Armchair BEA Kickoff: Getting to know me!

Today is the first day of Armchair BEA!  For those of us not able to attend BEA in New York we have the chance to participate in Armchair BEA; BEA events right in the comfort of your own home.  Thank you to all of the Armchair BEA organizers for putting this week together. I am excited to participate!

Each day this week Armchair BEA will provide blogging prompts for the participants and today's prompt is:

Who are you, and how do you Armchair?

If you have never stopped by my blog, welcome to See Scoot Read! My name is Scoot.  I am a self diagnosed book-a-holic.  I love to read and I decided to start this book blog for my own enjoyment. This is basically me turning something I already love into an even bigger hobby. I read Young Adult and some Adult fiction: General, Paranormal, Historical, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sci-fi, Adventure, Dystopian, etc.!  I also enjoy Children's Mid-Grade books. Along with steady postings of book reviews I regularly post book news, occasional author interviews and giveaways.  Follow me on my journey through the pages!

10 Random facts about Scoot:
I have never posted a picture of myself on the blog, but the legs on the right are mine. :)
1.  TODAY marks 8 years of "happily ever after" with my husband!
2.  My real name is not Scoot, but Scoot has been my nickname since I was a toddler.
3. My favorite color is Pink.
4. My favorite smell is fresh laundry.
5. I have lived in the same state all of my life.
6. My favorite icecream flavor is Chocolate.
7.  I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 24.
8.  My favorite place to vacation is the Beach.
9.  I was the first person in my family to graduate from College.
10. I have a little Yorkie named Charlie.

That's cool that you were the first from your family to graduate college! And how did you get your nickname? I am guessing you were scooting around?

Happy anniversary!

Fresh laundry (particularly with Downy) is my favorite scent! I keep telling my husband that I wish they made it in a perfume. :) I do have a clean linen air freshener that I spray often.

We have so much in common! Happy Anniversary by the way. This year was also 8 years with my man. I love the smell of clean linen too. Nice to meet you and have a great BEA week!

Aw. Congratulations on living your happy ever after. I love the pic. It's very rural-like and I love the country side. I love the smell of sun-dried laundry. It's a happy smell.
