One of these years I plan on going to BEA. Perhaps in 2016 when the event moves to Chicago? That’s a lot closer to this Midwestern gal. Until that fine day comes about I’m delighted to participate in the Armchair BEA! The organizers of this event are awesome and tireless and I have to say THANKS right off the bat.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
I’m Jennifer…or Jen, maybe even Jenni if you’re a 7th grade classmate of mine.
I’ve been blogging for just under 2 years. I started because no one in my real life wanted to nerd out over books with me. I had to go find my people.
I’m blogging from the glorious state of Wisconsin. I’m way up in the northern part of the state…or “practically Canada” as we call it.
Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. — so we can connect more online.
Describe my blog in one sentence? It’s just another book blog. Ha, no. That’s boring.
My blog represents my lovely, eclectic, literary lifestyle! (That’s a little better.)
You can find me all over the place, if you so desire:
I hope we can hook up at all, or some of, the above places!
What is your favorite blogging resource?
My fellow bloggers. I don’t know what I’d do without them. Everyone is always so helpful and full of information. There’s no substitute. (I love you guys!)
Share your favorite book or reading related quote.

This is the one of those events that could lure out my introvert self 😉 I have zero idea on how much it all costs…I should probably look into that!
I was going to say that I've been to Toronto and loved it…but then I remembered that it was actually Thunder Bay, lol. I have no opinion on Toronto because I've never been :DIt's #1 on my bucket list too!
Thank goodness we all found one another!LOL, yes, with an i. I thought I was so damn cool.
You have found your people! I love the book blogging community more than anything about it so far.
I agree – I had to find my people too! Blogging certainly helped me with that.
I don't think it's anything unreasonable. I'm just really cheap!
LOL, I totally understand! So am I. Or at least my husband is, ha ha.
Thank goodness 😀 I can't imagine a better group of people! Thanks for visiting, Danielle.
Hallelujah! We're awesome!! (To toot our own horn, lol)
I agree, other bloggers are definitely one of the best resources! Great gif 🙂
Aw, such a great answer to the blogging resource question! I never even thought of that, but together we are the best resource! 🙂
Jennifer, Jen, Jenni…ha! Love that. I went to BEA when it was in Chicago about, what, 14 years ago? It was a great time. Bill Clinton was the keynote speaker and he blew me away. That man can talk and he certainly knows books.
We're kinda the best community ever 😀
Right?? I don't think I make it 3 days without reaching out to another book blogger for advice, lol. They save me 😀
Ohhh! Bill Clinton! How I would LOVE to hear his speak. So cool, Chris!
