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?

FREE BOOK Giveaway: Faery Tale by Signe Pike at BittenByBooks!

About the Book:
Signe Pike, was an NYC book editor for whom the magic of high-speed, big-city life had worn off. As a child, she and her father walked in the woods where she would look for fairies. Upon her father’s death, Signe was just 25 years old, she upped and left her NYC publishing life—embarking on a journey across the globe to all of the places where fairies mythologically live—in hopes of regaining some of that childhood magic.
Faery Tale One Woman’s Search for Enchantment in a Modern World (Perigee Hardcover; $23.95; November 2, 2010) Signe Pike’s engaging account of that journey. Part travel memoir, part anthropological study—an Eat, Pray, Love of the fairy world—it’s an inspiring story for anyone who feels like we’ve lost the magic of youth and need something to believe in again.
Signe travels to Mexico, England , Ireland , Scotland and New York . She explores dark glens, abandoned forests, ancient sacred sites and dimly lit local pubs. The colorful characters she encounters, who take fairy-hunting very seriously, are sure to get a laugh from readers.
Captivating, full of heart, and unabashedly whimsical, Faery Tale is more than a memoir-it’s the story of rekindling that spark of belief that makes even the most skeptical among us feel like a child again.
Contest runs through October 22, 2010 at 11:59 pm CDT. Open to entrants in the US only. These will be shipping from the PUBLISHER Perigee Trade who has generously donated them for this giveaway.
