Get a Hobby!: 101 All-Consuming Diversions for Any Lifestyle by Tina Barseghian is a great book for when you want to try out a new craft but have no clue about it. So it helps start you off. What's cool is that you take a quiz and that will help determine what type of crafts you are more likely to do. Also, it points out how crafting is good for relieving stress (which is a bonus lol). I definitely recommend it as I'm always ready to try out something new.
