Welcome to Rundpinne, my name is Jennifer and I am a book reviewer, book blogger, and an unapologetic bibliophile. Normally my reading is laid back and at a nice even clip, however this week I have a school event, award ceremony or banquet scheduled every night of the week. But enough about the stressed out me, normally I am fairly laid back, easy going and I do not write too much about myself. I am a mum to 3 older teenagers, about to celebrate my 20th Wedding Anniversary (this week!) and I am owned by an extremely pampers cat. As for books I am fairly eclectic in my reading. My all time favourite genre is Russian Literature, sadly I do not get to review too much from the Russian Literature field. I am quite fond of Scandinavian mysteries/police procedural, usually I am too impatient to wait for them to be translated. When not reading Russian Literature or Scandinavian Mysteries I gravitate toward memoirs and historical fiction.
The second part of the welcome post was to be about how I plan to participate in Armchair BEA 2011 and what I hope to get out of the week.
When I first learned of Armchair BEA I felt I would be far less structured and go with the flow, that was until I looked at my calendar and received a dose of reality. My only reading goals are to actually reads the books I promised to review this week, any extras are an added bonus. Where will I be reading? Anywhere I can.
What do I hope to get out of the week? I am looking forward to meeting book bloggers and reviewers, to be exposed to new books, ideas, genres, and have an all around jolly good time.
To all of you stopping by for the first time, welcome to my little book review blog in the wide arena that is the blogosphere, for those of you who have been here before, I am so very glad you chose to stop by. Welcome everyone, do have a look around and if there is time, please leave me a comment so I can come visit you.
