Today is the first day of Armchair BEA and it is all about introductions. We received some questions to introduce ourselves, so let’s get started:
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
I blog from Cape Town in the beautiful South Africa. We get overlooked a lot when it comes to bookish events, so I am loving being able to join in the fun online. I have always loved reading and it was just a natural progression for me to get into blogging. My first blog was more about life in general especially my love of cross stitching and my Jack Russells. Looking back I can’t really remember what made me take the leap into book blogging but now I have been blogging on and off for a few years. Unfortunately life gets in the way a lot. Especially now that I am working again. I have never really been able to commit to blogging very day. But I am hoping to learn a lot from my fellow Armchair BEA’s this year. I want to expand from just reviews into discussion posts as well. I want my blog to be a fun place to be.
Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online.
Reviews from all media. Be prepared . . . "and stuff" will be added :)
Facebook: Just Reading For Fun . . . and stuff
Spread the love by naming your favorite blogs/bloggers (doesn’t necessarily have to be book blogs/bloggers).
I follow a load of bloggers and two of my favorites are:
Krysta from My Life in Food
Bob from The Guilded Earlobe
Share your favorite book or reading related quote.
Oh my goodness, to choose only one . . . these days you find loads every day passing through your Facebook newsfeed. This one is a favorite.

What book would you love to see as a movie?
One of my favorite books so far this year, is THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir. McGyver in outer space! Andy is one of the success stories that many writers only dream about and now the movie rights have been bought by one of the huge movie studios. Way to go, Andy! We are going to see THE MARTIAN on the big screen! But who will play the star role?
So on with the expo! I hope to meet you all in the following few days.
