Lists, Lists, Lists... How I love you!
Plus, did you know you can embed PowerPoint presentations in your blog? It's like a little miracle. It's also a big part of the reason I'm sharing LJ's 'Best of 2012' with you, at least in this format, so bloggers will know you can embed PPs if you so desire.
The only caveat is it really whacks out the spacing and HTML, so you have to go in and manually add returns and such or you'll have no spacing between paragraphs, or between the PP and text. Google how to embed PP presentations for your blogging platform and they'll have easy peasy steps for getting through it.
What DO you think of Library Journal's list of best books? It's a bit unconventional, not mentioning some of the same old books you'll find on other lists, like the New York Times best of and notables. I like the variety, the introduction to books I'd never have found otherwise. Believe it or not, some books actually DON'T make my radar, even with my book whore-ish proclivities.
Wiley Cash's book - A Land More Kind Than Home - gets my most fervent recommendation. Not only is it a superb book, Wiley Cash is the sweetest writer on the face of this earth. I interviewed him for BookBrowse.com and we also keep bumping into each other in various social media forums. If I were creating my own list of "Sure Bet Great Reads," ALMKTH would definitely be on it.
Maybe I should create that list... I'll cogitate on it.
Meanwhile, hope you enjoy the PP. If you have trouble with it, or like it ever so much, please drop me a comment. I'd love to hear what you think, partly because the PPs are so incredibly time-consuming to make.
P.S.: No, PP is not paying me to advertise for them...
