Armchair BEA: How do I armchair



Welcome to my little corner of the Blogosphere.  I'm Robin and I'll admit it, I'm an addict. A book addict.  Have been ever since I learned to read at six years old.  I've collected a fair amount of books (I like to keep my books) over the years and our overflowing bookshelves are a testament to that.  I bought a nook last year and discovered the world of e-books.  So many new temptations out there.  *grin*  

How do I roll?  I'm a Jill of all trades at the moment.  It all sort of crept up on me and before you know it, a full busy life but I wouldn't trade it for anyone's.   I'm a homeschooling mom, student, aspiring writer, business owner, book blogging, bookaholic. 

A few random facts:  

We have a noisy household with four very talkative cats, my extrovert husband and son who love to share everything.  I'm an introvert which is probably why I love writing. It allows me peace and quiet time. 

I have another blog - a challenge blog to read 52 Books in 52 Weeks. It originally started as a we need inspiration to read challenge within my the Well Trained Mind homeschool forum. It sort of blossomed from there and I have folks from all over the blogosphere participating now. Sunday's are the start of our book week and every week I post something related to books. (duh)   I have a A B C theme so each week starts with the next letter in the alphabet. When I reach Z start all over again.  There are mini challenges within the challenge and I'm having fun exploring new topics. 

I'm almost done with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Liberal Arts.  When I'm done with this class in June, I finished.   *Yeah*   So psyched. 

James loves to write fan fiction about Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog and a few other video characters.  He has several notebooks full of stories (makes a mom proud)  and started blogging:  check them out here and here .

Make yourself at home, pour yourself a cup of tea, pull up a chair and explore.  Check out my linkbar which tells all about my writing, book challenges, what's on my nightstand and other projects. 

Looking forward to meeting lots of new bloggers from around the blogosphere through ARMCHAIR BEA. Thank you to Amy and all the rest of the organizers. Looking forward to all the fun this week. Will make up for not being able to go to New York. Maybe next year.


So how do you Armchair?

  6. Hey Robin! I've touched base with you about writing because of ROW80, but I had no idea that we were kindred spirits with keeping our books. I also have a TON of books (3000+, to be close to exact). There is something about a home library that is so satisfying. =O)

    I hope you enjoy the week. I will definitely be stopping by again!

    @Staci - I think all introverts need an extrovert in their life.

    @Michelle - Love my home library. Now just need a bigger house. :)

  9. I love your challenge ... I'm going to have to check it out. It sounds reasonable and doable. Of course, I always say that and then halfway through challenges, I get tired of them. That is why I stuck to "shorter" challenges this year so I didn't get too burnt out. It was fun to get to know more about you.
