What's On Your Desk Wednesday

I already saw this post popping up everywhere (I think Erotic Horizon was my first) but when I went over to Cecile's place; All I want And More, and found another What's On Your Desk Wednesday MEME I knew it was time to flash you my desktop and TRP. For me working on such a post takes time since I want a nice header for the post, rummaging through photo's which ones will do, taking some more photo's of my desk and such so finally, here I am with my post of: What's On Your Desk Wednesday.


"What's On Your Desk Wednesday is a weekly book blog meme hosted by Sassy Brit of Alernative-Read.com Here are the rules, and they are pretty straight-forward.You can do one of two things or both.

1. Grab a camera and take a photo of your desk. Or anywhere you stack your books/TBR pile. And no tidying! Add this photo to your blog.Tag at least 5 people.

2. List at least 5 BOOKISH things on your desk (Examples are TBR pile or books you haven't shelved...) List at least 5 NON BOOK things. (Like some of the more unusual items on your desk/table?)

Tag at least 5 people to do the same.Once you're done, go to Sassy's blog and post your link. That way people can visit your blog and see the pictures you have posted."

5 Book things on my desk:

* You all see that thick red book on the left? That is my Synonym Finder by J.I. Rodale. When I write reviews I sometimes have it that a word is just not exactly what I want to convey or if I become very repetitve I often use this book to guide me. That is why I have a rough draft of my review and then I take a look at the text for a grammar mistakes and such.

* Chaos is my middle name so I have bought myself a plastic basket thingy that holds a signed cover of Kiss Of A Demon King, you don't see it but it is there.

* I also received a computer cloth from Brenda Joyce but I use it for my glasses instead of my pc screen. With ROOB we are listed as a reader's group so we receive promo items from time to time and I luuuurve Brenda Joyce's pc cloths LOL

* I have utter delicious Highlander cards from Karen Moning, also stacked in the plastic basket thingy. Once in a while I stumble across them and sigh pure female bliss. Nathan Kemp is so hubba hubba.

* And last but not least, I also have a mousepad with a cover CL Wilson printed on it in there, I love her covers created by Judy York but my mouse didn't move well so it got moved into my basket.

PS, I don't have TRP on my desk *frowns* Whenever books arrive they go on to my shelves immediately and that is where I have my pile of book I want to read ASAP.

5 Non Book Things on my desk:

*A can filled with old fashioned dutch peppermints. For some reason when I go do things with photoshop/blog or write review I have this oral fixation I can't get rid of. So I pop a peppermint every once in a while.

* Season 1 & 2 of The Tudors has been gracing my desk since I think the early day's of June. To my utter shame it is still wrapped in the foil *eek*

* I have a glass filled with pens. I always seem to lose pens everywhere so when I need one I search the whole appartment for one. Now I have a standard place on my desk where I can find them at all times :D

* My scanner, something I can't do without when working with photoshop also resides on my desk.

* And my microphone. My brother, sister and I have ventrilio, a program which allows us to talk via internet to each other. Comes in handy when I freak out about all thing related to pc that goes wrong or when we play a game called World Of Warcraft.


I'll just flash you my shelves, I think about 50% is still unread *eek*`

This is my bookcases in my living room, the top shelf contains many Dutch releases which are my true keepers on my shelves, the rest is all books in the english language.

This is my bookcase in my hall. The top four shelves are Dutch releases, books which I wanted to keep but I had to make room for my "other" incomming books so they brighten up my hall. The rest is all english which I bought in bulk orders at Ebay. Someday I will read them, just not in the immediate future ;D

Extra: The view through my window, left of my desk:

  1. Your desk is so neat and tidy! And that TBR stack! WOW!

    I can't take any pictures of my desk, it's embarassingly messy!

  2. wow,that's alot of books.I wish my desk was as neat as yours.Mines a mess I can't find anything on it.

  3. The chaos side in me would have a mess too but my desk is in my living room and I'd like to keep that space as tidy as possible.

    And my TRP is an entity all on its own, its grows all by itself now LOL

  4. *Droooools over books*
    Wow, that is a great collection! No wonder my boyfriend thinks that i with this speed will need a lot of shelves later on.

    Would need a cloth for my PC too, would be handy.

    Nice desk, and amazing view

  5. Damn! Not only is your desk area clean and tidy (*Shoves piles of papers out of the way to continue typing*), but I'm also in love with your bookshelves. Not really because of the number of books (though you've got a lot, and I can appreciate that of course!) but because they are so neatly stacked and in one place.

    Mine? Not so much! I wish I had shelves in my house to neatly stack all my books on like that, but I don't have the money or room, so instead I have four smaller shelves scattered around my room, each one stuffed to the top with books. I hate having them 'stuffed' in like I do, but I can't help it-- there's no other way to have enough room to put them!

    One day they'll have enough room to breath though.. and maybe even be organized into series (a few of them are.. until the series keeps growing but my shelf stays the same size, then they get broke up!).

    Great post though-- I enjoyed it! And of course I drooled over the pictures of the books! Hey-- and the view out your window isn't bad at all either! :) I wouldn't mind that!


  6. I LOVE your pics!!! Awesome! I'm in lurve with all your books!

  7. I'm tripping over myself at your organizational skills. Can you come to California to do mine?! I need serious help in that department.

    I'm drooling too over all your beautiful books. Your shelves are like a rainbow of color. Love it!

    And your view! Gorgeous!!

    Thanks for sharing. I don't think I can ever post mine. A mad cleaning session is definitely in order!!

    (((hugs))) VFG

  8. Hi Blodeuedd - It's a very small pc cloth to keep your pc screen and keyboard clean. I have one by BJ from her Dark Embrace cover but I could send you my new one of her cover: Dark Lover. If you want it just e-mail me your address :D

    TBQ - Hey girl, yes I am happy with my bookshelves and the space for my books. I had very small ikea bookcases at first and the shelves started to bend in the middle due to the weight. My dad made me these bookcases for my b-day.

    Hey Mandi - Many books probably look familiar LOL I'm looking at them now and the thought I have to read so many *eek* I want to age slowly, very slowly, can you imagine reading Lora Leigh/JR Ward or S.J. Day at the age of 80? Us in a retirement home panting and gasping over some hawt scene :D

    Hi VFG - I have a very big wicked grin on my face right now, horns are growing out of my head as we speak for you do know that one day I'll make it across that big pond and i can actually drop by you all.

  9. Leotine, you sill girl. You never told me your bookshelf was 8 stories tall?! My measly collection is nothing compared to yours. I love you shelves, did you build them yourself?

  10. Leontine!!!! I love your pics too!! Your desk is so tidy and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE your bookshelves.....I'm so jealous, I'm still waiting for mine! Beautiful outside pics too!!! I hope that one of these days I'm going to do this meme and be able to show you great books pics!!! :)

  11. Wow, your shelves are gorgeous AND neatly organized! Sooo jealous! Love your view from your window too. Thanks for letting us peek into your space!

  12. I love this bookshelves. I had to call boyfriend and tell him "That's what I want!" and he just said:"We need a new apartment!"
    I think I would be happy with one of those sealing high ones. I still have a cartoon of books living under my desk(I would never leave these books out of my reach!LOL).

  13. I don't have a desk. I suppose the computer is on a desk, but I'm not on that one often. I'm usually in my chair with the laptop!

    I LOVE your bookcases!

  14. Okay... I am really jealous now!! Your bookcases are amazing... Dutch and all!!! Your collection is heavenly to say the least!!!
    I need to buy more books to catch up to you!!!
    I hope you had a great day today and have a wonderful day tomorrow!!!

  15. I am gasping at your neatness. Holy crow! I have books piling on my desk, I've got a stack next to my bed, books sticking out of my bookcase... It's not that I don't care about my babies, but they're growing up so fast! And then they make more babies, and then I adopt more babies...

    I've been meaning to get 1 or 2 new bookcases to accomodate some of my book addiction. I've already participated in What's On Your Desk a while back, and if I were to take a picture of my desk now, it would be very different. =/

  16. OMG!!! I LOVE what you have done to your shelves!! You just rocked my bookshelf world!

  17. Everything is so orderly and neat! *fingers twitching to rearrange out of order* LOL! Just kidding! I'm amazed actually. I've seen several posts on other blogger's bookshelves and desks, so I know I shall never post mine. People would go insane with un-categorized and unorganized shelves. ;)

  18. Wow - I just love your bookcases!!! I want some that go from floor to ceiling and across the entire wall - you lucky girl!!! I'm so jealous of all those books. You're a woman after my own heart ;)
