Betrayal of Thieves, by C. Greenwood

Betrayal of Thieves, by C. Greenwood

Currently I am reading Betrayal of Thieves, which is the second book of the Legend of Dimmingwood series, by C. Greenwood.  I just realized after work as I was swiping through the pages of my eBook, that there is so much more series that I want to read and I can’t wait to get done with this one.  Its not that I am not enjoying Greenwood’s work of course, its just that there is so much out there to explore.  In this article I’m going to let off some steam by sharing with you 2 interesting series that I plan on reading after The Legend of Dimmingwood. Maybe if you just finished a series and looking for a new one this might help. (more…)

It’s nice to collect your favorite books and place it on your bookshelf to read again for later.  It is a hassle however to be carrying a book around just so you have something to do while waiting for an appointment or have some down time.  That’s why eBooks have become a really big thing for me.  You can carry 100 books in the palm of your hand, compared to 5 physical books you would need a bag or both hand to carry around.  All you need is a device that can read the eBook that you downloaded.  It could be your IPod, smart phone, laptop, eReader and etc.  Technology has made reading so much easier.

Now if money is low and your look for free eBooks to read, you’ve come to the right place.  I currently wrote a review on a book I downloaded from free-ebooks.net, Birth of the Half Elves, by H. L. Watson.  It has an easy set-up method for creating an account.  With your free account you can download up to 5 free eBooks of your choice a month.  Now if you are avid reader and 5 is not enough you can upgrade your account with a small payment.

Free-ebooks.net has a number of categories to choose from, such as Animal & pets to Self-improvement books.  So if non-fictional books are not your cup of tea, there are other genres you can choose from.  The fun doesn’t stop there this site also helps aspiring writers to share their books to the millions of people using their website.   Check out Free-ebooks.net, and download your free eBooks now.

As you can see by the activity in my blog it is fairly new.  Not only do I not have a lot of content within my page, I am also new to the blogging community as well.  After doing a little bit of research one method I found that can be really helpful is linking to other blogs.  Linking is a method in creating a relationship with other bloggers.  Within a post you are currently writing or have written you can provide a link that directs your readers to another bloggers blog.  Not only does this help the other blogger as well, but it can help you.

Starting my blog my purpose was to write reviews of different type of books that I have read.  Being new to all this I had to search for examples and references to get an idea on how I should proceed.  One blogger that really caught my attention was Tara (The Librarian), she is the owner of The Librarian Who Doesn’t Say Shhh.

What I really find fascinating about this blog is her approach on her reviews.  On her sidebars she has an image of her grading system “A, B, C, D, F and O”.  Within her reviews she gives her perspective of the book she is reviewing.  At the end of the read she grades it A for Amazing, B for good,  C for average, D for good try, F for book failed, and O for the books she didn’t finish.  Tara also gives her recommendations of what type of audience would be more appreciative of the book.  Overall I feel that she has done and is doing a really amazing job, and has some really interesting content.
