The first time I saw the name of Jennifer's blog, Reading With Tequila, I laughed, and I immediately clicked on that link. A few minutes later, I was a subscriber, and I haven't looked back since.
Jennifer is my kind of reader-- an eclectic one-- and I really appreciate the variety of posts I can find on her blog. I also love her book rating scale. If you've never visited Reading With Tequila, please take the time to do so-- and don't forget to say hello!
Now it's time for Jennifer to take us on a tour of her blogging space, so the last thing I'll do is to remind you that, to view a photo full size, all you have to do is click on it. Take it away, Jennifer!
This is where all of the blogging happens. Obviously this is where I write reviews and blog posts – those pink post-its are notes for reviews that should have been written already. This is also where I do a bulk of my in home reading. I have a comfy bed, an almost comfy couch and yet, I’ll spend hours reading right at this desk. Part of it is habit but the larger part is because to the left is the doorway and it makes it easier to hear if my two youngest children are playing instead of sleeping. Oh, and yes, I often drink two different beverages at the same time.
This is my active bookshelf, for lack of a better term. The bottom shelf has my immediate TBR. The middle shelf contains books to be reread, challenge books and audio books. The top shelf has review books and books that are on their way out (library books soon to be due, giveaway books, etc.) Up on top are more books to be reread.
These are 3 of my 4 TBR bookshelves. I donated over 200 books to the library earlier in the year just to be able to fit all remaining books neatly on the shelves. All the books stacked on other books show that the plan wasn’t all that successful. As soon as there was more room, more books found their way into my home. As failures go, I’m okay with it.
That's the sort of failure I can live with, too, Jennifer. I'm almost tempted to ask you the name of the manufacturer of your bookcases because they look identical to mine. (I have 27 bookcases in our house, but they don't all match!)
If you have to keep your eyes and ears open for little ones, I can see why you spend so much time at your desk. I still remember plenty of times I was playing or reading when I was supposed to be sleeping. Of course, if I were to be honest, I'd have to admit that I never did learn my lesson. I do the same things to this day!
As a last comment... why is it that every time I see photographs of filled bookcases, I want to teleport myself into the picture so I can start looking and touching all the books???
Thank you so much for allowing us this glimpse inside your home, Jennifer. It's good to see where the magic of Reading With Tequila happens!
