When I have free time and I'm not crafting, you can most likely find me with a book in my hand. Early last year I started a book blog, Ali's Book Nook, where I share reviews and weekly new book lists for all ages - both fiction and nonfiction. The past few weeks I found more creative books for my nonfiction book section than I had room to include. I decided that I would share those here so the people that come to visit for home decor projects, sewing tutorials, and delicious recipes will have a list of new books that fit perfectly with their interests.

When looking through the books, I think I'm most interested in checking out Oprah's new cookbook. Recently I was advised to change my diet and I've had a hard time finding healthy recipes that taste good.
It would be fun to take a look at the quilting ideas in Just Charm Quilts. I've seen some super cute charm packs at a local quilting store that would be perfect for these projects.
