    ISBN: 978-0-9810852-0-3

    Publisher: Levac Publishing House  

    Candidly, I have to admit that before picking up a copy of Stephane Grenier’s Blog Blazers: 40 Top Bloggers Share Their Secrets to Creating a High-Profile, High Traffic, and High-Profit Blog, I didn’t have a clue as to the unique culture of blogging and its implications. In truth, I was blown away with Grenier’s metrics wherein he states that there are 70 million weblogs and about 120,000 new ones each day or 1.4 new blogs every second. As Grenier cites, you can find these statistics and more interesting ones from Technorati.com.  Undoubtedly, many of these blogs are a one shot posting, however, what about the ones that have been around for a long time?Why are the bloggers of these blogs successful and what makes them tick?

    This book was well written by a husband and wife team, Ken Beller and Heather Chase, and it briefly covers the lives of many well known and some not so well known peace makers who hail from many different backgrounds and have blessed the world with many different contributions.  Great Peacemakers undertook to give an overview of the life histories of these heroes and explain what made these people take up their humanitarian crosses.  It also shared with the reader the contributions that these people have made to the world, how we are in their debt and why we should hold these people in high esteem.

    This a marvelous read capturing the splendor, the fun and the characters from the heyday of New Zealand cinema.

    If you are a musician and your looking for another avenue of revenue, you may want to pick up a copy of Anne Roos’ The Musicians’ Guide To Brides: How To Make Money Playing Weddings. Although, I have not done any extensive research on the subject, I doubt if there is any other manual on the market that is as comprehensive as this one pertaining to wedding gigs.

    Most of us are familiar with canine bravery stories especially from the burning twin towers on 9/11, but how many of us know the story of Blackie, the “toughest dog in Da Nang”?




    This would make a great holiday  gift!

    Authors: Alpana Singh with Robert Scarola
    Publishers: Academy Chicago Publishers
    ISBN: 978-0-89733-546-1

    Alpana Pours is not like any wine book you’re likely to see on the shelves of your local bookstore. Instead of overwhelming you with arcane facts and vintages, Alpana Singh (TV hostess of Chicago’s “Check Please” restaurant review show on PBS) has written a lifestyle book centered on the subject of feeling comfortable around wine. It seems that for most people, wine can be a little intimidating. Most of us go to a nice restaurant, get handed a wine list, and then proceed to squirm in our seats, unsure what to order yet wishing to appear confident that the wine we select will be worth the big bucks we will pay out to enjoy this pleasure.
