Over the Counter #182

What book caught my eye this week as it passed over the library counter and under my scanner? Well, this week it was The Star Trek Craft Book - Make it So by Angie Pedersen

It caught my eye as this Saturday, Oct 5th is Star Wars Reads Day to promote literacy. A Bookworm's World will be having a special  guest blogger that day to help celebrate - make sure you stop in!

From the publisher, Simon and Schuster:

"Create 25 unique Star Trek–inspired crafts with The Star Trek Craft Book! Whether you’re a “Trekker in Training” or a seasoned craft whiz, you’ll find a project in these pages to pique your interest.These fun, quirky, and even practical crafts range from accessories to d├ęcor to toys. Boldly experiment with a variety of crafting projects, including crochet, sewing, embroidery, felting, and much more. Each project is ranked according to complexity and skill level—from Ensign to Admiral—and accompanied by easy to follow instructions and photos. Full of Star Trek facts and imagery, crafty tips, and fun, The Star Trek Craft Book is perfect for Star Trek fans and enterprising crafters alike."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come to the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But...I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
