Yay for the first day of Armchair Bea!
What is Armchair Bea?
Armchair BEA is a way for those who can't fly out to Book Expo America to join in on the fun!
Book Expo America (or BEA for short) is a huge expo for book professionals - and that includes book bloggers! You can visit the official BEA website here.
For those who can't make it out to New York City, Armchair BEA is the virtual substitute. It's a blog where bloggers can chat, post topics, enter giveaways, and more! You can click on the picture above or click here to visit the blog.
The Topic for Today: Who are you, and how do you armchair?
Who Are You?
First off, I'm Jennifer! I'm mommy to Charlotte, a witty and wonderful three year old girl. I'm happily married - four years this July! I'm a pretty mellow and nice person. I'm a bit of a nerd, and I fully embrace it. Yay Nerdfighters (if you don't know what I'm talking about, you must click on this link)!

I love reading! I've always loved it. I used to read R.L. Stein's Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and every Sweet Valley book I could get my hands on. Now I like to read lots of stuff! I read mostly fiction. Reality is for my day to day life - Reading is my escape. :) I am loving all things paranormal and dystopian at the moment. I just discovered paranormal romance, and I'm hooked.
I also love photography! When my daughter was born, I had lots of time on my hands just sitting in one place (because she would NOT sleep anywhere but in my arms!). So, I got on the computer and learned all I could about photography. It's an expensive, but awesome hobby. Reading is much cheaper, so I usually collect books instead of lenses. :)
How do you Armchair?
I armchair in my living room on my desktop! There is no way I can afford to go to BEA this year, so I'll be joining you all at home. I'm a stay at home mom at the moment, so I can't justify flying across the country for my hobby. I'm trying to butter my DH up for next year! It's not likely, but it's worth a shot!
I think I'll steal my husband's laptop, grab a cup of delicious french press coffee, don my pink snuggie (I love my snuggie <3! It's the NAP material from Brookstone. Mmmmm.), and cuddle up in "the corner of death" on our couch. It's the best spot on our sectional; most of our friends and family fall asleep in that spot! Don't worry, I'm too excited about all of this to fall asleep. ;)
