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 next major prize for today is from the incredibly talented illustrator and author Lisa Falkenstern who you all got to meet last week on the blog. As some of you may have read, she used to do all of the artwork for V.C. Andrews’ books. Lisa has contributed her ORIGINAL art for the re-issue of Flowers in the Attic in 2000, it’s done in oils, and you are getting the art, not the copyright.  This is an actual painting on wood that is pictured here. Also, part of the prize package from her includes four signed copies of the following V.C. Andrews books: Melody, Pearl in the Mist, Tarnished Gold, Heart of Song they are signed by Lisa who did the cover art (not V.C. Andrews).
