I signed up for the Armchair BEA at the last minute because I just heard about it. Although the BEA is happening a mere 90 minutes from my house, it might as well be on the other side of the country. Between finances and child care arrangements, it just couldn’t happen. Maybe some other time! But I am thankful to the organizers of the Armchair BEA for finding a great way for all of us to participate at home. I’m going to try to follow along on Twitter as well as keep up with all the blogs participating, but I’m still lost when it comes to Twitter parties. They go way too fast!

As you can tell if you’ve been reading this blog for more than, oh, five minutes, I like books. No, that’s an understatement. It would be more accurate to say that I am addicted to books, which is why approximately half of this blog is dedicated to book reviews.  Sadly, most of them are in storage right now because we recently moved and may be moving again in a few months. I did have a moment while touting 17 big, heavy bins out of my house where I wished I was more of a jewelry fan or something a little lighter. But nothing will ever compare to my beloved books. Hardcover, softcover, trade paperbacks, and now digital- as long as they contain a story that captures my attention, I’m hooked.

I don’t really read in an armchair. I’m more of a sprawl out on the sofa type. Usually I have either a dog or a cat at my feet, sometimes both, sometimes they sprawl out practically on top of me (which is fine for the cat, but not so much the 65 pound dog).  I recently finished Spellbound (the Net Galley copy) and just started “Born at Midnight.” My favorite genres seem to rotate on a regular basis. Currently, it’s YA paranormal fiction, although Urban Fantasy and medical thrillers also top my list. I also love reference books of all kinds, as they help me on my quest to obtain enough knowledge to win on Jeopardy someday.

I’ve never been great at introductions, so hopefully that’s enough knowledge about me for now (and not too much!). Thanks for stopping by and reading!
