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?

her comment on Reading to your Kids was
I agree that it is so important to read to your kids. We got my daughter her own library card last year. She will be 6 this year. I always check out a ton of books for her and she wants to read at least 3 in one sitting.

In the beginning, I did all the reading, complete with the voices and inflections. Now she wants to show off her reading skills. She especially enjoys reading TV captions -- usually while I'm watching.

One book we both enjoyed was THE LOUDS MOVE IN. She made me read that one 3 times in a row! We both really enjoy the books by Mo Willems. And I love the Berenstain Bears books and TV show too.
