Hello BEA people!

And also anyone else visiting my blog during May 23-27! I’m at BEA right now, and as I didn’t bring my computer with me I’m not planning on making any new blog posts until I get back. I thought instead I’d make a sort of introduction post, to welcome anyone who looked me up after meeting me somewhere and to also just say hello.

Hello! I’m Anastasia, and I run this here book blog. I’m 23 years old, recently graduated from college and currently floating adrift on the river of life. BEA is my first time traveling somewhere solo, which is both exciting and terrifying. I’m fond of long road trips, fluffy cats, and cutesy toys. And books, of course.

I created Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog in November 2008 to talk about books I read with other people who loved books, too. I’d like to think it’s a pretty awesome blog. I read lots of different genres but have a special fondness for fantasy and travel narratives. I love talking about ebooks and social media and other exciting things like that.

For more info about myself and Birdbrain(ed), check out the About Me page, where I talk about why I started Birdbrain(ed) and how I was a bookworm from the tender age of 3-ish.

You may also be interested in checking out some of the posts I’ve got on here. I can’t really recommend the early stuff– they’re not bad posts but, like naked baby photos, I kind of want to hide in a cave every time someone looks at them. Instead, why not check out some of my more recent posts? I think they’ll give you a good idea of what happens around here:

(To be fair, these two posts are my most popular, despite being written years ago: The iPod Touch as an ebook reader and 10 YA Fantasy Novels Everyone Should Read (Yes, Even You). I’m planning an update on that last one, by the way.)

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you come visit me again once I’ve returned from BEA and start regularly posting. I’ll have lots of interesting things to say about NYC and BEA, no doubt, and I’d love it if you’d say hello!


FYI: I’ve enabled Twitter messages to be sent to my phone, so if you wanna send me something & don’t know my phone number, direct message me on Twitter and I’ll get it! I can also message you back via phone. 😀 Nifty, huh? (Although I think this only works if I’m following you. So that’s a snag.)
