armchair book expo intro, unraveled, & summer book bingo
posted by soe 12:46 am

Today is the first day of Armchair Book Expo (formerly Armchair BEA) and I’m excited to participate once again. I’ll be sharing book-related topics here and on Twitter over the next few days.

Read on to learn a little about me and my bookish life:

I am sprite. I live in Washington, D.C., with my partner Rudi and our three cats.

My favorite authors include Jasper Fforde, J.K. Rowling, Rainbow Rowell, Jane Austen, Barbara Kingsolver, Elizabeth Bishop, Brian Selznick, Madeleine L’Engle, and Kwame Alexander.

End of May Unraveling

Currently, I’m reading Finding Wonders: Three Girls Who Changed Science by Jeannine Atkins. Since I expect to finish it by the weekend (and since I finished two of the other books I’ve been reading), I’m starting a bunch of new things: Frances Hardinge’s The Lie Tree (I loved her Fly by Night back when it first came out), Zoraida Córdova’s Labyrinth Lost (a Cybils shortlisted title recommended by a local bookworm), and Kids of Appetite (which a book club member liked) by David Arnold (an author my parents liked). Also, I’m listening to Taraji P. Henson’s Around the Way Girl. On my needles is this Points of Light baby blanket, which I really need to get a move on, since our friends’ baby is due in just over a month. (Want to see others’ book-knitting combos? Visit As Kat Knits on Wednesdays for her Unraveled link-up.)

My summer plans include baseball games, Friday night concerts by the river, and lots of reading. I’ve got tickets to see Roxane Gay next month, my library’s summer reading program kicks off tomorrow, and Book Bingo began over the weekend. (It’s not too late to join in!)

Here’s my card:
