Armchair BEA: Hello Friends!

Hello everyone! I am excited to be starting off this week of Armchair BEA posts!  I am happy to participate in the off-site, lounge-in-your-pajamas-style BEA! To start the week off below is a short and sweet intro to myself!  Enjoy.

 

Who are you?

I am Scoot!  (no that is not my real name - it is just a nickname)  I have been blogging for almost two years now and I really enjoy it.  This blog is just for my own enjoyment and to share my passion for books with the world. 

What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading Seeds of Rebellion (Beyonders #2) by Brandon Mull, The City's Son by Tom Pollock, and The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan!  Yes - that is three books at one time. One audio for in the car, one audio for work and one 'real' book.

One non-book-related thing you may not know about me:

I have 30 nieces and nephews under the age of 16.  That is a LOT of kid birthdays to attend throughout the year.  I don't have any children of my own - yet - but I strive to everyone's favorite aunt. ;)

Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?

I don't know if my tastes have necessarily changed, but I have found myself to be a much more picky reader.  I have so many books waiting to be read that if I am not really enjoying something I just put it away.  I NEVER used to leave a book unread - if I started it, I finished it.  Now I find myself giving up after a while if it doesn't meet my higher standards.

Scoot sounds like a great nickname ;) Woaaaah isn't that multi-tasking? I hope I could read like 4 books and don't get mixed up with them XD

That is A LOT of nieces and nephews! How many siblings do you have?

I know what you mean--I used to finish every book, too. But now there are so many to read that if I'm not into a book, I don't finish.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi, hope you're having a happy Armchair BEA so far. :)

Wow, with that many nieces and nephews I bet you have had your fair share of birthday cake.

I salute you for your awesome multitasking too, I tried listening to audio books but either got bored or too involved (where I don't want to read anything else.)

I always read multiple books at a time too!

30 nieces and nephews is a lot of birthday presents!

Hope you have a great Armchair BEA!

I am trying to get myself to put books down that don't agree with me. It is at war with the "finish your plate" philosophy and a struggle.

Glad to see you around Armchair BEA hope we cross paths again.

Haha, my favorite days are those spent lounging around in pajamas.

That's an epic amount of nieces and nephews. And they all live near you? Insane.

If you have the time, I’d love to hear from you at my armchair BEA post.
