Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2016 - Introduce Yourself!




Hello hello! It's Book Blogger Appreciation Week!

Thanks to The Estella Society for the reboot! The original petered out right around the time I started blogging and I remember thinking, "ah crap" because it sounded so stinking fun. I'm delighted to be able to participate this time around.

It's day one and we've been instructed to introduce ourselves by sharing 5 books that represent us in some way. Here are 5 books that say a little bit about little ol' me:

Because I love books (obviously) : 



Because I work at a bookstore 
(and people definitely say weird things) :



(are you sensing a theme?) :


Because I love to cook 
(Pioneer Woman recipes are the best) :


Because I'm obsessed with Star Trek 
(seriously, I can't stop) :

There's more to me, of course. I'm a mom of 3, wife, homeschool teacher, football fan, Bloody Mary aficionado, LGBT ally, and crazy cat lady. There's more to everyone! We're complex creatures after all. These books describe me, in a tiny nutshell kind of way.


Thanks for reading! You can always catch up with me on Twitter, Instagram, and/or Facebook.

Now, I want to hear about you! Are you participating in BBAW? Let me know!

  2. That was cute! And yes we are all complex which makes it hard to pick 5, doesn't it?

  7. This was perfect! And I love hearing about that Weird Things Customers Say...bet that would apply to libraries too. Oh my word. I could write a book about that. LOL

  8. You did a brilliant job of nutshell-ing the mystique that is Jen. Love it!

  14. Love The Pioneer Woman! And AJ Fikry...especially because he made me not feel bad about not wanting to read Moby Dick, ever.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Just finished my BBAW post! I love the idea of introducing yourself through books!

  16. The storied life of A.J.Fikry - I have heard so much. Can't wait to get to it soon. Love your list!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love Pioneer Woman! I have her cookbooks too, one of the few I can read cover to cover before making anything =)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love your list! I've been hoping to make time for AJ Fikry for quite a while now. And I neeeeed the Pioneer Woman cookbook. Confession: I adore her recipes, but I find her website so annoyingly picture-heavy that I stopped visiting it regularly. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Awesome sum up of your life in books! I love it! I need to read that Storified Life book so bad! :) And yes I am participating in BBAW and it's bringing back all sorts of lovely memories from blogging days of yore! :)

  20. Love it! I want to be a Pioneer Woman devotee -- I'm a terrible cook, but her recipes seem generally unintimidating. If a (single) person were going to buy just one of her cookbooks, which one would you recommend?

  23. I helped set up a LFL for my work, I was super excited. And I didn't know about Star Trek, so yay introductions!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I enjoyed getting to know you through those titles! Great selection and they really seem to fit.

    ReplyDelete
  25. cool list! I loved your #1 and plan to read #2, as I worked for 6 years in a library myself. My 5 titles are: http://wordsandpeace.com/2016/02/15/bbaw-2016-day-1/

  26. Oh my gosh. The Star Trek Encyclopedia is by far the best book I've seen on these lists so far. Hilarious (and awesome). :P

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love everything on your list even though I've only actually read one of them (AJ Fikry). Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Definitely I want to read AJ Fikry this year. There are so many great books about books! I can just imagine The Weird Things Customers Say in Book Shops. I should have put a cookbook on my list - that was a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is a great list! I love AJ Fikry.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh I have to read that one about things customers say in a bookstore! I can only imagine based on what I've overheard.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great list! Now that I work at a bookstore, I should really pick up Weird Things Customers Say.
    P.S. I'm obsessed with Star Trek too. I went to Leonard Nimoy's last Star Trek convention appearance and met Brent Spiner & Jonathan Frakes. I only cried twice.
