The Test

by Patricia Gussin
Thursday, February 11, 2010

Wow, what a gripping book. "Determined to leave something more valuable than money to his 6 children, philanthropist Paul Parnell stipulates a most unusual will "The Test". One year to make a difference and for a fractured family- what a year"
 
A cannot put down novel!

This book covers many forms of social networking - blogs, wikis, message boards and mailing lists, RSS, tags, podcasts and a few others.

Each chapter begins with definitions of a few key words, and follows with why and how this technology is used. He also gives you a few suggestions to try out and apply your new knowledge. Definitely not just for genealogists.

Patterson's books with short chapters make for a quick read. Fascinating history book.

He follows little traveled, sometimes impassable highways and byways between the United States into Canada. He travels with little baggage, mainly his fishing gear and journals to transcribe his experiences. His goal was to fish in the many rivers and...

Rainwater

by Sandra Brown

This book includes some Texas and U.S. history in 1934 after the great depression, a child with autism, a single mother running a boarding house, and a helpful boarder. It is hard to put down and is typical of the great characters of Sandra Brown. I recommend it.
