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 (#15) & FOLLOW FRIDAY (#5) Sept 4


Hosted by Jennifer from CRAZY FOR BOOKS http://www.crazy-for-books.com and
 PJ from PARAJUNKEE'S VIEW at http://www.parajunkee.com/




This week's question from Jennifer comes from:
Sarah @ SarahReadsTooMuch

Do you judge a book by its cover?

Although, a pretty, shiny , new cover may entice me to pick up a book and even rub it on occasion (yea, I know, you felt of the fang bites on that girl's neck too, admit it) it in no way effects how I ultimately judge the book. If the book sucks, I'll say so even if I must admit the cover was cute . See here. And if the book was wonderfully fascinating and the cover in no way reflected what went on between the pages, I'll tell you that too. A great cover would never entice me to buy a book only take a second look. The author's name, the blurb, other author's comments on the book and bloggers reviews are ultimately what makes me purchase a book and only what's between the covers makes me judge it. 


                              This week's Follow Feature Blog  is Candace from 

Check her blog out here.

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.


 Last week, I used the entry #s and anyone's whose entry number ended in a 3, I may have visited. This week, I think I'll  visit every other site that their entry site # ends in a 2, staring with 22.


I'm # 177 at CRAZY FOR BOOKS and # 86 at  PARAJUNKEE'S VIEW!
 If you sign MckLinky, please share the love and POST ABOUT THE HOP AND FOLLOW FRIDAY ON YOUR BLOG!  
How else will anyone else find out about it and come join the party?

Stopping by via the hop...I think it depends - there's a place and time when book covers come into play as to if I will read the book.

Happy Friday!

Well, I do too. I tend to pick up books based on the covers but whether I will actually buy or read them depends on the reviews and book blurbs.

See, a moment ago my eyes was caught by the covers of your MOST ANTICIPATED NEW BOOKS :-)

Sorry I took so long to return the Hop :) I love the idea of using a number to navigate that huge list of 320+ bloggers from the hop!

I tend to randomly go click click and open multiple pages at time - yours is so much more organized (I Like!)
