Today's Free Fridays book selection is The Knitter's Life List by Gwen W. Steege - a rich and comprehensive collection of must-have experiences and knowledge for knitters, from the expert purler to the true beginner.

 

Ever wanted to try a unique variety of fiber, a classic sweater design, or find the yarn-friendliest city in America? This book contains seemingly infinite advice, garnered from interviews with top knitters from all over the country, on unique patterns, ground-breaking designers in the field, and even suggestions of knitting-related movies and museums - basically, everything you've ever wanted to know about this beloved textile tradition.

 

Friendly to all levels of knitting, The Knitter's Life List is a joyous exploration of a craft that'll enrich your winter days and nights - plus, 'tis the season for mittens, hats, and cozy woolen socks!


Today’s Free Fridays App selection is Math Bugaboo – a fun and engaging educational app that introduces children to the wonders of math!

 

If your child isn’t so crazy about learning arithmetic, Math Bugaboo offers exciting games that teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with ease and simplicity. Just watch the bugs as they carry numbers across your NOOK screen, and pair up the right critters to get the correct answer to the equation – but be sure to watch out for some angry bees! Each level increases in difficulty, and covers math tables from numbers 1 through 12, so your child will learn math essentials in a comprehensive, enjoyable manner.

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Gwen recommends:

 

The Spinner's Book of Yarn Designs by Sarah Anderson: My goal is to spin my way through the dozens of yarn designs in Sarah’s book, hoping to become a better spinner as I do. Sarah, with her spot-on descriptions of how to create each yarn, from the simplest and most basic, to the craziest and most glamorous, is the perfect guide. Plus, the yarns are all tantalizingly beautiful – truly a library full of inspiration.

My 9 year old son hates doing math facts for school, so I was happy to find this app today.  Thanks!

Woohoo!  B&N's really been pushing the religious fiction in its daily deals and free Fridays lately, it's great to find something I'll actually read!

Free Fridays are great!  I appreciate the surprise each week--usually the topic is something that I like, sometimes maybe not, but the wonderful thing is that readers are getting to experience such a wide variety of free ebooks.  Thanks B&N!

Yay!  I'm a knitter, so I'm really liking this week's selection.  Of course, it's a rare Free Friday that doesn't have me downloading something.  :smileyhappy:
