On this week's Bookcase of the Week it is with great pleasure that I bring you Vanessa of Today's Adventure's bookcase. I've been following Vanessa for a long time now and I love her reading tastes (which are very similar to mine *wink*). I asked her to participate in the Bookcase of the Week feature and here's what she had to say:
Hey everyone! My name is Vanessa (though I blog and comment with the handle NotNessie). I'm turning 30 later this year, I'm married to a fantastic guy, and I'm the stay-at-home mom of three kids I am ridiculously smitten with. When I have down time, one of my favorite things to do is read. I started my book blog, Today's Adventure, almost two years ago as an outlet to gush about the books I love because my friends were getting tired of tuning me out. I read a wide variety, but my favorite genres these days are urban fantasy and dystopian lit, especially YA. I would love for any of you to stop by for a visit and chat, or to enter my current giveaway.
Nely has asked me to share with you a bit about my bookshelf, which is a little tricky, because I don't actually have one. My daughter used my last shelf for climbing practice and it didn't survive. But I will show you where my books live.
I do a lot of reading in bed, so I keep my immediate to-read pile on my bedside table. I try to read books in the order I get them, but I'm a total mood reader, so I keep a variety on hand.
This is where the bulk of my books are stored. This is also where my shoes are stored. This is wrong, I know. The one good thing about having such a limited storage space for books is that I have to be very picky about what I keep. I only keep what I love so much I know I will reread it or lend it out to friends. My husband is a lot happier this way, and the books and shoes have struck up a strange but fulfilling friendship.
This is my second-favorite reading spot. I am one of those people who is incapable of sitting properly (sorry, Grandma!) and so a wide, comfy couch is perfect for all kinds of sprawls. Add some good lighting and a table for my cup of tea, and it's got everything I need.
That's all, folks! Thanks for sticking with me for the tour. And thank you very much for having me, Nely!
Vanessa, thank you so much for playing along. I loved the glimpse into your home and I especially loved hearing and seeing that your books and shoes get along so nicely. :) Although your book shelf space is limited, I see that you are making the most of it. I should do the same, since my books/cases have taken over most of my bedroom. C'est la vie.
For those of you who haven't passed on through to Vanessa's yet, please visit her here (tell her I say HI!)
