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?

Google Reader- Yea or Nay!
Like many others out there, I use Google Reader to help me navigate the way too many blogs I follow. I've increased by almost double what I can read daily. And yes I spend sooo much time reading others blogs that it has cost me precious reading time. This I hate but don't seem to be able to cut back. And I'm always finding new blogs that I MUST read. Reviews that are about books I'm reading or planning on reading, I flag and read after I've finished the book. If I've already read it or on the fence, then I do read the reviews. But it sure makes it much easier to bypass the many memes out there. But one thing I've noticed is that unless I'm compelled to leave a comment, I don't actually visit the blog. This got me to thinking, if I'm reading the review on Google Reader then the blogger doesn't know I've seen it as it won't show as a hit. Humm, not sure if while the GR is great for the reader, it's not so great for the blogger.
