Welcome!

Well…here it goes, my very first blog.  I will admit there is still much work to be done before this blog looks and feels exactly like I want it to.  I  need to add a bunch more links to my blogroll (cleverly titled “wise guys” to fit it with with my “bookie theme”), and I am still learning the ropes of blogging and I am having some formating issues so bear with me.  That being said, I just couldn’t wait to start blogging.  Now, on to the important stuff…BOOKS. 

Today I could wait no longer for my book club selection The Thirteenth Tale to come in at the library so I headed out to Barnes and Nobles and purchased it.   I managed to remain restrained and did not purchase anything else although I was very tempted by Rise and Shine by Anna Quindlin, The Sea by John banville, and Challenger Park by Stephen Harrigan as well as about 5000 others of course!  I am excited about The Thirteenth Tale since it is getting more buzz than Jeff Spicolli  did in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and from what I’m reading in the book blog world it seems to living up to its hype.  By the way the book club I’m in is an online bookclub called The Written Word.  I’ve only just joined, but its a fun and friendly place to visit.   Their last selection was The Secret Girl which I’ve decided to scratch off my TBR list due to the discussion.  Anyway, please be gentle with me as I embark on my blogging adventures and feel free to send any advice or constuctive criticism my way!
