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?

Six Year Blogaversary Contests Day FOUR at BITTENBYBOOKS!

Hi everybody!
Welcome to day FOUR of the blogaversary contests. Before you get started I want to tell you a story about somebody very special in my life. He’s my 10 year old miniature dapple blue dachshund named Mochie (mow-kee). The reason the post is up so late today is because my beloved friend and furbaby is sick and had to be rushed to the vet this morning. They think he may have cancer. My dogs (and wehave five) are all a BIG part of the Bitten by Books family.  Mochie has helped out at a lot over the years at BBB. He’s barked faithfully at every delivery of books that have arrived for our reviewers, peed on a few boxes, sent small dog hairs to the reviewers in their boxes of books, kept watch over me while I worked countless hours doing what I love the most, helping authors and readers connect.
I can’t imagine a world without my fur kid in it. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes here at our site, and Mochie and the four footed gang are a part of it that maybe you didn’t know about.  I am dedicating  today’s post to Mochie. I hope that whatever you are doing you will take a moment to send him positive thoughts and energy to get better and NOT have cancer or anything else. He’s staying overnight at the vet tonight and then tomorrow we have to take him to an internal medicine specialist who will do an ultra-sound to check for cancer. This post is for you mister man.
