The organizers of Armchair BEA have asked us to share a little about ourselves to kick off the week:
I'm a wife, mom, reader, and lazy gardener who loves movies, music, and entertaining. I got into blogging as a way to record my thoughts on books, interact with other readers and to learn something new. I can't believe I've been blogging for three years already!
One of my favorite features on my blog is Fairy Tale Fridays. It's been largely missing for a few months recently due to a Bleak House readalong and other life events but it's making a comeback next week. It was inspired by the Omaha LitFest a couple of years ago and might focus on new books or movies, fairy tale authors or illustrators, or it may be a review of new or classic fairy tales...or both. I can't wait to pull out my books again!
My reading tastes have not necessarily changed since I started blogging but they have certainly expanded and I push myself to read more of the things that used to be on the fringe of my reading. I definitely read more nonfiction, although that has as much to do with having had more time to listen to NPR in the past few years. Blogging certainly has opened my eyes to books from all over the world as I've been exposed to new books and "met" new people from all over the world.
