This Californian likes reading Young Adult and Adult fiction, especially the Dystopian, Contemporary, Paranormal and Historical subgenres. Lucy's family is full of readers, and it's not unusual for her to share some of her books with her daughter (who's been known to share her opinions of a book in a review or two).
I hope you take the opportunity to visit Lucy at The Reading Date. Don't forget to say hello while you're there! And if you're here visiting from Lucy's blog-- Welcome! I hope you enjoy seeing Lucy's creative spaces as much as the rest of us!
I know Lucy's ready to give us a tour, so let's get started!
|Lucy's "blogging central"|
I do my blogging from a desktop computer in the "office" room of our house. My daughter inherited my laptop so I'm making due with blogging from our desktop computer and occasionally my phone. Sitting in my comfy office chair I have my review notebook close at hand and a stack of current books to review. I also keep shipping supplies and a postal scale nearby to ship giveaways and such. This area is usually cluttered but I seem to work around it OK.
|Can you see Lucy's swag board?|

|Bookcase in her daughter's room|
We have small bookshelves scattered around the house, and this is one of the bookshelves in my daughter Sam's room. She and I both share a love of young adult books and the name of my book blog was actually inspired by the "reading dates" we have together. My husband is a big reader as well, and his favorite genres are thrillers and non-fiction.
|Bookcase in the living room|
Here is another bookshelf in the living room. I don't keep a lot of books around though; I read on my Kindle and Nook mostly. Many times after I read books I’ll give them away or donate them to Sam's school since I don't have a lot of space to keep them around.
|Meet Dylan and Tom|
These are my parakeets Tom (white) & Dylan (yellow) who keep me entertained with their singing and chatter.
Lucy, my space is normally a bit cluttered, and I work here just fine. (I have a sneaking suspicion that many other regular readers of this feature are nodding their heads!) I love how you chose the name for your blog, too!
By the time December rolls around, I'll have to have the windows shut, and I won't be able to hear the birds singing outside. It's wonderful that you have Tom and Dylan to entertain you!
Thank you so much for sharing your creative spaces with us. We really appreciate your letting us take a peek!
Don't forget to stop by next Wednesday when I'll be featuring another book blogger from our worldwide community.
