Armchair BEA: Introductions First!

Design credit: Nina of Nina Reads

Hello wonderful Readers and Armchair BEA...ers... :)

Since I couldn't go to BEA I was really sad :(... THEN I found all these awesome bloggers and Armchair BEA. So today we start with introductions, here is a little bit about me...
  • Please tell us a little about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? 
    • Hello, my name is Stephanie aka Gorelenore on Twitter and the blog, and I have been blogging since the end of January 2012, so only a few months. I got into it because my husband said that I needed a hobby and it should involve books because I read ALL THE TIME. So I started my blog and everything just kind of snowballed from there. 
  • What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
  • Tell us one non-book related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you. 
    • Um, well, I am not sure how many people actually read my About Me page, so I guess it would be that I am a teacher. I got my Master’s in Humanities with a specialization in Art History in 2010 and immediately got a job at the local community college teaching Survey of Western Culture. I love it! And it seems that my students really like me. I am pretty young so a lot of them are my age or a little older. 
  • Where do you see your blog in 5 years? 
    • Hopefully, still going strong. I hope to form more relationships with other bloggers, authors, and publishers for more giveaways and interviews. I think that this type of blogging really involves the community as a whole and I would love to become imbedded in it more. 
  • Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
    •  Not really. I have always really enjoyed reading Young Adult works, they are easy reads, especially when you are getting your graduate degree and need something softer. I have to say that what is has done is improved my reading. I am reading a lot more, and faster then I thought I ever could.

Thanks for visiting!!!

  1. I may only be getting my undergrad right now, but I agree on your point about easy reads. I've been trying to tackle A Tale of Two Cities, but sometimes it's just too much thinking!

    1. Yea, YA reads are much quicker and less thought involved...most of the time.

  2. Aww, already reading Rapture!! I hope it's good and that you're enjoying it :) :) Have fun at aBEA! :) ;)

    PS: Turn off the captcha for this week ;) It's easier for people to comment ;) ;)

    1. Rapture is getting pretty good. I love the story :).

      Thanks for letting me know about captcha, I thought it was off already, but I guess it reset at some point :/

  3. Yay teacher bloggers! (though I'm on the other end of the spectrum, in elementary school!)
    It was great visiting your blog via Armchair BEA, I hope you have a great week!
