Scene of the Blog Featuring Kara of World According to Books!

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!


  1. I enjoyed this look into Kara's blogging space and her bookcases. I'm like you, I love to see other's books, see what they are reading.

  2. I love how compact and cozy this space is! Everything within arm's reach.

  3. Cool new button :D

    Oh in awe of those shelves

  4. Hi everybody!!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my space. Sorry I'm a little late...had a small snow emergency this morning...but all is okay now.

    Sharon...I like to look at people's bookshelves too!!

    Molly...thanks, I don't have a lot of room in my house but I managed to carve a small space for me!! LOL shelves are a work in progress. The big shelves are currently being converted from junk shelves to bookshelves. While I'm converting them, I am also cataloging my books too.

  5. Oooh! I could be weird, but I've always thought cataloging is fun!

  6. Looks like a really comfy space! Love the bookshelves too. It sounds like we are in the same boat, only I still don't have my shelves so most books are in boxes or on top of the boxes or just on the floor.

  7. Hi Kara!!

    I love your little space, it looks comfy and perfect! :) This was a very neat post, congrats on being featured!!

  8. I had to enlarge the bookshelf photo too! I just can't get enough of the books.

  9. Yes, we love shelves! But I wonder how anyone can have empty space left?

  10. Thank you so much everyone for stopping by and checking out my space!! And thanks to you, Cathy, for featuring me on Scene of the Blog!!

    I must be weird too...I think cataloging is fun too...I love to go through my books especially my TBR books.

  11. I love your space -- separate yet not!
