I have a rather good, almost local used bookstore. It's about a 40 minute drive away, so I save up a stack of books before I head out. Today, it was rainy and chilly. A perfect day to hang out in the house with a book. I found for the nominal sum of $10, Renee Pearson's first book on digital scrapbooking, complete with the CD. Go me! On Amazon, the book is only available used at prices ranging from $39.69 all the way up to $186.22. Her first book is not to be confused with the book with the number 1 in the title. That book isn't released yet, and according to Renee, it won't be released.
While I have a few issues with Renee's books, I'm reading through them to see what I can glean. No knowledge is wasted.
