Happy Friday my Friends!!
I’m insanely excited to host our first Blogger for “My Reading Spot” : Jenny from Supernatural Snark. I believe many of you know this awesome chick already. She runs this awesome Book Blog and writes the most amazing, best written and most fantastic reviews ever! I’m not kidding here! Last year, when I was preparing for my first BEA experience I heard that Jenny will be there too. So, I just contacted her and asked her if she wants to meet up. Best.Decision.Ever. It was an instant love affair between us. Yes – true story! Getting to the point now – I’m excited to have Jenny today on the Blog to share her Reading Spot and a few Reading habits with us! *whispers* did I say already that I love that girl?
Jenny from Supernatural Snark:
First of all, I want to thank Danny, Pushy and the other Bookworms for hosting me today and giving me the opportunity to share a few little snippets of my life with you. As you’ll see in the pictures, that life pretty much consists of reading, working, and dogs. Oh, and my husband is mixed in there as well, though sometimes he plays second fiddle to my book boyfriends *dreamy sigh*. That’s okay though, because I play second fiddle to a variety of 12 year-olds. You’ll see what I mean if you keep reading:-)
FIRST FAVORITE READING SPOT: THE LIVING ROOM
This is my living room, a space that pretty much belongs to our oldest boxer Gatsby. I often meet with clients in this room since I work from home (I’m a wedding stationer and graphic designer, you can see some of my work on the wall), so in an effort to keep the couch as pristine as possible when the dogs sprawl on it, I have to cover it with easy-to-wash blankets. Not the most attractive look, but necessary. I read in here every so often because this space is at the front of the house and gets tons of light, plus my office is right next to it and I like to take an occasional break from work and snuggle with Gatsby. It bears mentioning however that Gatsby absolutely does not want to be snuggled, and when I sit on the couch with him he often gets up and goes into the family room. It’s starting to give me a complex. Seriously.
SECOND FAVORITE READING SPOT: THE OFFICE
Above is my home office which has taken over the dining room. Who needs a dining room really? Not this girl. Some days the creative juices just aren’t flowing, so when this happens I usually grab a book or my Kindle, put my feet up on the desk, and read until a design idea pops into my head. On busier days, usually in the summer months when wedding season is in full swing, only work gets done at this desk (I swear!) but on slower days it’s a fun place to read.
THIRD FAVORITE READING SPOT: THE FAMILY ROOM
This is my family room, the place where majority of my reading takes place. Our youngest boxer Griffin is currently sitting in my spot like he owns it, but little does he know he’s about to get moved so I can sit there myself. As I mentioned before, I often come second to 12 year-olds when it comes to my husband’s attention. Why 12 year-olds you ask? Well, because my husband is slightly *cough* HUGELY *cough* obsessed with Black Ops on PlayStation. The above pictures pretty much depict how our evenings and weekends are spent: Hubs swears at children when they knife, concuss, or shoot him from a helicopter, and I sit where Griffin is and devour book after book. After book. His obsession with video games rivals my obsession with books, so we’re a match made in obsessive heaven really 🙂
I can’t wait to see where everyone else’s reading and blogging take place, and thanks so much again to the Bookworms for letting me be a part of this feature!
Oh Jenny! Thank you so much for this wonderful insight into your reading live. How cute are your doggies!!? I love your home it looks cozy and wonderful – but of course I’m most amazed by your Office. This big shiny awesome thingy with this apple there is something that directly caught my eye. Oh and we don’t have a dining room ourselves… we moved it upstairs where.. we actually don’t really need it .. But I can imagine it’s sometimes hard to work from home with all those distracting couches so I’m amazed by your discipline! So happy to hear your hubs has his own obsession – avid readers like us needs husbands that are not jealous when Barrons or Ash or Daemon comes along and distracts us..
Happy Friday and much love,
