Armchair BEA: Who I Am and How do I Armchair?

Since I can't go to the BEA 2011, I found something just as good!  The Armchair BEA!  There's lots of fun to be had all week, so check it out.

For Monday, I'm supposed to tell more about who I am.  Well, I'm Maria and I'm an Army brat.  I have lived a few places around the U.S. and Germany and ended up in NC for now.  I'm an Office Manager and Technical Editor for an environmental consulting company.  Three cats own me, but there are five cats in my house, so the other two lay claim on me as well, usually at dinner time.  If I'm not reading, I'm computering, watching tv/movies, crocheting, or baking.

 I've been reading since I was around four.  Usually my mother had to tear the book out of my hand to get me to do anything else.  I read almost all genres, I love any good story.  About a month ago, I was surfing the net looking for a new book recommendation when I ran into this world of book review blogging.  I was hooked!  So To Read, Perchance to Dream was born!

I hope to make a lot of new friends with Armchair BEA and share a lot of review and blogging tips.
