I feel a distinct sense of panic if I don't have a book with me at all times. Or if the stack on the floor starts to get too low.
When I discovered her blog, I also discovered that we share some reading DNA, so I'm always checking out her book reviews. She also has lots of giveaways which I haven't joined because I have a book stash problem that won't quit. She certainly knows how to tempt a person, though!
Today is Luanne's first blogiversary, so please make sure to congratulate her on her excellent blog! It's time for me to cut to the chase so you can all take a look at Luanne's blogging space. I've been drooling over the photos since she sent them to me, and I'm sure you will, too! (Click on the photos to view them full size.)
I was a bookstore manager for many years and finally got burned out by retail, so I switched hats and went into public service instead. I now work for a public library system and love my little branch. My blog was born out of the question " Can you tell me the name of a good book?". I really enjoy doing reader's advisory - matching someone up with an author I think they'll enjoy or exposing them to something completely different. Someone said why don't you write them down somehwere and tada A Bookworm's World was born. It will be a year on March 18th! What an amazing community the book blogging world is! My only issue with being immersed in books day and night is that I see way too many titles I want to read. Add to that all the blogs I follow and well....I will never run out of things to read.
My book piles began to take over the house a couple of years ago. Piles under and on every possible surface. So my DH suggested making what was an old front parlour (we live in a farmhouse) into a library. Ummm- YES! So one whole wall is bookshelves. As the ceilings are 10 ft, there is an extra shelf and library lighting on top (love it at night!) If I'm home in the day, I like to lay on the couch and read, as there is great lighting from a big picture window. I made the quilt on the couch and the stained glass hanging in the window - both hobbies that I try to balance with my love of reading. Yes that is a garden gnome hiding behind the couch! ( And looking at the picture - I realize I really need to get some pictures hung up!)
See? I told you that you'd drool when you saw these photos! Luanne has such a cozy, comfortable place to read and blog--it's great! Thanks so much for allowing us into your home. It was a treat!The chairs are another place to camp out. The books on the bookstool are my TBR pile and the pile on the floor spines out are books I have signed out from the library. Although there is a computer desk in another room in the house, it`s a bit more utilitarian (and not worth a picture) and I much prefer to work out of the library. It`s just a cozier place.
