Would you like to: Go Here Instead

The Alternative Travel List

by DK Eyewitness

GoHereInstead #NetGalley

This book would make a great holiday gift for a person who likes to travel, even if that person is you. It is filled places to go that are a bit less traveled.

This title is organized by subjects including Ancient and Historical Sights; Festivals and Parties; Great Journeys; Architectural Marvels; Natural Wonders; Art and Culture, and Captivating Cities. For each well known destination, an alternative is offered. To give an example, the first suggestion in the book is to go to the Pyramids of Saqqara and Dahshur, instead of the Great Pyramids. Or, think of Avebury, instead of Stonehenge or the Wellington Fringe instead of the Scottish festival. These are just a few of the 100 ideas.

This beautifully illustrated book is a terrific resource. I want to get out of my armchair (travel) and go away.

Many thanks to DK Eyewitness Travel and NetGalley for this title. All opinions are my own.

Christmas Stories for Kids by Angela Zigann

This is a book of sweet, original Christmas stories for the youngest children to read with an adult. The illustrations are just lovely and perfectly go with the stories. Read about a young giraffe who couldn’t wait for Christmas or a story about Bill the Bird’s long day t9 name two. All in all, this is a cute title.

Is it? It’s News to Me by R G Belsky

#ItsNewstoMe #NetGalley

I think that this book flew under the radar but it is deserving of attention for those who enjoy mystery and suspense stories. The protagonist is a reporter who endeavors to serve journalism well-a perfect message for our times.

This is the fifth story to feature Clare and what a story she has to cover. Seemingly perfect and ambitious, a college student, Riley, has been murdered. A war vet is suspected but there are others who ought to be including the men in whom Riley was interested. They are a police official and a man with ties to the underworld.

Will Riley get to file her story? Will the case be solved? I recommend reading this title to find out.

6 Practice Tests for the GRE

by Vibrant Publishers

This book does exactly what it sets out to do. It will absolutely familiarize students with the format and content of the exam.

The book begins with a very helpful introduction that is packed with information about the GRE. There are many suggestions here for preparing oneself to take the test, along with a description of the mechanics of taking the exam on the computer. Next come the six sample tests. Students can review their answers and hopefully learn where they need to concentrate their attention.

This publisher is releasing a number of titles that will be helpful to those who are thinking about grad school. I definitely recommend this for its intended audience.

Many thanks to NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for this tile. All opinions are my own.
