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?

Burton's Book Review Interview Day!

I was asked to do an interview at Burton Book Review so I thought I would also share this with my followers. You can go to their site and check out other new bloggers  here .

I'm Lisa from Lisa's Loves Books Of Course ( I started blogging about 18 months ago. It was more an exercise to keep my reviews in one place rather than on dozens of sites on the net. I had semi-retired about 4 years earlier and was reading non-stop.
 I'd always read and often had two or three books going at any time. One in every vehicle I drove, one at work and one at home. I found myself buying books that sounded awesome, reading them half way through and realizing that I'd already read them. Awug! So I thought putting them in one place, my blog, would solve this problem. 
Unfortunately, I enjoyed reading others blogs looking for that next great series so much, that though I was still reading a lot, I wasn't getting my reviews written on a timely basis. This is something I constantly struggle with. 
I love to read Paranormals, historicals, some sci-fi, suspense, thrillers, YA's, and about anything that has some romance in it. My reviews are as eclectic as what I read. I don't always read and review the newest books that have just come out. I read what interests me and review them at my speed.
The most awesome thing I've done--raised three great kids who have gotten college educations, much of it with scholarships, to be productive and awesome adults. With one granddaughter, we are starting the next generation on this quest for education with a bang. Can't wait for the next 10 to 15 years as they are going to be freaking awesome.

I have a question for all of you. How do you decide what to read next especially if that series you've loved has finally ended?
