Armchair BEA Introduction



Design credit: Nina of Nina Reads

  1. 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 homeschooling mom. I have an English degree with a minor in history. Needless to say, I'm a book nerd - always have been. I have been blogging for three years. I got into blogging because I love to read and talk about the books I read. 

2.Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures. 
I am blogging from Wisconsin. Random fact about Wisconsin. . . . Patrick Rothfuss is fromWisconsin and he is one of my favorite authors -- his signings are so much fun too.
3. What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013? 
I am currently reading Spartacus: Rebellion, Royal Mistress and The Next Time You See Me

4. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why? 

This is a difficult question because there are so many authors I would love to eat dinner with. I think I'd have to choose Neil Gaiman, because . . . Neil Gaiman. No other explanation necessary.

5.  What literary location would you most like to visit? Why? 

I would love to participate in the Bloomsday Festival in Dublin. I'd get to see Dublin and participate in all the Joyce celebrations.

  5. Hi! Nice to meet you! You should definitely come over sometime for Bloomsday! I admit I'm not the biggest Joyce fan which is sacrilege lol especially since my lecturer is like the foremost authority on Joyce! Oh well. Neil Gaiman would be a most excellent dinner date lol

  9. Hi! thanks for dropping by my site and wow! I salute you for being a homeschooling mom I always wonder how that works? I hope you could make a blog post about it like do the school/any specific department send out all necessary guidelines kids needs to learn? how about the schedule? anything online? or what? I'm sorry I'm clueless and so curious about all of this stuff>.<

    and I love love love Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer I recently went to their Ninja Gig it was AWESOMELY EPIC!

  11. I often go hiking in Wisconsin - Lion's Den, near Port Washington, is one of my favorite birding spots. Enjoy the week!

  12. I want to visit Wisconsin sometime! We have relatives who live outside of Chicago, so I hope to combine trips one of these days. Having fun with Armchair BEA, but need to get to what I'm supposed to be doing this morning, so this is my last visit for now. I LOVE Patrick Rothfuss' books, too!

    Happy Armchair BEA!

    This is so awful but... I have never read Gaiman. I have got to put that on my must-do list for this year.
