Thursday Memes



This week's question:
So … the books that you own (however many there may be) … do you display them proudly right there in plain sight for all the world to see? (At least the world that comes into your living room.)
Or do you keep them tucked away in your office or bedroom or library or closet or someplace less “public?”
My answer:
Until just recently they were overflowing in out bookcase in our family room.  But when we became empty nesters, we redid one of the boy's bedrooms into a "reading room / library /office  for me.  We still have books in the family room's bookcase but they are mainly text books from when hubby and I were in college, cookbooks, and some overflow books of mine.  I do, however, proudly show off MY room, because it was something I always wanted.  Someday when the hubby gets the camera fixed, which better be soon for our trip, I will post pictures of where I read and blog.

From Lori's site:
It struck me recently how much time I spend on this computer every day, blogging, chatting or playing games on Facebook, emailing friends and relatives, making cards and calendars, etc. etc. etc.
We depend on each other for book reviews, giveaways, encouragement, friendship, but how well do we really know each other?
So that is what this meme is all about, getting to know each other.

1. Do you eat breakfast every morning?
I usually have cereal and a banana but for the past couple of months I have been eating less in preparation for our vacation.

2. What is your favorite breakfast cereal?

3. What is your favorite brand and flavor of yogurt?
I have a few that I eat throughout the day.  The Yoplait Chocolate Mousse is my dessert at night.

I hope your hubby gets the camera fixed soon, I would love to see your library/office.

Thanks for your visit to My Reading Corner today.

One day I hope to convince my brother to move out so I can knock a hole in the wall and use his room as a library. Although I don't think my Dad will let me.

I like to show off my bookshelves. Check out my response for this week's Booking Through Thursday.

It's good to have a room just for books.

My books are hidden away from the world. Only a select few friends and family are allowed to see them.

Don't think I will ever have a spare room to make into my very own library. We are squashed in here as it is LOL

I cannot function without breakfast!

I can't wait to see your reading room too! Two of my three boys moved out last year and I thought of doing the same thing myself. Oh the bookcases I could build!

My keeper books are on shelves in the living room, my TBR stacks are on my bedroom dresser, my PBS shelf is in my walk-in closet and my blog books are in stacks on my desk. lol there is a future plan for an office but I am not holding my breath.

Don't you just love that Honey Nut bee?
