First things first. To start off the second year of Scene of the Blog, I'm breaking out the second of the snazzy buttons made especially for this feature by Sheri of A Novel Menagerie. Thanks, Sheri!
And now to get to my featured blogger! When I see a koala, I think of Kara of World According to Books. If that doesn't make any sense to you, you haven't visited this blog, so I hope you stop by sometime soon (like today) to say hi.
The thing I like the most about Kara is the enthusiasm she shows towards her favorite books: romance and vampires. I do remember reading something about John Sandford's mysteries, so like most of us, Kara reads a bit of everything.
Let's see where Kara does most of her blogging, shall we? (Don't forget that you can click on each photo to view it full size.)
My blogging space isn't very fancy. It consists of my recliner, lamp, and side table sitting in the corner of my living room. I like blogging here because I am in the middle of all the hubbub of my family, can keep an eye on my kids, and watch a little TV. On my table are the books that I want to read, my notepads where I write down all the wonderful books that are recommended by my blogging friends and notes on the books that I am currently reading. And, of course, my cup of cappuccino. Underneath the table is where I keep all our library books. On the wall are my kids' schedules for school and a few drawings that they made me. In the cabinet are more books, my favorite movies, and a some of my "techie" items like my eBookwise reader, cords to all our MP3 players, etc.
This is my corner of the world in our house, and I treasure the time I get to spend there reading, blogging, and reading with my kids. Thanks for stopping by and visiting!
Kara knows us very well because she also sent these photos of some of her bookshelves. How great is that? I can never resist looking at someone else's books, and I see some familiar authors on Kara's shelves... like Nora Roberts.
Thanks so much for helping me kick off the second year of Scene of the Blog, Kara! We appreciate the glimpse into your creative space.
Whose creative space will be featured next Wednesday? Please stop by to take a look. See you then!
