bought any craft kindle book or e-book so I thought I'd give it a try.. But I must say, I am pretty much not liking the electronic version. I miss flipping the pages, I miss the shiny paper. And its hard reading instruction while sewing. Unless of course you print it out. which is not as nice as the real book too.
The only good thing is that it arrives quickly to have a read at it. Other than that, I very much prefer the real printed book, no matter how long it takes to arrive here in Australia, no matter how much it cost more to post as well.. So I guess this would probably be the last crafty e-book I'll buy. How about you? do you prefer E-book or the real book? I made an oven mitt from this book as a gift to my friend. It turns out quite pretty. I should make one or two for myself.. my oven mitt definitely need replacement.
I am joining the bloghop party on the 9th hosted by Quilting Gallery. Do drop by and join in..
