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?

Review For NAKED IN DEATH (In Death Series)(audio) ... J. D. Robb-5*

Title: Naked In Death
Series: In Death #1
Author: J D Robb
Genre: Murder/Suspense
Rating: * * * * *
Publishers: Berkley
(July 1, 1995)
Paperback: 320 pages
FTC Disclosure: my copy

In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line--between seductive passion and scandalous murder... Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she's seen it all--and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire--and a suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about--except the addictive hunger of needing his touch. 

I've read the full set of IN DEATH books/novellas and read the newest within days of release. As I have started traveling once a week to visit grandkids that are out of town, I decided to start listening to audio books. Murder mysteries are at the top of my list to listen too as they engage the mind while mindless driving alone for hours. I decided to listen to this series as it has been a top fav of mine and it has been twenty+ years since I started reading it. First mistake, I picked up the abridged edition of the first three novels in this series. Definitely stick with the unabridged as all the emotion, the subtleties, what makes it special, is not in the abridged edition. If I had listened to the abridged addition before I read the books, I'd have never picked them up and the loss of this awesome series would be forever lost to me. It was a fun trip, rediscovering how Roarke and Eve met and remeeting Mavis, Feeney and others who are so important to Eve and this series. This was a great start to the series and I can't wait to listen to the rest of it.
If you've been hesitate to start this series because of the length and depth of it and you like a good romantic murder mystery, don't deprive yourself. I started out slow myself reading two or three of the books back to back and was amazed at how addictive it became. Now my name is first on the list at the library to read each new release (we get two books a year). There have been so many of these sold that you can pick them up at used book stories for pennies if you can't find them at the library.
