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?

Brought to You by Robert--Giving Up Wine

6d162  mm  



I was walking  down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty  and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of  dollars for dinner.
 
I took out my wallet, got out ten  dollars and asked, 'If I give you this money, will you buy  wine with it instead of dinner?'
 
'No, I had to stop  drinking years ago,' the homeless woman told me.
 
'Will  you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?' I  asked.
 
'No, I don't waste time shopping,' the homeless  woman said. 'I need to spend all my time trying to stay  alive.'
 
'Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead  of food?' I asked..
 
'Are you NUTS!' replied the homeless  woman... I haven't had my hair done in 20  years!'
 
'Well,' I said, 'I'm not going to give you the  money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my  husband and me tonight.'
 
The homeless woman was  shocked. 'Won't your husband be furious with you for doing  that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty  disgusting.'
 
I said, 'That's okay. It's important for  him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up  shopping, hair appointments, and wine.'

mmm

You're gonna send  it on - aren't you?
