What's On Your Desk Wednesday?

What's On Your Desk Wednesday is a weekly book blog meme hosted by Sassy Brit of Alternative-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.

Peter from KyusiReader tagged me last Wednesday, but due to time zone differences and my work schedule, I wasn't able to post pictures of my desk and tag people. If you can't do it this Wednesday as I am already late posting this (at least according to my time zone), no problem. Just post your pictures and tag your fellow bloggers next Wednesday. It's a lot of fun though.

So here's my desk:
Yes, I know. It's small, but it has so much junk on it.

I have more than five bookish things: three how to write novels/short story books; a writer's idea book which I use when I have a writer's block or if I need to do any writing exercise; and two books that I'm currently reading, Shanghai Girls and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. As for non-bookish things (and I have more than five in this category), I have a red notebook sandwiched between the books. Piled on top of the books is a see-through plastic case where I put all of my essential writing tools: index cards, pens, pencils, highlighters, post-it markers and notes, and etc. Behind that is my printer, scanner, and copier. I also have my red cellphone, my coffee cup, and my mouse.

More non-bookish things: my HP desktop PC with a red (my favorite color) background; my MP3 player; and my bills, which I pay mostly online. I also have a cushion for my wrists in front of my keyboard since I have arthritis in my hands.

Tag! You're it! Here are the 5 people I've chosen for this fun activity.

1. Yvette of True Crime Books Reviews.

2. Suzanne of Chick With Books.

3. Alaine of Queen of Happy Endings.

4. Anna of Diary of an Eccentric.

5. Okbolover of Okbo Lover.

No cheating, guys. And remember...have fun. :D


  1. Boy, your desk is so neat compared to mine. Once I get access to a camera (I'm still in the dark ages when it comes to digital technology) I'll post a pic of my desk. :)

  3. Hi, Anna. If I had a larger desk, it would be cluttered with more junk. Ha ha. As for the picture, no worries.

    Yvette, I ended posting mine the following Wednesday too so it's ok.

    I look forward to seeing your desks.

    yes it's late, I had to wait for Wednesday to come around the corner to do it :)

    I'm reading Shanghai Girls as well. It's turning out to be a great read. Thanks for the tag.

  5. Hi, Okbolover. No problem about waiting until the following Wednesday. As for Shanghai Girls...isn't it a good story? I am enjoying it as well.
