Introductions All Around


If you are swinging by from Armchair BEA, hi, my name is Carrie and I am a reader.  I will read anything; cereal boxes, lists, cookbooks, how to books, really anything.  But I have my favorite genres; fantasy, supernatural, paranormal, horror, dystopian, post-apocalyptic.  I was so excited to see that the people of Armchair BEA also love one of my very favorite books The Sparrow.  Others in my top 10 have to be The Road, American Gods, and The Magicians.
Other things I love right now are:
  1. my public library which fuels the addiction I and my 11 year old have for books
  2. knitting which allows me to be productive and social at the same time
  3. the great genre shows on TV now, Dr. Who (the 10th Doctor is my doctor), Fringe, Supernatural.  I am also looking forward to Grimm and Once Upon A Time in the Fall.
  4. my family.  I have a great husband who works hard so I can stay at home and two amazing girls who make me work to be a better person every day.
  5. the interwebs which let me babble about books and keep in touch with my friends and RPG.

  1. Hello from a fellow knitter! I agree, it's an excellent way to be social yet productive. My husband likes to watch TV, which I can only do if I have my knitting. I love listening to audiobooks while knitting as well.

    I hope you have a lovely Armchair BEA!

  2. Hey there!

    Not a WV writer, but may as well be. Just over the Mason Dixon in Uniontown, PA but I spend a lot of time in Morgantown. 2 or 3 nights a week. I set my novel, THE DEVIL AND PRESTON BLACK there, in fact. If you're interested I'd be happy to send a file out to you.



  3. Darn it all! Just wrote this long comment and then hit the wrong button on my phone and lost it. Blah. Here I go again. 🙂

    I may not knit, but I love to crochet. Very close. 🙂

    I bought a plane ticket and flew to Grand Rapids over Easter to see The Decemberists. It was incredible. I need to write a post about it. Worth every penny. I would be excited if my daughters wanted to go. They're playing in Charlottesville in August. Depending on where you live in WV, that might not be too bad of a trip.

    Thanks so much for stopping by this morning. It was fun to see how much we are alike. 🙂

    Knitting is my tv thing too. I can't just watch tv becuase I feel like I need to be doing something else. I can listen to audio books becuase I am not that good yet. I am still at the muttering "knit, perl, pass over" stage.

    Enjoy Armchair BEA too.

    You're from up north. We head that way every fourth of July. I would love a copy of your file but be warned I am still trying to get used to reading without the solid weight of a book in my hand. 🙂

  6. Awesome! Well I'll find you on Facebook and send the link and code there.

    I understand the eBook thing. I still find myself handwriting every now and then.


  7. I have two voracious readers – a 12-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl. It's always a challenge to find enough books to satisfy them. Thank goodness for the public library!

    Glad to have found you via Armchair BEA!

  8. I am so glad to see you participating in Armchair BEA this week! Gotta say that I am also looking forward to Grimm this Fall. I haven't yet seen a preview for the other, but I'm going to google it and find one!!

    Chat with you again soon!! 🙂
