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?

If it's not a million degrees like it has been lately, I would read on my porch. If it IS a solar inferno, then I will read on my couch inside.

Congrats on your daughter's wedding!

In the summer, it depends. If the heat is stifling (like now) I curl up on the basement couch. If the heat is doable, I'm outside in my lawn chair in the shade.

Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

Good luck with the wedding!

Congratulations on your daughter's wedding!! My favorite place to read in the summer is by the water - whether that's at the beach or near a lake. I love to have the breeze and the sound of waves/water lapping. However, as hot as it's been down in NC this summer, I'm more than happy to sprawl on my couch instead!! Thanks for the giveaway!!
