Our Best Reads For January

Gerard's Pick is Daemon by Daniel Suarez
This Book is Awesome! 10 stars

I read an article about this book in USA TODAY and thought I would give it a shot. I'm so glad I did. This book grabs you from the first page and does not let go! The twists and turns in this book are fascinating. You do not need to be computer literate to enjoy this book. The only downside to this book is that you have to wait until next year for the sequel. I'll be reading that for sure. If you want to start the year off with a terrific book, this is the one to read! I highly recommend it.

Karen's Pick is Blogging For Dummies by Susannah Gardner and Shane Birly

This is a very helpful book for anyone who is beginning to blog and even for a person like me who has started to blog for about eight months but is still learning along the way. The authors give many websites where the reader can go to see exactly what the text is referring to. I finally learned the HTML code for doing lists in posts from this book. It also covers suggestions for getting traffic to your blog and how to get and handle comments. I highly recommend it for any blogger, especially beginners.

I bought the Blogging for Dummies book when I first started too. It was very helpful.

I think I'd love to read Gerard's book. Not so sure about the blogging for dummies though. I'm so burned out on blogging at the moment. Thanks Karen for sharing.
