Armchair BEA: who am I and whatnot.

Monday, May 23, 2011

If you have never been here before and have only come across my little blog from Armchair BEA, then welcome and thanks so much for dropping by! Today's supposed to be all about introducing yourself and your blog, so hello!

This blog, Random Ramblings, is full of random bookish things; reviews, discussions, random musings, random thoughts, rants, raves, and every once in a while, some personal thoughts as well. I started book blogging January of 2010, and have fallen in love with it ever since.

I first discovered what Book Expo America was all about at that time, but didn't get to go last year. I really swore to myself I'd go this year, but things just didn't go as planned.

I did however attend the Armchair BEA and found it really enjoyable. So this year, I'm excited to meet more book bloggers, and more readers.

I would love to visit your blogs too so go ahead and link below especially if you're part of the Armchair BEA this year. We could also always talk on Twitter! Enjoy this year's virtual Book Expo, and have fun! Happy Reading!


  1. I come here every once in awhile.:) This is my first time with Armchair BEA. Really looking forward to all it has to offer!


  2. Hey Jillian, like you I really wanted to go to New York this year, but since this is the last full week of school, my employer would definitely frown on my taking off. I did not participate in the Armchair BEA and am hoping to do a little bit with it too. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. I'm not sure if I'll ever make it to BEA, but I'm happy to be apart of Armchair BEA instead!

  4. We all wish we could be there this year, but I'm so glad we can get to know eachother this way! :)

  5. I think the running theme for those of us who couldn't attend is "NEXT YEAR!" But even then, I don't know for sure if I'll be able to go. But Armchair BEA is still awesome and I'm so glad we can all meet awesome new bloggers this way!

  6. I'm going to break the trend and say I'm not actually planning to ever do the "real" BEA. Does that make me a bad blogger? =oP

    Nice to meet you!

    Here's my ArmchairBEA kick-off post.

  7. This is my first year with ArmChair BEA and I'm really looking forward to it!
