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?

Carley L. said...

I think I'd most like A Breath of Eyre or The Immortal Rules. The description for A Breath of Eyre reminds me a bit of the TV miniseries Lost in Austen, which I absolutely loved. I've been hearing so many great things about The Immortal Rules and I love anything with vampires, so I think that could be great too.

Carley L. said...

Oops, I accidentally forgot my email in my last comment.

carleylaakso[at]gmail[dot]com

I'd most like to read Lost in Eyre or The Immortal Rules. The description of Lost in Eyre reminds me of the TV miniseries Lost in Austen, which I absolutely loved. I have been hearing some really wonderful things about The Immortal rules and also love almost anything with a vampire in it, so I think it would be an awesome read (I hope that was similar to my original post).

Grave Mercy. IT looks incredible and sounds fantastic. It's on my to-read list but I'm trying to cut down on my book buying. I worked out I spent more on books last month than I did rent or food...

And I didn't go hungry either so I suppose that's saying something :P
