Getting to Know You: Armchair BEA Intro

May 27, 2015 Q&A 20

Greetings Bookworms!

It’s time for my favorite virtual book nerd gathering that coincides with an actual convention since ever. Pull up your armchairs folks, it’s time for Armchair BEA. Book Expo America is going on in NYC and those of us stuck at home are going to party like it’s 1999. Crank up the Ricky Martin and live la vida loca with a bunch of book nerds on the internet! I’m going to kick things off by answering five questions off of the official Armchair BEA questionnaire. Shall we?

1. Tell us a bit about yourself: How long have you been blogging? Where are you from? How did you get into blogging?

Allow myself to introduce…myself. I’m Katie. I’ve been blogging here at Words for Worms for nearly 3 years now (my blog is a threenager! No wonder it’s been so tantrum-y lately…) I live in the part of Illinois that isn’t Chicago. The middle part. With all the corn. I got into blogging after watching some friends having a ball in the blogosphere and realizing that nobody in my real life cared much about what I was reading.

2. What is your theme song?

This is SUCH a good question! Over the years, I’ve had a number of songs I’ve referred to as my theme song. I’ve been known to insert my name “Katie” into any number of songs in place of “Baby,” so I can make pretty much any song about me. If I have to narrow it down to a single song, though, I’m going with “Kate” by Ben Folds Five. I’ve never gone by Kate, always KatIe, but I love the image of seeing daisies in my footsteps.

3. What book are you reading right now?

I’m triple dipping, y’all. I’ve got The Dog Stars by Peter Heller going as an analog book, Whiskey and Charlie by Annabel Smith on my kindle, and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn in my earbuds.

4. Share your favorite blog post on your blog.

I’m a huge fan of my Literary Love Connection posts. Snaponine, Scarcliff, Minurtagh, Arigo, and Jeanster Valprynne are the greatest fictional celebrity couples that never happened.

5. Share a photo of your bookshelf. Don’t mind if I do:

    Lovely bookshelf! It looks far better organized than any I’ve ever had. I’m lucky if my books even make it onto a shelf! (though most of what I read are e-books these days).

    Hot damn. Three books at once! I can only handle two. And right now, I’m not even Nooking. I’m just booking with the Cary Elwes book. I’ve finally gotten over my pain from the experience of acquiring said book to start reading it.

    Hi, Katie. It is good to get to know you through your intro post.
    I am not surrounded by friends and family who are passionate about reading either, so blogging is a wonderful way to connect with like-minded people for me too.

  4. The Reading Wench

    This is my first Armchair BEA as well. I read Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist a few years ago, and I loved it! I also enjoyed the movie and the soundtrack is awesome.

    That’s a good-looking bookshelf! I like your theme song. I have no idea what mine would be. I’ll have to give that one some thought. Have a great week!
