Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo. Yet another wonderful read by DiCamillo. This book won this year's Newberry Award, and it certainly deserved it. It is a great take on superheroes, and any girls who loved (or still loves) comic books will enjoy this one. The adorable illustrations are a real treat, too.
Blog, Inc. by Joy Deangdeelert Cho. I picked up this book from the sale rack at Powell's on a whim, and I'm very glad I did. I enjoy reading books that blend creativity with business sense, and this book combines the two beautifully. Since I've been trying over the past few months to revamp my blog, I found this reference very helpful for strategizing.
SEO Made Easy by Evan Bailyn. Since getting my CPA, I have been very interested in learning more business topics that would help me in my own work as well as in consulting with other clients. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is something that I found daunting and mystifying before reading this book, but Bailyn makes it very clear and simple to grasp. His book is particularly successful because it doesn't rely on any sort of tricks. His best method for SEO is to make your site the type of site that people want to find, making this a book to help with clever content and connecting with colleages as much as a book on computer skills.
