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?

BOOK BLOGGER HOP July 2

Hosted by Jennifer from CRAZY FOR BOOKS http://www.crazy-for-books.com
Okay guy's it's FRIDAY! And you know what that means. Go get on over to Jennifer's and add your name to McLinky and get read to met and great new and old friends.

OPTIONAL TWIST:
On your blog hop post, tell us about some of the other great blogs you've found while Hopping around!
Tell us how you decide who to Hop to and check out. Last week, I used the entry #s and anyone whose entry number ended in a 2, I visited. This week, I think I'll  visit every other site that their entry site # ends in a 7, staring with 37.
New twist - Question of the week! 
This week we are supposed to tell our name and why we started blogging.

I'm Lisa and I started blogging more for myself than anything else.  It was simply a way to keep a copy of my reviews in one place. And of course it snowballed and has tried to take over my life. Some days I find I spend more time reading blogs than reading books so MUST CUT BACK SOMEHOW.

 If you sign MckLinky, please share the love and POST ABOUT THE HOP ON YOUR BLOG!  How else will anyone else find out about it and come join the party?
I'm # 38!
I'd also like to invite each of you to participate
 in my first ever Giveaway.
There will be 3 winners!
Check it out Here
