BookExpo America (BEA) is going on right now. For those of us who could not attend, there is Armchair BEA! For today's exercise, we are to answer questions about ourselves to facilitate a meet and greet! Please see below:
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? I am Elizabeth (Libby) Myers Rodriguez. I am an Urban Planner with a Masters from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I do freelance planning studies as my 'day job!' I have been blogging for about 6 or 7 months...Why?...hmmm...because its there(?)
What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012? Currently, I am reading both a Wodehouse compendium and Les Mis - bopping back and forth, which I like to do...
If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why? Salman Rushdie. He and Amy Tan are my two favorite (living) authors.
What literary location would you most like to visit? Why? The Marvelous Land of Oz - LOL! As a kid, I read all the Oz books and was just completely obsessed. So, if someone arranges a trip, yea, I'm in!
What is your favorite part about the book blogging community? Is there anything that you would like to see change in the coming years? I love the way that everyone comes up with challenges, memes, read-alongs, etc! I don't really want it to change, but I bet we will all keep coming up with new things and there will be exciting changes that I have not even thought of!
