Greetings and Salutations: Armchair BEA
Yep, that’s me! I’ve been blogging in some capacity since 2007, focusing on books since 2009. By day I work in a private high school and at night I’m a blogger, reader, and grand champion Skee-ball player. My husband and I have been together since our salad days in college–1992–and enjoy taking road trips, eating out, and generally getting into harmless mischief wherever we go.
Like you guys, I’m a big fan of books and prefer YA, non-fiction (usually memoirs or travel essays), and contemporary fiction. I read the classics with my students at school during the year, so I tend to favor lighter fare in my free time–that means no Russian lit challenges for me!
I’m participating in Armchair BEA because, for the second year running, our overnight school trip coincides with the expo. Instead of rubbing shoulders with my favorite bloggers, publishers, and authors, I’ll be attempting to stay out of the line of fire as my students engage in outdoor team building exercises. (Exactly how paintball fits this description is beyond me.)
But enough about me! Tell me a bit about you. Are you a first-time visitor to Book, Line, and Sinker or an old friend? Where are you from and what’s one of your favorite AND least favorite books of all time?
