For the next week, many of my posts will be related to Armchair BEA. What is Armchair BEA?
Book bloggers unable to attend the BEA Bloggers Conference or Book Expo America (BEA) in New York City, but would like to ‘meet’ other book bloggers and publishers to discuss books and book blogging can participate in this virtual event.
Hello, all! If you’re just visiting Chrisbookarama for the first time because you followed a link here from Armchair BEA, here’s a little bit about me. I’ve chosen 5 questions to answer from the Introductory post.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
I’ve been book blogging for a long time, 7 years in January. First, I was book-a-rama, then finally settled on Chrisbookarama. I’m a lady from Nova Scotia, Canada. I have a husband, a kid, 2 cats, and a dog. You can call me Chris. Besides reading, I like running, crocheting, and long walks on the beach (no, really!).
I first started blogging after a member of my online book club did. It looked like fun. Any excuse to talk about books is a good excuse. I have eclectic reading tastes, but I mostly review classics, thrillers, and mysteries.
Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online.
If it’s a little weird, I want to read it then tell you about it.
What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year?
It wasn’t a great reading year for me last year. I didn’t read as much as I used to read. There were a couple of excellent books though. Revenge by Yoko Ogawa is an excellent collection of interrelated creepy short stories. The Long Ships by Frans G Bengtsson is Viking adventure!
This year is a much better reading year. I’m so happy. My favorite so far is The Three by Sarah Lotz. That’s another creepy one about the children survivors of three separate plane crashes.
What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like?
Well, an ideal reading space would look like this pin on Pinterest. In reality, I spend most of my reading time on my bed with coffee. Like this:
Share your favorite book or reading related quote.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all. –Oscar Wilde
