I have been covetting a book called "creating Life-like figures in polymer clay" by Katherine Dewey. She has 2 books under similar titles. The one book runs just below $20 and the other book runs at least $99 on half.com or whenever I see them on ebay. So, I've been watching them for about 6 months and bid on them, but never high because I just can't rationalize spending too much on a book. I saw the second book on ebay last week and put a bid on it - I figured I wouldn't win because there was still 4 days to go on bidding, but I went for it anyway. So, this book, plus a couple of other things with it (ball tool, clay and a model of how to do an ear) sat on ebay with no other bids for 4 days. I couldn't believe it, but I won this book that is at least $100 any other time I've seen it, for $19. How cool is that? So, my moral of my post - have patience and you, too, may get your covetted book! icon_smile.gif

You know I saw that same book on Amazon -- I couldn't find it at the library though -- I like to see books before I buy them if at all possible. Can you tell us anything about it?
