Googlelize Your Life
This book is a quick read that tells you everything you ever wanted to know about using Google. There are so many features I wasn’t even aware of. I’ve started using many of the applications already! Great book, even if you aren’t that great with computers.

author: Hornby, Nick
This is a romance on two levels: fan and famous, and man and woman. Duncan runs a website for an obscure, reclusive musician named Tucker Crowe. Duncan loves Tucker. Duncan’s girlfriend Annie posts a review of Tucker’s “Juliet, Naked” cd on Duncan’s website. Tucker responds to Annie’s review, and circumstances bring him to England to meet Annie. Now Annie loves Tucker. The problem is, Tucker doesn’t love anyone except his son Jackson. The story is amusing and contemporary, and the audio book is multi-voiced to give it more layers and authenticity. Hornby revisits his favorite themes of love, loss, and loneliness, but the witty dialog and endearing characters make this an enjoyable and easy experience.
