Today is the official start to Armchair BEA. Todays topic question is: Who are you, and how do you Armchair?
My name is Cindy. I am a SAHM (stay at home mom). I have a eight year old son who is currently finishing up grade two. He keeps me busy as he is active(from curling in the winter to swimming in the summer. This winter he wants to play hockey). He is like me and has a love of books. He currently reads in two languages English and French. Much better then me I have to say who can only read in English.
I am a Canadian blogger living in Quebec. I am in the burbs of Montreal. I love that I am literally 20 minutes or so from down town Montreal. Growing up I use to live on the east coast in New Brunswick. It was a small nothern town. The complete opposite of here.
As you might noticed my reading is all over the place. I love reading a wide varitey of genres. I dabble in middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction. Personally for me I will read anything that peaks my interest no matter what genre it is. I think that is because growing up I didn’t have all that is out there now. I think the most risque was Judy Blume and VC Andrews. I quality of the books has certainly changed over the years.
This week I am excited about discovering many new bloggers and finding out what else Armchair BEA has planned as well as hopefully hearing how the real BEA is going.
So if you are a new reader please leave a comment and say hi. If you add me to your followers let me know so that I can return the favor.
I have to admit even though I brought my camera with me I didn’t take a lot of pictures but I thought I would share this one taken at BEA with Ethan Zahn from Survivor. He had two children soccer books out at BEA.
(as you can tell the humidity was terrible for my hair)
Have a great day everyone and enjoy Armchair BEA.

Ugh – the humidity! I didn’t get to go to BEA, but I visited NYC last summer and I don’t have a decent picture of myself because of my poor droopy hair. 🙂
Hey and waving back from Alberta!
I remember him from Survivor. I haven’t watched it in a long time. Hope you have a great week!
OMG you met Ethan! I loved him on Survivor! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my blog for Armchair BEA. 🙂 Nice to meet you!
Hi Cindy! I love your blog header, because owls and cats are some of my favorite things. How great your son can read in two languages.
Nice to meet you! I’m a SAHM too (9, 6, & 6)! Happy reading!
I hate the humidity!!! I love summer, but it does numbers on my hair! 🙂
Alyce-The humidity was a killer for me. It was hard to get pictures that I really liked. I think I have more scenery pics then ones of myself.
Deb- LOL waves back to you
Chris-I haven’t watched it much either. For me I just got tired of it because its the same thing all the time.
Chrystal-Ethan was super sweet. I think he was surprised I knew him. His first childrens’ book was gone on the first day (when the pic was taken) so I went back the second day to get another book.
deegarretson- I had an awesome blogger do it for me. Yea its great he can read in two languages.
Thanks everyone for stopping by
Nice to meet ya! Haha Just kidding; I feel like I already do. I love these bits about some of my favorite bloggers. Thanks for sharing and love the picture, hair and all. ;O)
I’ve never been to BEA, but it sounds SO fun! I just wish they’d change the locale – Phoenix, anyone?
Glad to have found you via Armchair BEA!
I really want to go to BEA, but it seems every year that something comes up to stop me. At least I get to participate this way!
I agree with you about Judy Blume and VC Andrews. There is such an amazing selection these days that there never was before. And much of the YA reads are so much more intelligent and thought-provoking then they were when I was little.
I’ve been to your site quite a few times before. Sorry I haven’t followed before now. I thought I had been.
Happy reading from the armchair this non-BEA week!
YA is one genre that has improved 100 percent since I was a YA. It is thrilling to see, and fun to read, but I do wish we would have been able to experience some of this great literature when I was the right age!
On behalf of the Armchair BEA organizers, we hope you have a blast this week!
I love your blog design — so pretty! Yay for Canadian book bloggers. I wasn’t following you before, but I definitely am now.
