Armchair BEA: Day Three: Networking... In Real Life?!





Do you know how hard it is for me trying to think of a positive, "real life" experience had by books that I have had? No, probably not, but let me tell you it's tragic.
I started reading books, because I kept getting into mischief as a child and my mom would ground me to my room. I had nothing in it but books, so what was a girl to do? It became my outlet, and before you know it, I had read half of Stephen King's books by age 10. Yes, I was that mischievous to read that much. I was even grounded for an entire summer vacation in my room.
Now I read because I still love it so. It's still an outlet, and still a thing I do to take me away, but more than that I enjoy the fantasy behind all stories. Even the "real" ones. 
I guess my best experiences with anything books is really blogging. When I first started out, there was a few people that didn't hesitate to help me out when I asked them stuff. Dina @ Just Another New Blog was one of the first blogs I started reading and she was gracious in information too. I am forever thankful for the things I learned from her.
I have made many other friendships with bloggers, and sorry if I don't name drop, but you should know who you are. You are the ones I visit on a regular.... I think you are all the bees knees! (If you read this, and think, "Yeah, she's on my blog a lot!", then this is definitely directed at you!)

Plus I have been passed the torch of The Friday 56 from Tonya @ Storytime With Tonya. She discontinued the blog or I would link to it. It's been 77 weeks and I am stoked at the 20+ people we usually get every week! Thanks guys, you rock!
So now the big question that burns in your minds... what's my first pick for a book if I ever needed only one? Easy! The Bible. Which I read mine everyday.
And with that I bid you happy reading and hope to see you for next Friday's 56!

  1. I would also read when I was grounded - but I'd get grounded on purpose because my mom would always push me to go outside and wouldn't let me take my books outside and I wanted to have to stay in my room! =)

  3. I read so much that my mom kept telling me I'd ruin my eyesight. Well, my eyesight is now terrible so maybe she was right but it was totally worth it!

  4. Lol, my dad wanted to ground me from my books once! He didn't want to move them though, so fail \o/

    I love your story! Maybe it was good you were grounded so much, so you had the time to discover reading and how awesome it it. ;)

    My bookish real life story!

  5. I think you are brave to take on a meme. I would love to do something like that but do not have the necessary technical skills.

  6. What did you do to get grounded all summer? :o0. I would love to be sent to my room to read now! I read my Bible every day too.

  7. I enjoyed reading as a child because I was more advanced than my peers. It made it hard to get along with kids who were older than me, but not quite as bright. Not to mention, as the advanced little sister of another advanced daughter, I listened to my sister read Shakespeare to me instead of picture books. A quirky literary beginning. :) Tattooed Books

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
