Design by Amber of Shelf NotesSo, welcome to my blog! If you are a new visitor, thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone enjoys what they see and comes back!
Anyway, for our first day of Armchair BEA, we have our introductions! The directions are to choose at least 5...
I was going to make a video, instead of typing out my responses, but then I didn't feel like it....
My "I don't want to make a video" face
My name is Amanda, I'm an elementary English as a Second Language teacher. I love my students and sharing the love of reading with them! I've been blogging for, I think, 3 years this past January, but I can't really remember. I got into blogging because I wanted to stay up to date on great books for my students. I am blogging from Harrisonburg, Virginia, which is located in the Shenandoah Valley, about 2 hours south west of Washington, DC.
2. Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online.
My blog is very eclectic---it started out as a book blog, but has evolved into stuff I use in my classroom, stuff about my dogs, about my subscription boxes---it represents how I've evolved in the past 3ish years.
Facebook: I don't have my blog connected to Facebook. I think that may be something I need to do this week.
Instagram: akfurman (be warned, it's filled with pictures of my dog, Luna)
3. What genre do you read the most? I love to read because ___________________ .
Obviously, I love anything from picture books to YA, but my favorite type, is fantasy. I've gone through phases: historical fiction, crime, romance, and now fantasy. I like being transported to different worlds and seeing how they would work.
4. What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like? (Pinterest encouraged!)
5. Share your favorite book or reading related quote.
6. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what 3 books would you bring? Why? What 3 non-book items would you bring? Why?
I'd bring Harry Potter #7, Game of Thrones #1 and a survival guide. I'd bring HP7 and GOT1 because they awesome, but also super long. I'd bring a survival guide, because DUH! I have no clue how to survive in the wild!
As my non-book items, I'd bring a 2 gallon tub of sunblock, duct tape (I saw that Mythbusters, you can make a ton of survival stuff out of duct tape), and a hunting knife. The name of the game is survival, and not getting sunburned.
Hope you enjoyed my intro! Have a great Armchair BEA!
