Armchair BEA Introduction

Here’s a little about me via the 5 questions I chose. My bio and my online profile about sections give additional tidbits.
1) Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Single, love a variety of escapist fiction, enjoy crafty hobbies like crochet – sewing – beading, most of my online profiles can be found under my nickname ForstRose which comes from my two favorite colors – forest green and dusty rose
How long have you been blogging? Over 7yrs
Why did you get into blogging? I wrote what was supposed to be a short blurb for a friend’s first book and it turned into a couple paragraphs. She mentioned book reviewing and the rest is history.
Where in the world are you blogging from? The Central Valley of CA, USA

2) Describe your blog in just one sentence. I think the title ‘Bibliophile’s Retreat’ pretty much says it. A book lover’s escape/paradise.

  1. One day, my friend. One day. Of course, it may mean I have to get over the claustrophobia and get on an airplane around weird people… No, scratch that. We will make it work somehow! Seriously, though, thanks for the shoutout! It has been my sincerest pleasure getting to know you over the years. Oh, and if any of my followers are reading this? This is the one you can blame me on. She was the one who got me started blogging to begin with!
