Weekly Geeks #7

Pin It

I skipped WG last week, since it was about catching up with my book reviews. Luckily, I'm all caught up there.

Let’s have Photos Week.

1. Decide what to illustrate and start taking photos: Most of you are book bloggers, so you may want to post photos of your favorite reading spot, your TBR pile(s), your local book store, your favorite librarian, your child reading, etc. You may want to post several photos of a certain topic (like all nine of your kids reading!) or a mixed bag of photos that are unrelated except that they’re bookish. Or you may want to post just one photo, it’s up to you. If you have a different type of blog, post photos of whatever you think is suitable.

2. Create a post of your photos.

3. Don’t forget! Also link in your post to another participant’s WG photo post. Weekly Geeks is a community thing, remember! If you’re one of the first finished, of course, you may have to add your link later. See if you can find someone you don’t normally read to link to.

4. Once your post is up, come back and leave a link to that specific post.

Here are some pics of books around my house:



Books in my cabinet.



A closer look at my cute book girl. I bought this from the Etsy shop The Dreamy Giraffe.


For some reason, some of my photos end up sideways when I post them. Everybody lean!


Part (yes, part) of my Martha Stewart Living collection.


Now for #3 of this week's challenge, linking to some other posts:

Book Nut took some great shots of her kids in a fountain. We have one of those in our park here too. I took some great pics of the kid last year- scrapbook worthy. There is just something joyful and spontaneous about kids in a fountain.

Nymeth took a few shots of her cat surrounding by books. I love taking pics of my cats as well.

Debi takes a good shot of a nice stack of books she recently acquired. I've been known to do that :).

  6. Great Post! In fact it was the inspiration for doing mine. Thank you.

    I have a hard copy of Watership Down too. I got mine when I spent a summer in England as a student. (1978) I just couldn't pass it up as it was illustrated in the most beautiful watercolors.

    And yes, library sales are the best!

  11. I love seeing bookshelves too. My only complaint - I can't quite read all the titles....

  12. Nice books! I love seeing others shelves. And the sideways picture makes it easier to read the titles. I had years worth of MSL that I just tossed a few years ago. I should have tried to sell them or something.
