Books I received for Christmas.

05 Jan

Some of the Books I received this Christmas.

I received some lovely books this year, some which will be really helpful with my blog.

The first was from my Gran-in-Law, she knows I love to cook but don’t have an awful lot of time in the evenings. So hopefully this Gordon Ramsay fast food book will be very helpful and delicious.

I also received a fiction book called ‘Chocolate Wishes’. This was from my blogger Christmas gift swap friend Shannon. I have written a separate post on that, which you can find on my blog. I am very excited to read this and I will write a review on it when I finish it.

I also received two great blogging books from my lovely Hubby. He has seen how much I have enjoyed my blog and since I only started it in April, less than a year I will take all the help that I can. So, these books look really good.

Blogging for Dummies will certainly have some great tips for me, but also I have found that some of the information in there I do already know. This made me feel like quite an accomplished blogger. Go me!! 😉

Blogging for Happiness is looking really good too. It does make me very happy, and so does reading. So the two will just go hand in hand. I’m really looking forward to reading this book.

I was also very lucky to have been given a years subscription to The Good Food Magazine. I have subscribed to this before, but ended it a while ago. I used to get so excited about the new issue coming through the door, now I will have that again.

Hopefully I will find lots of delicious recipes to cook and bake. Then I can tell you all about them here on my blog!

The last book is ” 101 Great Things Every Woman Needs to Remember”. So, for all you other great women out there, let me give you some good things to remember:

You are beautiful when you speak and act from the heart.

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.

You’ve got a style all of your own….. and its cool.

I think I need to read this every once in a while to remind myself of all the positives and to behave and believe accordingly.

So, these are some of the books I received as gifts this Christmas. I still have plenty of other books on my to be read list, mainly from author / publisher requests. I will keep reading, keep writing and keep enjoying it all. That’s the best way, and the way I will be starting off my new year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY READERS AND FOLLOWERS.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ME THROUGHOUT THE PAST YEAR, I HOPE YOU WILL KEEP SUPPORTING ME INTO 2015 AND BEYOND.

I INTEND TO KEEP WRITING, I HOPE YOU WILL KEEP READING.

HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THIS LOVELY NEW YEAR.

AS QUOTED FROM ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BOOKS:

Tomorrow is fresh, with no mistakes in it”    Anne of Green Gables.

      Yes, it is. I love the ‘…..for Dummies’ books anyway. I think they give informed but simplified explanations of things. I haven’t read too much of this book yet, but from what I have read, it looks really good.
      Good luck with your blogging.

      I haven’t read it all yet, but things like how to think positively. How to be creative with your blog. Using blogging to let off steam.
      Then there is a section about how to blog, ad then blogging for money.
      There is quite a range of things so that there will be something for all bloggers, whatever your reasons for blogging.
      I would recommend it.
      Amanda.
