Cyber Monday's 5 Best Book Deals

Cyber Monday was a phenomenon born out of Black Friday's success. The idea is that after consumers had had their shopping deals in brick and mortar stores, they were ready to sit down at home in front of their computers and browse for further holiday deals - this time from online stores.

A Blogger's Books - as expected - now brings you Cyber Monday's biggest book deals. There are hundreds of books from every category. However, I'm just going to pinpoint a few publications that caught my eye and interest. Buckle up your seat belts. Here we go!

America by Heart

America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag

This hard cover book has been reduced by half price ($12.98) for Cyber Monday Book Deals.  It's sold quite well, even though many Americans (and the rest of the world) have their reservations about this politician. If you've ever wanted to find out what Sarah Palin got up to post elections, here's your chance to do so.

10 Ways To Create A Popular Blog Post

It’s exciting to create a new blog post. You plan it, think of what you’ll say and how you’ll say it. You write it and go through several edits to make it the best it could be. You want to help your readers achieve a solution in their lives, or to contribute positively to their existence. Or maybe the aim of your blog post is to help them achieve something fantastic. Finally, your post is perfect. You upload it to your blog, only to find that merely 12 of your followers have read it, let alone the strangers browsing on the web.

How the Internet Stole Christmas

There's a large amount of material on the web debating how the Internet has impacted on the way we read. We may be buying just as many books as we did ten years ago (perhaps even more), but the growing popularity of e-Books means we're reading more and more from Kindles and i-Pods.

Most writing blogs acknowledge the impact the Internet has on books, even though we haven't all made up our minds if this influence is a good thing or a negative one. One thing we can all concur is that our reading habits is not the only thing being influenced by the Internet.The past few years have seen the development of new holiday traditions in many homes.

Is the Internet making the holidays better

Spending time with family is, of course the ultimate holiday goal for most of us. Thanksgiving with an abundance of food would still be lacking if family members weren't there. However, we're allowing access to the Internet to make it almost okay to be absent from loved ones. One can easily get a medium-priced laptop with a webcam as standard. Families on separate sides of the globe can virtually 'come together' in one room by just the click of a button. While we're not eating together any more (and some may say this is a good thing) the Internet allows us to 'meet', 'talk' and 'spend time together'. We reveal only as much as we want to. We can pull on a tee-shirt while wearing pyjama bottoms, but no one would be the wiser on the other side of the web cam. After twenty minutes (or less) we can click that button, sign out, and go check who's replied to our recent Facebook profile update. We've done the family time. There's no one hanging around to bother us.

The Internet does allow us to have greener holidays

We've almost started a new Christmas tradition in our family. We aim to have greener Christmases, so we never have a real tree. We've invested in a fantastic artificial Christmas tree, which we re-wrap carefully after use each year and store away in our loft (attic). Because most people we know are now latched onto the Internet for dear life, (literally) we send most of our Christmas greetings as e-Cards. The Internet has so impacted on our holidays that the e-mails we send out to friends and family during this time actually makes us feel like we've made an effort to communicate. But is this really communication?

Christmas used to be about people dropping by for a meal or presents. Now an email and an e-Card will suffice. While the Internet, by all means, has empowered us to be every where, all the time, I think it has taken away the personal touch needed to maintain close relationships. Have you noticed how we already prefer to chat with people who're thousands of miles away from us (on Facebook and Twitter) rather than the ones sitting near to us in our homes? What impact is this phenomenon going to have on our Christmas and Thanksgiving this year?

Are we all going to sit by our phones and laptops texting and updating our profiles and tweets and ignore our families? Will the Internet steal your Christmas this year?
