Trying Something Different

I've decided to try something just a bit different. Nothing huge! No explosions. No fancy background, no weird graphics or funny noises. Just something...different.

What might that be? Well, here it is in a nutshell. I have dedicated this blog to introducing you to new authors (Delilah for one) and to review books that I've read. Here's the really pathetic part; I don't review 99% of the books I read. Honestly, I don't really have a good reason why, other than to say that I read WAY too much and I think sometimes I get overwhelmed trying to articulate why I love or hate a book.

So, here's what I'm planning on doing. I will review as always, but I would also like to do a couple of things to showcase just how much I love books. Over the next few weeks, I will be talking about my ULTIMATE books. Books that I will treasure until the day I die. Books that touched me in a way that is hard to explain. Some of those books I've already reviewed here and others I've yet to talk about.

Each post that deals with these books will be an opportunity for you to comment and get a chance to read the book I'm discussing. If you've read the book, I would love to hear your comments as well.

I believe it is essential that a person who loves to read share their love of that hobby. For me, reading isn't just a hobby, it's a passion. As the new year looms (less than 3 months, people) and the election grows closer (Ack!) it is imperative that we exercise our freedom to pursue happiness. It's in the Constitution, you know. :)

Any thoughts? Would anybody be interested in doing something like a Round Robin discussion? If more than one of us has read a book, maybe we should look into each reviewing the same book and discussing on each of our blogs why we loved/hated that particular book? Just a thought. Can't hurt to try something different.

And now, I'm off to plot and figure out just which books I'm going to discuss. Should be interesting. :~D
