Altering, Vintage, Shabby Chic

So I've been wanting to get more into altering books and stuff and was looking for a good book. Celine has lots on her blog from amazon and I saw a few that appealed to me, with good reviews.
BUT if you're into altering, vintage, Shabby Chic etc. what is YOUR fave book and do you know these ?????

Fanciful Paper Projects: Making Your Own Posh Little Follies
by Sandra Evertson

Altered Books, Collaborative Journals, and Other Adventures in Bookmaking
by Holly Harrison

Fabric Art Journals: Making, Sewing, and Embellishing Journals from Cloth and Fibers (Quarry Book)
by Pam Sussman

Fabric Memory Books: Techniques, Projects, Inspiration
by Lesley Riley (Author)

Oh and do you know this site "Good Reads" ? I was invited by Amber to join it and it's fun to see what you're friends are reading and what they think of a certain book. Now I need to figure out how to add another address list to it as I only added some of my scrapfriends and I have lots more LOL.
