I'm just curious as to how many of you out there would buy a book that would help you with ideas for the holidays and special occasions?

For example, Halloween. How to make a really cool, fun Halloween party - from decorations to treats and drinks, invitations ... ideas on different kinds of parties (from young child to adult) .... Stuff like that. If you don't understand what I am talking about, just ask and I'll give a better example.

TIA!

I would definitely take a book like that out of the library, but I'm not sure I would spend money on one ... you can always find TONS of info online as well.

I'm a cheapskate, though!

I would and I have. I like to have books with ideas for partys and holidays. I'd rather have a book to thumb through then to search the internet, but that's just me.

Oh I'd probably not buy the book. Not unless it was from the dollar store for a buck. I can find info online for practically nothing.

I would and have. I get a lot of info on the net too, but sometimes the books have really unique ideas that I haven't found on the net. I am into it sometimes, but more often than not, it is because our families want to come to our house for every holiday and occasion, and I just run out of ideas.
