SASSY BLOG MEME: What’s on your desk Wednesday? (17th June)

What’s on your desk Wednesday? is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Sassy Brit of

Check my blog out each Wednesday for the post titled What’s on your desk Wednesday?

Here’s what you do:

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 the comments section.

That’s it.

However, for those without digital cameras or blogs of your own, you can do this instead: (or both if you are keen!)

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 and leave your link, so we can come and visit your blog. Or add your answers in the comments.

Feel free to grab the above picture to place on your blog’s sidebar – as a way of showing you are participating, and of course to spread the word!

Thank you everyone for taking the time to come here and comment. It’s truly appreciated. I aim to get back to everyone as soon as possible. Please don’t feel pressured in any way at all. I just want everyone to have fun!


Here’s my answer to What’s on your desk Wednesday?

As usual, I’ve completed both, the photo and the list!

Currently on my desk…rodents!

List at least 5 BOOKISH things on your desk:

1. To Your Own Self Be True, by Ray Melnik
2. Kingdom Come, by J.G. Ballard
3. The Charmer, by Mandasue Heller
4. Relentless, by Simon Kernick
5. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen without zombies!

List at least 5 NON BOOK things. (I’m thinking some of some of the more unusual items on your desk/table?)

1. A gerbil cage
2. Sandy – a gerbil
3. Snowy – another gerbil
4. sawdust
5. gerbil poo
6. chewed up paperwork
7. disinfectant on standby!

Yes, as I am trying to work, my son’s gerbils are busy with their inspections of my desk and computer. They have shredded anything that takes their fancy and have just discovered they can hurl themselves off the desk onto the floor, via my printer, for the pure fun of it! But they are oh, soooo cute!

Tag at least 5 people to do the same. (Absolutely no pressure here!) I’m tagging “new” people, but hope those who already know about this meme will also join in! πŸ™‚

  1. Sassy – got your tag too late for this Wednesday on my blog. I'll see what I can do, though.

  2. Hi Terry!

    Thanks for getting back, no rush – try next Wednesday if you want. πŸ™‚ I don't want to put any pressure on you.

    Take care,


  3. Thanks Vanessa!

    You are welcome…just popping over now to have a look. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Take care,


  4. Hi J.Kaye,

    Thanks, I can't wait to see it!

    Coming over now,

    Take care,


  5. Oh gosh! I wouldn't dare take a pic of my desk! No rodents here, but lots and lots of piles of paper …

    Those who take you up on the challenge are very brave, or very neat!

  6. No worries about being late!

    Thanks for taking the time to do this, EH and Nely – I'm coming over to your place right now.

    No tidying…


  7. I don't think I can participate, I've lost my camera lead and don't have a desk =D

    Thanks for picking me though!

  8. Ah Kate,

    there is a non-camera and non-desk owner variant – basically it's where ever you lay your books – not your hat! But if you wear a hat, chances are you may lay it down on the same place as your books…which is neither here or there…


  9. Sassy – I got to it, but I took you literally and used my desk, so not many books. I have a TBR "list" rather than a pile, and since we're trying to sell the house, most of the clutter had to be packed away. Books are either boxed up in storage or neatly arranged on bookshelves. Boring — but required.
