i've never seen any of these books, but i have a few that i'm interested in.  would i even be able to make anything from them w/out knowing how to read them?...or would it just be eye candy for me?

Yes for the felt mascot books for sure.  I think for the 3-d stuffie books, you should not be totally green about construction of these types of things (like I am)

Japanese crochet charts are easier for me to follow so the 2 crochet books I have are not difficult at all.

 Tongue  A point about Japanese-Chinese and Taiwan books are many of them although in Asian, the diagrams are usually really good.  Even if you can't read the language most people get by with the diagrams, excellent pictures, and basic knowledge in that area of craft.  I would definitely encourage people that order books from YesAsia to write a review if one hasn't been done already.   Huh  Even if a review has been written, there may be more information that can always be of help to US buyers.  Wink

i really want that magic scrubber book also. they look so cute! i tried looking that book up, among others, on the japanese amazon.com and cant seem to come up with any results...what am i doing wrong? entering in the isbn #'s doesnt seem to work either.
theres a number of japanese craft books that i like that i found on ebay but they are expensive.. or are they all $25? i also searched yesasia for these books and cant find them there either   Angry
where to now? Huh

I agree that ebay is expensive.

I did actually find only one of the scrubber books on YesAsia but I didn't order it...yet.  Try putting in only the nimbers, not the letters ISBN when you search.  The other thing is that some of the books on YesAsia don't have any photo, so you really just have to be sure about the ISBN.

Magic Scrubber book 7 at YesAsia:  http://us.yesasia.com/en/PrdDept.aspx/code-j/section-books/pid-1004592192/

I don't know why their search is so goofy.  I put in ISBN numbers for a book they obviously have, but it doesn't come up in the results.
