Armchair BEA: Introduction

Design Credit: Nina of Nina Reads
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?

Hmm so I am Jen and I have been blogging for probably a year and a half now. I got into to it because I really enjoyed reading blogs like MundieMoms and I wanted to do something similar. Since the Internet first became available for public consumption (yep I'm 31 I remember when that happened) I have been making sites. Normally I made different kind of Manga/Anime involved sites. I even taught myself how to html code. So when I had a website making itch talking about something I love seemed natural. Plus I've discovered so many wonderful books I might not have if I wasn't involved with blogging.

Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures.

I'm in Chicagoland. I say that because I'm in the suburbs of Chicago. There are so many special things about Chicago itself, but if I have to pick something to love the most it's the museums. Plus the easy access. If you live in the suburbs the city is just a train ride away. Plus we have awesome food, I have yet to experience a city with as good of food as Chicago.

Have you previously participated in Armchair BEA? What brought you back for another year? If you have not previously participated, what drew you to the event?

No I haven't and I really wanted to be all into it this year. Being busy though with my kids I even forgot to post this introduction! So its a day late.

What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013?

I'm currently reading Shutdown by Heather Anastasiu, I have read so many good good books this year I don't think I could pick a favorite.

Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.

Hmm I like sports. Especially Hockey, Yay Go Blackhawks!

What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?

Paris, I've kind of developed an obsession since reading Amy Plum's Die for Me series. Being she lives there she describes it perfectly. I so desperately want to sit in a cafe and read.
