It's Day One for Armchair BEA! YAY! And this is my first time participating from the home desk chair, which is NOT anywhere near as comfy as the one in the header!
But it's "Introduction" day and we're all answering a few of those "getting to know you" kinds of questions, so here goes:
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Gosh, I've been blogging about books for a couple of years now, but haven't done too much in the way of networking or reaching out to other bloggers...until now. I've always loved books and since I'm always talking about books, what would be more perfect for me?
What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
Between print galleys and e-galleys I've got several books going right now. Real life got in my way for a few weeks and now I'm scrambling to catch up.
1. Faith Bass Darling's Last Garage Sale by Lynda Rutledge
2. Alys, Always by Harriett Lane
3. Abdication by Juliet Nicolson
4. Unexpected Guest by Anne Korkeakivi
5. Istanbul Passage by Joseph Kanon
What is your favorite feature on your blog (i.e. author interviews, memes, something specific to your blog)?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my author interviews! I've been blessed to have been able to talk with many really fine and legendary authors! I love talking to people about writing!
What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
Oh that's way too easy, Bramasole, the charming house from UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN! I mean, come on, who wouldn't want to go there? And of course, there's also the legendary Algonquin Hotel bar where the really brilliant writers like Dorothy Parker once held court.
Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
No, not really, I still love what I love. But I have gotten a bit more adventurous and stepped out of my comfort zone more often.
Well, that didn't hurt too badly! Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
