Does anyone have the 500 Scrapbooking Sketches e-book? I am trying to catch up on my DD's scrapbook as fast as I can and have decided that the easiest way to do that is to use sketches for as many of the LO's as possible. It is so time consuming to go from site to site to look for sketches and think it would be great to have a whole bunch in one area. I have never downloaded an e-book before so don't know how much memory it would eat up or exactly how an e-book works. Kinda wish they had a paper version of it that I could just order and keep down in my scrapping room so that I wouldn't have to get on the computer to find a sketch. If you have it or know someone that does - how do you (or they) like it??

ETA: website - 500 Scrapbooking Sketches

I kind of have the same thing, but I haven't paid a dime for mine. I go to all the sketch sites (pagemaps, sketchythursdays, splitcoaststampers, apileofscrap, startingnow, 52weeks52sketches and I've also looked at the ones for the scrapbook places on FB) and copy the layouts I see. I then shrink them into a thumbnail and print them on one page. I can get about 20-30 thumbnail layouts on a page and as long as I have the basic idea, I can go from there. I have them all in a 3-ring binder and just look through them when I want to do a layout. It's not organized by number of pictures, but I'm ok with that. I do refer to my Scrapbooks, etc magazine a lot, too and they are indexed by number of photos. I just wouldn't pay for it since there is so much free stuff out there on the Internet. And I'm leary about stuff like that anyway.

I should probably know more about e-books cause we download them all the time, but my husband has a sony e-book reader. I wasn't aware you could use them w/ one (or a kindle).

Well, just decided to put sketches that I find on the internet on a word document and print it out. Will go through lots of paper and ink, but I think it will be worth it.

You can probably also take your disk to somewhere like Staples, OfficeMax or Kinkos. Maybe cheaper and less stress for you, too.

True, never thought about that. Will have to get a disk and take it with me next time I make it to a town with one of those stores (the closest one is 2 hours away). Thanks for the idea!!
