Social Media: Social Media Marketing Strategies – A seriously basic overview of social media. I didn’t pick up any new tips from this one. Avoid unless you don’t know what social media is, then it might be a good, simple explanation for you.
Poor Girl’s Guide to Fame and Fortune: Learn How to Go From Nobody to Somebody On a Shoestring Budget and Prove Your Worth – Eh, this is another one that was pretty basic. It had a few tips about building your brand & working it on social media. I can’t say I learned anything new – but, again, if you are new to the idea of online marketing this could be for you. There is a lot of advice on believing in yourself & thinking positively too. That is never bad advice.
Chasing the Ripper – Behind the scenes information about Patricia Cornwell’s investigation for writing Portrait of a Killer. Pretty interesting stuff – she is convinced Jack the Ripper was a prominent British artist names Walter Sickert. This book seems to be defending that position even more since the Ripperologists ripped her a new one for the original book lol.
The Seven Principles of Mastery (The Swordsman’s Quick Guide Book 1) – Mostly about the basics of learning a new skill. Not so much about fencing in particular. Still, a good, quick read. FYI: it’s free on Amazon right now, for anyone.
The Memory Box – I couldn’t put this one down. I couldn’t wait to find out what was real & what wasn’t. A lot of times I felt the writing was a bit confusing & uneven but maybe that was on purpose to add to the schizophrenic feel of the plot. It worked. Just reading it I felt a little out of control. Weird right?
Crawlspace – This one was weird but not in the way I was expecting. At the end of it all I kind of feel like “What was the point?” even though it kept me reading to see what happened next.
Brain: The Man Who Wrote the Book That Changed the World – This was refreshingly amusing. I’m going to go ahead & recommend this one.
