Monday, May 23: Who are you, and how do you Armchair?
You’ll probably be getting a lot of new visitors to your blog this week, so introduce yourself in a post! And if you specialize in a particular genre, share what it is and why you love it. Also, tell us how you’re doing Armchair BEA – where you are, what you’re excited about, what you hope will happen this week.
Me? You want to know about lil ole me? Well, thanks for asking!
Hi there. I’m Heather. And I’m a book nut. A bookaholic. Collector of stories. Lover of words. You know the type. You’re probably one yourself! I come to you today from my home is hot and humid North Carolina. Heavy on the hot and humid today. Whew!
I am totally indiscriminate in my reading choices. I do not choose genres; I choose books. Anything that sounds good is definitely something I want to read. Some favorite authors are: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Jeff Smith, Angela Carter, Jane Austen, Wilkie Collins, Bill Willingham, Melissa Marr, Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, Salman Rushdie, Michael Chabon, and on and on. It’s not like you have all day. Favorite books? The Graveyard Book by Gaiman, Nation by Pratchett, The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Chabon, the Fables series by Willingham, all of Clare’s, Marr’s, and Black’s books, Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Rushdie, The Woman in White by Wilkie, and yet again, I could go on and on.
As I said, I’m doing my BEA from here, my home, in NC. See?
What I hope will happen? A totally love-a-thon for books, of course!
