Armchari BEA: A Few Things About Me!
I really wanted to head to the BEA in New York City this year, but with my son getting married at the end of June, I knew it would not be a possibility. So it looks like this is as close as I will get! That's ok, because now I can start planning for next year.

Armchair BEA was created for us book lovers who are not able to actually attend the event, but still have a good time celebrating our love of books together.
So here are a few things about me:
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
A. Well, my name is actually Joanne and I live in Northern Wisconsin. My four year blogiversary will be in October-Wow, time flies fast! I basically started blogging as a creative outlet for me to share some of the books I read. I also belong to a wonderful book club, but I wanted something beyond that.
2. What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
A. My favorite book so far this year would have to be The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran. My favorite audiobook so far is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. These books are obviously on opposite sides of the genre spectrum, but they are sure awesome!
3. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
A. Did anyone say Doritos? I have to admit that I have an unhealthy love for these cheesy tortilla chips! If there is an open bag near me, it won't be there for long!
4. Where do you see your blog in five years?
A. My blog has already changed so much! I went from posting every day to maybe posting as little as twice a week. Since I've been trying to do some writing myself, I may try to implement some of my work into my blog. We will just have to wait and see where it takes me!
5. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
A. I would love to sit down for tea with Mma Ramotswe, the lead character from The Number One Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith! She is depicted as such a loving and genuinely delightful woman that I would love the opportunity to share bits of her wisdom with me.
Thanks for stopping by today to find out a little more about me! Don't forget to stop over at some other blogs to see what they had to share!
