What's On Your Desk Wednesday 6.17.09

What's on my desk?
A whole bunch of books that I've received this month!!
I counted and I've gotten 44 books so far =)

I've really received 46, but I lent 2 to a friend that I trust. I say "trust" because I'm so picky about my books that I don't lend them out to just anyone! Before I lend them out I look them in the eye and say, "Repeat after me, I will not bend the pages, I will not leave smudge marks on the pages, I will not crease the spine, I will not use it as a coaster (my mother actually used one of my books as a coaster! Does she not know me?!)". After they've repeated this I make them sign a waiver, haha J/K...sort of, LOL!

I know I'm neurotic, but it's ok, I've embraced it :)
Hello, my name is Vanessa and I'm a Bookaholic!

I just really love my books and like to take care of them. They're my little collection and they make me happy :)

Now...on to the books...voila!

*Sigh* I love reading

Tag! You're it!:


Check out this blog for the rules! Super simple and fun!


  1. Haha - I love all the books. I actually don't have a desk so I'm going to have to take a pic of my neurotic bookshelves. I'll try and have my post up tomorrow.

  2. LOL. First time I'm tagged ever. I'm saying thank you LOL
    I didn't have a camera but gave a good description. It should be posted soon.

    It was fun! Thanks for making my day.

  3. Mine is posted here: http://j-kaye-book-blog.blogspot.com/2009/06/i-got-tagged-whats-on-your-desk.html

  4. Yay! Glad you guys had fun! I know I did! LOL!

  5. Brilliant, very funny - I know what you mean, too. I am very reluctant to lend my books out after one horrifying experience. A book came back to me, with loose pages, bent cover and totally unrecognisable! I was mortified! I really have to trust a person to lend out my books to them. :)

    Thanks for joining in with my blog meme - it looks like you had fun. I certainly enjoyed reading all about it. Also, there is something magical about books - even on other people's bookshelves! Am I odd? Probably!

    Here is my WHAT’S ON YOUR DESK WEDNESDAY? For anyone who hasn't seen it...

    Take care, and have fun! Thanks again, Vanessa.

    Sassy Brit ☺

  6. That's not so big a pile. You can whip through that fairly fast, I'd think.

  7. Hi Vanessa -- Thanks for tagging me. We're a timezone ahead of you so it's already Thursday here. Will do this on Wednesday next week.


  8. Lovely to have you on-board the Wednesday bus...

    I love your stack - neat and all in a row - my pile has started to growl at me...

    p.S. Please consider yourself - tagged for next week...


  9. RYC: I showed up at JFK about 2 weeks ago with two hefty bags full of books. When they saw their eyes lit up like saucers. I explained about the blog and all of the books that I had and that I didn't have space for them and they said that as long as they were in very good condition (as close to perfect as possible) they would keep them.

  10. Hi Vanessa, finally did the meme here:
