Scene of the Blog-- LisaMay of Look At That Book

This week, we're going all the way to Australia to visit LisaMay of Look At That Book. I enjoy LisaMay's blog for its clean, crisp design and a good blend of graphics and text. Of course, there is a problem with reading an Australian book blog: it's not always easy to get a copy of the book you've just discovered that you have to read! One thing that I've learned since I started blogging: there are some excellent not-to-be-missed books being written Down Under. If you haven't visited her blog, make it your first stop after reading this post!

Without further blathering on the part of the host, let's see where LisaMay creates all her blog posts! (Don't forget that the photo is clickable so you can view it full size.)

This is where I do my blogging, emailing and general writing! It's also where I keep all my books (and a lot of other clutter). My desk is usually piled so high with things that it becomes impossible to work on. All my mess just gravitates towards it! But I cleaned it all up nice for the photo shoot otherwise you wouldn't have been able to see the desk at all! (That's only a slight exaggeration.) I keep my TBR stack of books elsewhere so all the books in the bookshelf are just ones I own, though now I'm finding myself less and less inclined to keep books. I just like reading them and passing them on! I think I could be one of those people who live in those ultramodern minimalist shiny white houses... but then I'd have to fill it with colour. Just not cluttered colour... I'm rambling. Well yes, I stood some of the books up so they're on display. They're probably too small (or blurry!) to make out but you can try to guess what they are if you like! :)

Like LisaMay, I know all about the gravitational force field of a desk. Desk surfaces would be more like black holes because they suck everything towards them, but unlike black holes all the stuff does not disappear. Well...except that one form that needed to be filled out and mailed last week....

I know LisaMay's space has been tidied up for the photo shoot, but I like the layout. There's a big bookcase right next to the desk that holds a lot of essentials. (If you're someone who doesn't like to read and you just happened to stumble into this blog post, yes, books are essentials!) The desk is of a good size, so its gravitational field is plenty strong enough to suck all piles of paperwork onto it, and it looks as though there's a window right next to the desk. For many of us bloggers, a view is also an essential.

I do have to admit to being a Nosy Parker about the photos on the wall above the desk. Family members? Friends? I hope LisaMay puts me out of my misery!

Thank you so much for letting us take a look at your creative space, LisaMay. We really appreciate it!

Don't forget to stop by next Wednesday to take a look at the creative space of another book blogger. See you then!


  1. Nice looking space, and that sure looks like a comfy chair, and that is sure needed for blogging :)

  2. i love this idea--so clever! i understand the clutter situation--my desk was a bit disasterous but i just won a bookshelf on a blog contest and now can organize! yay. :)

    thanks for the 'trip'! i didn't even need my passport...and it's a lucky thing because it's expired. lol.

  3. Thanks for the peek! I love seeing where people blog. And better yet, I've just added a new blog to my reader!

  4. My space isn't that tidy even after I've cleaned it up. I'm going to check out LisaMay's blog now!

  5. for me the gravitational force is the coffee table in the living room since I have a laptop. LOL

    great post!

  6. I have to say I just discovered your Blog and I am loving your SCENE of the Blog section! Bravo!!

  7. You're funny about being nosy on the photos - I do always feel like I'm peeking inside someone's medicine cabinet when I stop by for this feature ;0)

  8. That was fun, seeing where another blogger does her thing. Fun also to discover her blog. I like her look plus what she has to say.

  9. Jennifer--I'm so glad you stopped by and are enjoying Scene of the Blog!

    The Bumbles--Now you've given me another catch phrase for this series. Jenners of Find Your Next Book Here has given me "satisfying our Inner Peeping Tom" and now you've given me "peeking into the medicine cabinet"! Thank you!
