Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is the ultimate page turner book filled with unexpected occurrences throughout the story as well as a twist or cliff hanger at the end of each chapter. This book immerses you into a digital world in which anything is possible. The characters have diverse opinions and ever changing emotions. As the book continues and the characters are even more immersed in their digital paradise where the hunt for the creator of the world’s fortune is on, you become a spectator in these shocking turn of events. This was one of the best books that I have ever read and I highly recommend it to people who like futuristic and science fiction books.
For many years, we used the Blogger platform for my classes. Since it is owned by Google, it integrates pretty seamlessly with your Google accounts — which made it easy to use, in some respects — but it is a very limited and bug-ridden platform. So we have decided to construct a new class blog from scratch using the most more powerful and stable WordPress platform.
