Armchair BEA 2013 Introduction12:00 AM
Hey fellow book nerds! Nice to meet you. My name is Melissa. I'm a 23 year old blogger and I may or may not have an addiction to books. When I'm not reading you can most likely find me baking some new recipe I found on Pinterest or dancing. Sometimes I multitask and do both at the same time...which then leads to my other favorite thing...cleaning!
I started blogging after I graduated college. I had all this free time to read finally, but no one to discuss books with. My dad randomly suggested I try blogging one day and use my reading buddy, Harley Bear, as a mascot. Now I've been actively blogging for a little over a year and it has been an amazing journey.
I'm from NJ. Which is why it's killing me that I can't make it to BEA this year since it's only a short ride away. But I plan on going to ALA and BEA next year. Anyone else live in the area? I haven't met any bloggers yet in real life. I have been to Books of Wonder once for a signing though so if you go there let me know because I plan on going back for future events.
Last year I participated, but didn't take full advantage of it. I'm excited to join in the twitter parties and Instagram thing. I decided to come back this year because I want to meet more bloggers! I met a few last week during Bout of Books and now we talk daily so I think events like these are awesome for connecting with more readers.
Flow charts and quizzes are my favorite. Whenever I'm reading a magazine I always go for the fun pages first. So I started making them for my blog randomly. Here's a chart to help you decide What Should You Read Next and a quiz to see Which Literary Character Are You?
