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?

Hosted by Jennifer from CRAZY FOR BOOKS 

and PJ at

Okay guy's it's FRIDAY! And you know what that means. Go get on over to Jennifer's and PJ's  and add   your name to McLinky and get ready to met and great new and old friends.

This week's question comes from: Books Are A Girl's Best Friend
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
What is the first book that you remember reading?
I do use a rating system. 1-5 stars and I use it as much for myself as for others. The longer I read though I find that what I once rated a 5 star book may not be so now. As my taste evolves  so does my rating system. 
The first book I remember buying and reading was a Nancy Drew book.
Though the first actual book read  would be the  Dick & Jane books.

 I use the entry #s to determine who to visit each week and anyone's whose entry number ended in a 4, I may have visited. This week, I think I'll  visit every other site that their entry site # ends in a 3, staring with 3.
 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?
This week I'm # 211 at and # 103 at

Hi :)

Thanks for visiting my blog :D
What a great system you have to visit blogs. I was so confused and just clicked any link which said YA next to it. Perhaps I'll try your method, if you don't mind. :)

Hopping back!

I've never heard of "Big". I should check it out! But yes Robin Williams was fantastic in "Jack"!

This will sound really delayed (by me), but I just realised you've created a bunny on your comments. Hehe, that's cool. :)

I'll try out your grand-daughter's system next week hopefully!

Thanks for stopping by! I agree with you about the old ratings - I have a few that I rated 5 stars and now I'm not sure I'd still consider them a 5. My standards have gotten higher, I guess! LOL!

Hi, I am visiting from the HOP! What a neat idea for deciding whick blogs to click on from the long Mr. Linky list! I just added The Awakening to my TBR list. Thanks for the great review.

I would love for you to say Happy Birthday to my daughter who just started a blog - today on her birthday...
Outpourings Of A Soul.
