Armchair BEA: Kick Off and Best of 2011

Hey everyone! My kick-off post is a little late, but I’m here and ready for Armchair BEA. The question for day one is, Who are you and how do you armchair? So here’s a little bit more about me.

I am a recent alumna of a small, private liberal arts college in central Ohio. Starting in August of 2011 I will be pursuing my MLIS (Master’s of Library and Information Sciences). My hope is to eventually become a children’s and youth services librarian in a public library setting. I have been blogging for almost one year and my official blogoversary is this Saturday--that’s why you’ll see some giveaways and guest posts this week in addition to my Armchair BEA posts.

With that out of the way, here are a few random things about me I thought you might like to know.

1.) I’m an animal lover and volunteer often at my local humane society. I have a 5 year old yellow lab named Macey. Those who read my blog often get to see lots of pictures of her, and sometimes she worms her way into the videos.

2.) I started ran cross-country from seventh grade through my sophomore year of college. I ran a little bit senior year, but sprained my ankle early on in the season. I have been trying to get back into the habit of running, and have only somewhat succeeded.

3.) I spent my junior year of college in England, namely Devon.

4.) I love home cooked food, and don’t often buy things that are processed or pre-made. I enjoy cooking and baking, but need more experience in both of these arenas. There are so many recipes I’d like to try making.

As for my best of 2011? Thus far, I’d have to say...


  1. I haven't read any of your favorites for the year, but they are all on my TBR list! Glad you liked them :) Good luck with grad school!

    Here are my favorites in 2011!

  2. LOVE 'If I Stay' ... I listed 'Where She Went' as one of my faves of this year. 'Heist Society' is so fun. I definitely need to re-read it before 'Uncommon Criminals' comes out.

    Yay for MLIS students! =) Public libraries are awesome.

  3. Oh my goodness!!!!!! That's what my Master's will be too!!! :D

  4. I'd really like to read Between Shades of Gray. It sounds so awesome!

  5. We were both runners! I did track(and the cross-country coach begged me to run, but for some reason I never did) and I loved it! :)

  6. The Woman in White continues to intrigue me.
