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 love amazon (prob too much according to my cc statement) , not much into ebooks, I love a real book way more (last ebook I got I couldn't even read it cus the font size was so tiny, even though all the rest of my ebooks are reg size!!)

I love the pens, notebooks, magnets and cups. I'm not crazy about the bookmarks, they keep sliding off my kindle. lol I'd like stickers or something else, that I could put on my Kindle cover to show off my favorite authors and jazz the cover up a little bit.
