Dread Champion (Chelsea Adams, #2) 
Summary:  "Chelsea Adams has visions. But they have no place in a courtroom.As a juror for a murder trial, Chelsea must rely only on the evidence. And thiscircumstantial evidence is strong---Darren Welk killed his wife.Or did he?The trial is a nightmare for Chelsea. The other jurors belittle her Christian faith. As testimony unfolds, truth and secrets blur. Chelsea's visiting niece stumbles into peril surrounding the case, and Chelsea cannot protect her. God sends visions---frightening, vivid. But what do they mean? Even as Chelsea finds out, what can she do? She is helpless, and danger is closing in. . . .Masterfully crafted, Dread Champion is a novel in which appearances can deceiveand the unknown can transform the meaning of known facts. One man's guilt orinnocence is just a single link in a chain of hidden evil . . . and God uses theunlikeliest of people to accomplish his purposes."
Why I want to read this:  This is the sequel to a book I really enjoyed.  This one finally came in from the library so now I get to see what happens next.   Time for a little courtroom suspense!

 Blogging for Dummies 
Summary:  Well the title should say it all, but here is the official summary:  "Everybody's doing it! And while that logic never got far with your mother, it's a fine reason to start blogging, especially if you have a business to build or a cause to promote. Well-run blogs do more than offer an outlet for your thoughts. They've actually influenced everything from a company's image to the outcome of a local election.Because the blogosphere is pretty crowded, it's a good idea to find out a bit about the anatomy of a blog, what makes a good one, and what it takes to keep one going before you dive right in and start sharing with the world. "Blogging For Dummies, 2nd Edition" gives you all the basics so you can get a good start. And if you've been around the blog a few times and want to advance to the next level, "Blogging For Dummies, 2nd Edition" even takes a look at podcasting and videoblogging."

"You'll find out how to: Make your blog stand out in a crowd, build an audience, and even make it payChoose the best software options, boost readership, and handle commentsGenerate revenue from your blog with ads and sponsorshipsProtect your privacy and your jobDeal with spam and the inappropriate comments from that guy who posts several times a dayFind your nicheAttract and keep readersUse your blog to promote your business, cause, or organizationAdd audio, video, cool widgets, and more"

Why I want to read this:  I wish to better improve this blog for you, my readers.  I am not the most tech savvy.  A book worm yes, but I still want to make this site fun for everyone and more productive for us all.  Hopefully this might have some insight.

One Piece, Volume 17: Hiruluk's Cherry Blossoms (One Piece, #17) 
Summary:  "It's the final showdown with the metallic King Wapol! He wants his castle back and he's not taking "no" for an answer. Well, Luffy, Sanji and their newfound friend Tony Tony Chopper aren't giving up so easily! But our heroes have their hands full--especially with Wapol's ability to modify his body depending on what he eats! Meanwhile, down the mountain in Big Horn village the people are devastated as their beloved leader lies in the snow, badly injured. But all is not lost when Wapol's deadly 20 Doctors make an unbelievable announcement"
*Please note, this is volume 17 of a series! *
Why I want to read this:  I have had fun with this series so far but have not read any volumes for awhile.  I need to change that  a bit.  I like most manga series.  This one is a quick read full usually full of a good blend of action and comedy.
