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?

Leslie Esdaile Banks-In Memory

Today we mourn the passing of L A Banks (Leslie Esdaile Banks) an awesome paranormal and urban fantasy author. For the last several months Leslie had been fighting a losing battle with cancer.
Though I did not know her, all readers feel a personal kinship with those whose books entertain us, keeping us up long after we should have gone to bed at night, making us gash our teeth at the long wait for that next novel, and making us laugh out loud at the heroine's snarky remarks while wishing we could come up with the countless come backs that they rain down on people's heads. Below are just a few of her books that I've read and loved (thanks to If you've missed any or have never read her awesome books, now would be a great time to show her family how much she will be missed.
