Sunday Reads: What I have been reading lately

1. Unstuck:by Arnie Cole and Micael Ross

I got stuck in the pages of Unstuck. I found this book to be written in a style that was not of my liking. I struggled immensely to get through all the analytical data from surveys.

The main point I did get from struggling my way through the book’s 248 pages was if you want to grow closer to God read your bible often and read it with meaning.

I did enjoy some of the personal testimonies shared in the book about how individuals were redeemed from their messy lives by a deeper relationship with God found through daily bible reading.

(this book was provide for me for the purpose of review from Bethany House)

2. Touching The Sky: by Tracie Peterson

Touching the Sky is the second in Tracie Peterson’s Land of the Lone Star series. I read and enjoyed the first book in the series entitled Chasing the Sun and was glad to hear that Bethany had accepted my request to review the second.

I was immediately surprised that the two books are not linked by characters. Only one character from Chasing the Sun makes his way into the pages of Touching the Sky, and he does not arrive till mid way through the book, and only has a small part to play.

However, my disappointment with Touching the Sky ends with that small point.

I found this book to be a carefree read filled with a message of love and faith.

Note of caution, once you get to chapter 24 it is very likely that you won’t be able to put it down until the very last page.

I am now anxiously awaiting the third book in the “Land of the Lone Star” series entitled Taming the Wind

3. How to Use Pinterest: by Kate Buck Jr. & Lopser

I got “How To Use Pinterest” while it was offered for free in Kindle form from Amazon a while back.

It is a very short read with just 7 extremely short chapters, that took me less than one hour to complete.

However this mini book is cram full of ideas of how bloggers can make the most out of their pinterest account to promote their site.

It also discusses how to better track the traffic your pins are getting on pinterest.

I don’t believe it is long enough, or informative enough to be worth the $2.99 asking price, however if you can catch it when it is on sale, I would definitely recommend picking it up if you have a blog and desire to use pinterest to the fullest of its potential to drive traffic to your site.
