Craft Book Club

About the Project
I like listening to audiobooks while working on craft projects; it is the primary way I read books now. One day I was thinking about book reports and those silly book related craft projects we made in school (I ♥ dioramas) and wondered if there were any book clubs where participants made crafts. I was unsuccessful in finding anything like this locally or online and decided to start my own craft book club.

The concept is simple: read the book, make/do something related to the book, and share it. I have selected most of the books and as you can see from the list below, they are primarily young adult or classics. I am always looking for new books to read so please send me book requests or suggestions!

Currently the Craft Book Club's membership is very low and it would be great to have new members! As a member you shouldn't feel obligated to read every book or make something for each book you read, but when you do make something please share it in the comments section of the book's project post or by sending me a note!
