Welcome to Armchair BEA! This is the seventh annual Armchair BEA, and this is EFC’s third year participating! We are so excited to take part again this year!
Day 3: Beyond the Books and Blog
Here on Day 3, we are moving our focus beyond the traditional format of the media we consume and create!
Beyond the traditional form of the novel, what are your favorite alternative forms (graphic novels, audiobooks, webcomics, etc)? Do you have any favorite works within these alternate forms? How do you think the changing format affects the reading experience?
Our secondary topic, beyond the blog could focus on the ways you engage in talking about books outside of your blog. Do you participate in book clubs, take classes, meticulously maintain your Goodreads profile? Let the world know!
Beyond books and blog. Wow! What a topic!! Looking at the first question, I can honestly say that I do not listen to audiobooks. I’ve tried. I really have, but I can’t seem to stay focused on the story. My mind wanders too much. I even tried to listen while painting, and I found painting my bathroom more interesting. I have read one graphic novel. In fact, I won it last year during Armchair BEA. It was Honor Girl by Maggie Thrash. (You can check out my review here.) I would like to try more graphic novels.
Beyond the blog is a bit easier to answer. I have been a member of a few book clubs. I am currently in my neighborhood’s book club. We have a lot of fun, and I really enjoy talking about books and catching up with my neighbors. The thing I like the most about book clubs is that I often read books that I wouldn’t normally choose. I read a lot of different genres, but it is always great to dive into a book that you may not pick for yourself.
