Armchair BEA a try this year, even though I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing. So we all will be finding out together. Well, I do know it does not involve an insanely expensive trip to NYC for the actual convention.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
My name is Sarah, but I will answer to sawcat as well. I live in Southern California. I've been blogging about books for a little over a year now, although I've had a blog over on Livejournal for several years now. I started this book blog after talking about it with some fellow Shelfari members who also have blogs.
What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
I just finished Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn and am listening to The Rose of Sebastopol by Katharine McMahon. But my favorite read so far this year has been Finnikin Of The Rock by Melina Marchetta.
Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
I work as an archaeologist. I am also very introverted and quiet. If I met you on the street, I would not be trying to chat you up. My movie and music collection rival my book collection, although my music collection is far more eclectic. I'm also more than slightly obsessive over Doctor Who since New Who arrived from across the pond. I have two twitter accounts. The one on the side is more bookish, while @sawcatsims is my primary one, with more fandom and sports related content, and GetGlue.
Where do you see your blog in five years?
Really, I have no idea. Hopefully I will not have completely ignored it by then. My involvement in hobbies goes in waves. Sometimes I'm all about one hobby and neglect the others for a while.
What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
Prince Edward Island. I loved the LM Montgomery novels that I read, and PEI always sounded so idyllic. I grew up in a major metropolitan area, so the grand open spaces aren't quite as easy to find, and many of our rivers have been concrete lined, so any natural body of water always get me.
