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?

FIRST CONTEST--100 Followers & Birthday Giveaway- ENDS 7/19

Wow, cannot believe that almost 6 months have passed since I officially started blogging. While only a little bit more HTML savvy (still have the Blogging for Dummies book unopened on my desk), I don't curse and pull my hair out quite as often. My biggest challenge is getting my reviews written in a timely fashion as for some reason I seem to be bogged down reading other blogs. I simply have to limit myself but hey reading your blogs is what got me started and I love to find yet more new ones to read. I must be more disciplined! I could read an extra book every other day if I could just step away from the computer. So anyway, I just want to thank all of you who have stopped by, looked, commented, and followed.  Following will be the only requirement. I will chose using to choose YOU! I have a big (no I'm not saying which) birthday coming in mid July . I'll have at least three winners--1 to celebrate my 1/2 year blogaversity, 1 to celebrate my birthday, and 1 to thank my 100 followers. Should I get a bunch of new followers, I'll add an extra book and winner for each 25. Ends on 7/19-

I'll have a choice of books and let you decide which one you want. First winner gets their choice, second gets theirs and so on. At this time it is USA only as I only have two internationals but I will have another at the end of summer to celebrate the arrival of Fall. I will probably offer a gift card if the winner is an international as I hate to pay more for the shipping then the book cost. So keep your eyes open as this should be posted by the end of the week. 

Here are a few of the books that I've chosen to offer in the giveaway. There will be more as the week goes on. Hopefully, you will find one that you would enjoy. Anyone have any suggestions for one you'd like to have? Leave me a note and I'll see what I can do.

There is so much to like on your blog. I will have to spend more time here. I'm especially interested in the Painted Caves by Auel. Never read one of her books.
