This week my guest blogger is Jaime of Confessions of a Bibliophile. This Virginian's blog is bright, uncluttered and clean-- just like a magazine. (Heavens. See what happens when I go for a rhyme? I apologize!) I had to smile the first time I read Jaime's explanation of, not only how to spell her name, but the fact that she was a female. Fortunately I've never had the gender issue with my name, but I certainly understand the spelling part!
Jaime openly admits that she's obsessed with books. From a preference for mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction and literary fiction (which strongly resembles my own favorite genres), Jaime's been branching out into Chick Lit and Young Adult novels. Hmm... I've branched out into YA myself.... I really enjoy Confessions of a Bibliophile. If you're not already a fan, why don't you stop by Jaime's blog and say hi? Chances are you'll be adding her to your blog reader of choice!
Okie dokie. Time for me to stop hogging the spotlight and let Jaime show you where she does her blogging. (Click on the photos to view them full size.) Take it way, Jaime!
This is where I actually do most of my blogging (and knitting. and living.). The stack of books there have been waiting patiently for over a week to be cataloged and put away. I also do some blogging at work, but that would make a much less interesting picture!
This is what I see when I'm sitting in my space! Don't ask what I'm watching, I have no idea. These are just three of my 8 bookshelves, and hold primarily TBR books. Oh, and one of my cats decided to be in the photo. I don't have kids, so I have cat toys strewn about my living room.
See how woefully behind I am in my review book reading? And even more paperbacks I haven't read yet!Books, knitting, books, television, books, comfy chair, books, laptop, books, good lighting, books, cat, books... looks like the perfect set-up to me! In my opinion there's nothing woeful about a large TBR stack (or stacks). That makes me smile. What would be woeful would be the lack of a healthy TBR. I can get the shakes just thinking about having nothing in the house to read.
I would imagine that your pets keep a pretty close eye on you while you're knitting, reading or blogging, and that they know precisely when to stage An Intervention so you don't strain your eyes. Ah yes. I used to have pets!
Thanks so much for showing us your creative space, Jaime. All of us who crave having our Inner Peeping Toms fed each Wednesday certainly thank you!
Who'll be showing off a blogging space next Wednesday? Stop by Scene of the Blog here at Kittling: Books to find out!
