There’s no traveling to New York for BEA (Book Expo America) for me this year, so I’m excited to be participating in Armchair BEA instead. You’ve heard of fantasy football? Well, Armchair BEA is fantasy publishers’ trade show.
We’re supposed to start out by answering a few questions to introduce ourselves.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I’m a public librarian, mostly a reader of literary and genre fiction. I got into blogging to recommend the books I love and to try to match books to the right readers, even books I don’t love personally. My four-year blogoversary is coming up on June 3rd! My first post was a review of Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman, narrated by Lenny Henry, because it was so good I had to tell the world about it. It is still one of the best audiobooks I’ve ever listened to.
What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013?
My favorite book so far this year is The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer.
Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
Non-book-related? What is this thing of which you speak? 😉
Which is your favorite post that you have written that you want everyone to read?
I’m rather fond of my Ten Signs You Are Obsessed with Book Blogging and Bloggiesta post.
Armchair BEA is the experience for book bloggers to participate in Book Expo America (BEA) from the comfort of their homes. This experience is created lovingly by book bloggers specifically for our peers who for whatever reason are not able to participate in the main conference in New York each year. We bring publishers, authors, and bloggers together in celebrating our love for all things literary by hosting celebrations such as sneak peeks, daily discussion topics, and sponsored giveaways.
Thank you to The Armchair BEA Blog Team for hosting this event!
