Cathy, Thank you so much for inviting me to Scene of the Blog. I've seen some great bloggers featured here and always enjoy seeing fellow book lovers reading spaces.
I have a wide range of favorite authors; it all depends on the genre. Among my favorites are Stephen King, Philippa Gregory, Jane Austen, Alice Hoffman and Gabriel García Márquez. I enjoy poetry, especially the works of Pablo Neruda, Khalil Gibran and Emily Dickinson. I like reading books that have passionate prose and unforgettable characters. If a book makes me cry a little, I think that's a wonderful thing.
I started my book blog in 2007 and am very happy to be part of the book blogging community.
|The built-in bookshelves in Naida's computer room|
My computer room has built in bookshelves on one entire wall. Before I began book blogging and reviewing, these shelves were half empty but now they are jam packed with books. I mainly keep the books here that I have read already. I separate them by author and genre. Fellow book loving friends and family sometimes like to come and borrow books from my mini library.

Besides reading, crocheting is my other passion. I love to express myself through my crochet. Aside from books being in nooks and crannies in my home, you will also find crocheted stuffed toys, which are my favorite things to make.
|Just a bit of Mt. TBR|
This is a snippet of my Mt.TBR. This mountain of books grows by the week it seems.
I have a Chihuahua-shaped shadow; his name is Diego. He is never far when I'm relaxing with a good book. Diego is an attention hog and has been known to drop his toys onto my book if I'm laying down reading and not paying him any mind.
When the weather is nice, I love to read outdoors. Here he is waiting for me in a favorite chair.

I love to read outside within view of my garden.
|Another favorite reading spot|
Another favorite reading spot when the weather is nice, not too hot, is my kids' trampoline. Yes, I hide in there and read, it's very cozy and I've actually fallen asleep there while reading. Even though I hide and try to find peace and quiet, hubby, kids and Diego always find me.
I think many of us have that same problem of the ever-expanding Mt. TBR, Naida! Your built-in bookshelves make me drool, and I love your opinionated little reading buddy. When you have your trampoline reads, are you on top of it, or underneath? Just curious! I know it's something I couldn't do here in Arizona unless I were hiding underneath. On top, and I'd turn into a crispy critter within minutes!
Thank you so much for allowing us this glimpse into your home and your garden. We certainly appreciate it!
Don't forget to stop by next Wednesday, when I'll be featuring yet another book blogger in our worldwide community!
