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?

The Hunger Games! Tickets Going on Sale Early!

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.  

Lionsgate  announced yesterday, January 9th, that the tickets would go on sale  74 days before the film's release, on February 22nd. You can buy your tickets via or

I only recently read this series and oh my gosh, it was awesome. I was either gripping the book so hard that the pages were about to tear or bawling my eyes out. I read the trilogy books back to back in probably 4 days and I really tried to make  the last book take longer as I did not want it to end. I can't imagine if I'd read these books when they came out and had to wait a year between them. I'd have been crazy. Sometimes being the last one to the party has it's up side. While I seriously doubt the movie could possibly be as good as the books (they never are) and how could they put all the horrific things in the movies that the books covered (no way), I'm still going to see this one as soon as possible. If I was told I couldn't  see but one movie this year, this is the one that I'd see.

Thanks for the info! I didn't know 2-22-12 was the release date--why that's not far away at ALL!
