What's On Your Desk Wednesday?

Kristen of BookNAround tagged me for this meme, so I'll give it a go. I should probably mention that I run this blog on Hawaii time, in honor of my awesome vacation there last year, so I consider today to still be Wednesday.

What's on your desk Wednesday? is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Sassy Brit of Check her blog out each Wednesday for the post titled What's on your desk Wednesday?

You can do one of two things or both!

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!
Come back here and leave a link back to your photo in comments.


List at least 5 BOOKISH things on your desk (I'm thinking your TBR pile or books you haven't shelved...)
List at least 5 NON BOOK things. (I'm thinking some of some of the more unusual items on your desk/table?)
Tag at least 5 people to do the same.
Come back here and leave your link, so we can come and visit your blog. Or add your answers in the comments if you don't have a blog.

Like Kristen, I am temporarily camera-less, since I loaned my only memory card to my kid's school and haven't seen it since. But my trusty macbook has a tiny camera, and it peeped at my bedside table before fleeing in fear of the tumbling book piles. On the left you see my current reads, all bazillion of them, with Gaiman's American God's on top. Behind that is the other pile of my current reads. I'm indecisive, OK? And I have a very short attention span.

Teetering to the right is the review pile, many of them due back at the library tomorrow so I'd better get cracking. And behind THAT is my TBR real-soon-now pile, which is supposed to be only books that I've recently bought and I'm not supposed to buy any more until that pile could pass a safety inspection. Hmm. And peeking dimly out behind them all is my bedside lamp. I should read more so I get better light. And finally, you see some forgotten change between some of the mountains of books. I have no idea why that is there.

I'm too shy to tag people; maybe after I start commenting more.

Thanks for playing along, I'm so glad you did. You're a newish blogger, and new to me, so it's nice to meet you. I hope you are enjoying your time blogging!

Had to laugh at your "teetering to the right" it's a mess, but that's what I love to see. A happy, look-at-all-those-lovely-books-to-read mess!

I'll be adding your pic to my WOYDW Flickr page shortly - and it will appear on my website at random intervals with the others!

Thank you, again! Now, when are you getting your safety inspection? :)

My bedside table generally has teetering stacks too. I knocked one over the other day and took a good ten minutes fishing everything out from between it and the wall. Of course, not having learned, I promptly stacked them right back up in exactly the same order. Now it's turned into an experiment to see how long it will take gravity to affect it this time. :-)

yeah Hawaii time!

My read pile goes in fits and starts, but is nowhere near yours. Mostly it has the historical novels from A in it now.
