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?

Jane Yellowrock – Dark Heir $50.00 Gift Amazon Card Trivia Contest from BittenByBooks

Excerpt from Dark Heir:
“Yeah.” It wasn’t enough. I didn’t know enough. As usual. “We need to ask someone what happened that night. And try to get a straight answer.”
“Good luck with that. Adrianna, Joseph, and Leo are the only ones still alive to question,” Eli said, amused. “One has scrambled brains, one is drinking people to death, and the other has never been overly forthcoming with the truth.”I thought about the brass knuckles and beating the truth from Leo. Reluctantly, I said, “There’s Bethany.”                                “Ditto on the looney tunes,” Eli said.        “I wonder where Leo got the painting of Adrianna and Barbie? It was with stuff that came from his clan home when it burned, but I never saw it until it was on sub-four. Bruiser said Leo was searching for things pertaining to Santana, so I have to wonder how many other things and bits of evidence there are.”
“Diaries?” Eli asked. “Dear Diary, Today I intend to stake the Son of Darkness. Then a sleepover with my bestie, Adrianna.”
“Okay. Ha-ha. But what about newspapers? Gossip columns were big in the day.”
Eli’s mouth turned down and he nodded as he considered that. “Alex can check through archived newspapers. I’ll look on sub-four and search the room Adrianna used at HQ.” He frowned. “It’s on sub-four too.”
“Nothing vamps do is coincidence. I’ll talk to Leo.” With or without brass knucks and the use of physical violence. “He was here. I need to know more about what he saw.” I started out of the room.
Eli looked at the damaged bedpost. “Sometime soon, we need to get in some more sword practice. We may need it.”
“Until further notice, we carry multiple silver crosses and silver ammo.”
“I’ll get some holy water from a priest I know,” Eli said, “because I doubt we’ll be welcomed back to The Church any time soon.”
