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?

I'd love to jump into so many books, but The Iron Fey books by Julie Kagawa stand out more. :)

JessS said...

A lot of books are awesome partly because they create a world that you really DON'T want to live in, like The Hunger Games. So I'd have to go with either Harry Potter, or a Jane Austen novel. Thanks!

Nina C said...

Probably the same as a lot of people I'd love to jump into the world of Harry Potter. I think J.K. Rowling did such a good job of conjuring up the world in her books (let alone the movies) that it is so easy to imagine yourself as part of it. I'd love to be a character like Hermione.

Stephanie Verhaegen said...

The Infernal Devices!

Sarah Stikuts said...

Totally agree with Harry Potter :) I'd love to be a witch! Twilight wouldn't be too bad either, but only if I get to be a werewolf :)

Cassandra said...

Oh wow.. I have to pick just one book to leap into? It seems like a great idea when you're reading but when you see a lot of what the characters go through, I really wouldn't want to be in their shoes. Hmm.. I'll go with the Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout!

IdentitySeeker said...

Hermione in Harry Potter:) Or maybe even Ginny Weasely *wink*. Hey! I wouldn't even mind being Harry, lol, as long as I got to attend Hogwarts.
