Have You Ever Thought Of Writing An EBook

  I have never myself thought of writing an EBook . Recently a friend of mine sent my family an invitation to an ebook that his wife wrote. Maybe I may look into writing some short ebooks. I have looked around the internet and there are numerous websites with tutorials and courses on how to write an ebook or how to get started. I would look for books on Amazon, Ebay and at your local bookstore such as Barnes and Noble.
  Just remember that you can write short eBooks and sell them for a small amount of money on your blog. If you want to write a longer more involved eBook it will take some time to write. Unless you are one of those people that can just write anything off the top of their head. If you do see a book somewhere I would check out any reviews on the book in question. I would say the bigger the book the higher the price should be. I would not make it an outrages price, because they may scare people away.
  Also make sure your eBook is about something you love. That way you will write it in a way that people will know it was important to you. Write about something you have some good experience in. I would also try and put some humor in what you write. Nobody wants to read something that makes you bored. It you have a writers block just walk away from it for awhile and then go back to it. We all have times when we have to stop and take a break. You may see something somewhere and it just triggers a thought. Then you can start writing again.
  Here are some links to some websites on writing ebooks, http://www.moneycrashers.com/write-publish-ebook/ and http://www.wikihow.com/Write-Your-First-eBook . Here is a link to some free ebook software for creating ebooks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_E-book_software . There are numerous websites with information on writing ebooks. Just be careful if they try to sell you something or want your approval to place some program om your computer. There are alot of malicious programs out there. Always check for any reviews on the software in question.

Favorite Books For The Young And Old

  What are the favorite books with people today one may ask. Well in my day it was Grimm's Fairy Tales or Aesop's Fairy Tales. In fact I can remember watching those cartoons every Saturday or Sunday morning. Yes getting up early, eating my toast and watching those funny cartoons. I remember the Grimm's Fairy Tales from a book that my Aunt had. I seem to remember sleeping over with my cousins and maybe my Aunt reading those stories to us. If I remember right there were little cut out characters that were elves at the top of the wall in my cousins room. That really goes back a long way.
  So at the present day what books are really popular. Well I think most everyone might know the answer. Yes today it seems to be the Harry Potter books. It all started with the Harry Potter movie and has just kept going. Every time I turn on the television all I see is Harry Potter. They are the kind of books that children love to read, because it takes them with their imagination into another world. I know when I have watched the movies I get somewhat captivated by them and want to watch more. All in all I would have to say these are just well written stores that will be told for generations to come. It's like watching Scrooge every Christmas, where it has become a tradition with me.
  Another one of the newest popular movies that have come out and is in a book is the Hunger Games. It is becoming another popular book and I am sure there will be a series of them. They have already come out with two movies. The Chronicles Of Narnia is another popular title in science fiction and fantasy. It is yet another book that will take the reader into another world and get you to expand your imagination. There are so many books in this category you will just have to search for yourself and decide which one makes you feel happy.
  Thank You for reading and have a nice day. 

How Do I Repair My Computer Or Upgrade It


  Everyone who owns a computer should know how to do general repairs. You should also know how to upgrade your own computer or at least know what to ask for if you take it to a computer service center. My advise to anyone is if you are not comfortable with changing components in your computer then by all means take it to a professional computer service shop. I would just suggest that before you take it anywhere check on the internet for good and bad reviews on the service center you may have found. You are the buyer and you should always protect yourself.
  Okay back to the subject at hand. There are plenty of excellent books available through either Amazon.com and Ebay. You can find books on Troubleshooting Desktops and Laptop Computers. Generally these books also cover Repairing Desktops and Laptop Computers as well. As I looked through the lists of books I noticed that the reviews all looked very good for the most part. I would also recommend finding books on upgrading your computer. You can go to the manufacturer of you computer such as Dell, look up by the service tag number on the back or side of the computer and insert it in the proper space at Dell Support. You can look up the specifications on your particular model desktop or laptop. Other manufacturers have the same procedure, but may go by the serial number.
  Troubleshooting Desktop and Laptops are pretty much the same routine. The only difference it that taking a laptop apart can be very tricky due to all the screws involved and plastic catches that can be brittle due to age. There are some books available on taking laptop computers apart. I would also suggest looking on youtube, because there are videos on how to take a particular brand and model apart. It's always very important to get a visual procedure on what to to. I also use this when I am working on Electronic Components such as a Television, Stereo, Cb Radio or Ham Radio.
  Along with Troubleshooting, Repairing and Upgrading Computers come the building of primarily Desktop Computers. With Laptop Computers there is very little to upgrade. Most Laptop Upgrades consist of upgrading Memory, Hard Drive, Maybe a Microprocessor and a Video Card if the Laptop has a separate video card . You usually see video cards in higher end laptops or in Gaming Laptops. Desktop Computers can have almost anything upgraded from a power supply, memory, processor, hard drive, video card, sound card, dvd burner, blueray player, motherboard, card reader and even the computer case itself. It should be noted that most upgrades can be done with respect to what the motherboard can handle.
  I would use the amazon store below the posts to search for whatever book or books you are looking for. Usually there is an Ebay search off to the right of the posts. Otherwise I would search online or at your local bookstore. Remember Christmas is right around the corner.

Books For Ham Radio

 
   I am a Ham Radio Operator with my General License. The one thing I have found is there are books associated with Ham Radio for all different kinds of subjects. There are many books on building various antennas such as Moxon Antennas, Yagi Antennas, Quad Antennas and many more. One of the easiest to build and does a very good job is the wire Dipole Antenna. So if you are in the Ham Radio Hobby and you like building your own antennas buy some books on them. There are also plenty of Ham Radio Websites out there with tons of information on building antennas. Here are a couple of links to some good websites for building Ham Antennas http://www.hamuniverse.com/antennas.html and http://www.ve3sqb.com/ .
  Another part of the Ham Radio Hobby is obtaining your various Ham Radio Licenses. Yes there various Ham Radio Websites where you can study the material and take practice tests before you go and take the actual test. I did that with my Technician License and then for my General License. I also had some old books from Radio Shack that were based on Gordon Wests books. My advise is to buy the different books for reading, learning and studying for the Ham Radio License you are going to get. Just remember they go in this order Technician, General and Extra. You can buy just the study book or an audio cd with the course and I believe it has a cd that you can install on your computer to practice taking the tests. There are other books available for studying as well such as the ARRL books, which are very good as well as many more.
  There are plenty of other books in Ham Radio such as Shortwave Radio Listening, Log Books for keeping information on your contacts, ARRL Manuals with all kinds of information. There are books on learning about Ham Radio and how it got started. You can also find technical books on repairing your Ham Radio Equipment and Troubleshooting it when something goes wrong. You can also find books on learning how to speak on Ham Radio and what the different kinds of Jargon and Q-Codes mean. One thing I would recommend is buying one of the books on learning all the rules and regulations of Ham Radio from the FCC.
  Well That's all for now and Remember CHRISTMAS IS GETTING CLOSER.

Everyone Loves Childrens Books

  There are so many children's books it's hard to think of where to start. Thinking back on children's books I remember those books that were not very thick and had big letters. They had pictures with the writing to give the child a visual effect on what they were reading. Besides if it were just words I think children would get bored and stop reading. I know with myself when there are pictures it keeps my attention.
  So thinking back what were my favorite children's books. If I am going to be honest it has to be the Dr Seuss books. I will never forget reading Green Eggs and Ham. Of course there is the favorite of everyone The Cat In The Hat and also the Lorax. Finally the favorite of children everywhere is How The Grinch Stole Christmas. I don't think I will ever forget those awesome books. Plus the Grinch is on every Christmas in a cartoon and in the movie with Jim Carry as the Grinch.
  So what some other popular books for children. Some of the current popular books are The Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, Frozen, First 100 Words and The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm . There are so many good books for children I can not list them all. My advise is to use the book store below and search for children's books. You can also use the search off to the right of the book store. I would collect as many children's educational books as you can and get your kids started early. My kids are now older and one is married, so one of these days there will be some grandchildren coming along. I am looking forward to one of these days reading them one of my favorite books.
  Thank You for reading and Have A Nice Day.

Well I Have Decided To Do A Blog On All Kinds Of Books

  I think everyone at some time will buy a book for some reason. I have been buying books for years ever since I was a young child. It may have just been a child's story book or even a comic book. Either way we always have books at some time. I remember having to buy a book in school and even when I was in college. I have bought books for religious reasons as well as books for learning something such as Ham radio. It just seems like it is something we all will be doing throughout our whole lives.
  I think the buying books is just our way as human beings to feed our brains. We just need to absorb as much knowledge as we can. Books can take us to an imaginary world where we can just get lost. We can dream about places where we want to go some day. Reading books may start someone on a career path for becoming a writer your self. maybe someday you will become a teacher and enjoy reading a story to your class. I remember when I used to read stories to my children when they were young. Just to watch the look on their faces as I read something like Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.
  What you will find is that there are books for all kinds of subjects. Maybe you need to repair something or maybe you want to build something. I remember buying music books for playing the guitar for some of my favorite artists. I still have all the books from college when I went for electrical engineering. I guess I have created my own little library with the books I have bought through the years. Well that's what this blog is about, books and learning from books.
  Thank You for reading and I hope you will enjoy my blog on books.
