Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

Testimony: A Novel By Anita Shreve

Testimony: A Novel
Testimony: A Novel
Author: Anita Shreve
Book Type: Hardcover
Rating:* * * *1/2
Review Date: 5/30/2009

Parents of kids in high school and college need to read this story.You will never feel the same way about letting your teen out of your sight. I read it in less than 24 hours. At first I didn't like the style of the writing but it did give you a better feel for the characters. At once(being from NC)my first thought was of the Duke University scandal.Were the innocent boys, that were on the lacrosse team,lives ruined through no fault of their own simply because they were on that team?
The acts of an unthinking,unfeeling 14 year old girl sends shock waves through this private school and community, effecting so many. She never felt SHE had done anything wrong. The boys simply because of their age bore all the pain and humiliation while she basically walks away untouched. Alcohol can cause so much pain and and possibly death, even if the drinker doesn't get behind the wheel of a car.
