Crochet Books in Fully Booked (Bonifacio High Street)

I love the Crafts Section of Fully Booked in High Street. They have the biggest selection of craft books I have seen so far anywhere in Manila. They probably have the most crochet books in their display compared to other bookstores (and probably to other branches of Fully Booked).
The Crafts Section is located on the 2nd Floor of Fully Booked. They used to have a confusing display arrangement and I found it hard to locate the crochet books. When I went there last week though, guess where I found most of the crochet books...on the bottom part of the shelf.

Bottom? Tsk, disgrace :p I had to squat (with that skirt on). Well at least they're all together now. And seeing them all together made me feel, well, happy (yes, I'm shallow).
All these books are imported (obviously). These books are priced from P500 to P1,200. Yep, they're expensive. If you're going to buy just one, you'll have a hard time choosing. I guess it will help if you skim through all of them and see what book can answer your crochet needs. Keep in mind as well if the designs in a book are unique enough that you won't be able to see free patterns of them on the internet. Having an actual crochet book can be motivating and inspiring (compared to getting patterns on the internet).

Hit the jump for some of the titles found in Fully Booked High Street (as of October 5, 2012).

Here's some more:

One thing to remember when you get to Fully Booked: CONTROL. Don't go on an impulse buy even if you can afford it. Make sure your purchase will go somewhere - meaning, you will actually crochet a project and finish it.
