BOOKS AND BLOGGING PHILOSOPHY
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.
NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!
NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!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?

For the full content of the blog that set me off ,check out the link below but I saw red when seeing the "old fashioned" remark and just had to respond. What about you?
"And yeah, I'm seeing people standing in lines reading their Kindle, their Sony, their Nook. Oh, yes, and the old fashioned paper books. It's a people thing. Whatever floats your boat."
"and the old fashioned paper books" Well, I guess I'm just
destined to be old fashioned if reading a REAL book is old
fashioned. Besides the fact that I like holding a book in
my hands, turning pages, and reading at the pool and in the
tub, it just doesn't make sense to me to fork out $300-
$400 for a reader to hold ebooks that cost as much as my
old fashioned paper book, that I'd be afraid to use it at the
pool or in the tub, that I can't loan to a friend and god
forbid should I lose it. Then I'm out the price of the
reader and possibly a thousand dollars worth of books(cause I
READ lots of books). Thank goodness if I lose my old
fashioned book, hey so what, I can buy another without having
to sell my first grandchild. It's not that I'm against
technology, jeez we got computers, cell phones, large
screen TVs, I-pods(hell we even use one on the
motorcycle) and radios in our helmets. We got technology out
the ying-yang in our life. I just see the outrageous cost
of whole thing and can't believe that people have been
suckered into it. I'm not saying I'll never have one but
besides the cost going to have to drop drastically, there
will have to be many more technological changes to the
readers to get me to get one.
