This year I am participating in the Armchair BEA! I was rather devastated by not going to BEA this year as I had a blast last year, but I must say that the opportunity to take part in the Armchair version has been healing my hurt. :) Today is introductions day, so...
About eclectic / eccentric
eclectic / eccentric is a blog which primarily features book reviews written by someone who sees value in both Hamlet and Harry Potter. Classic lit, graphic novels, SFF, YAL, plays, films, it's all here. Books reviewed on the blog are from my personal collection (which is embarrassingly large), the library, and from authors and publishing houses.
eclectic / eccentric came about because I love stories and sharing those stories with others. My job feeds my passion as I am lucky enough to be a college professor teaching composition, literature, and film courses. For more about me and information on how to contact me, visit the About page.
If you are interested in seeing what books I've written on in the past, I have two possibilities for searching. You can find reviews by author or by title.
If you like what you see, you might consider subscribing to eclectic / eccentric by clicking on the appropriate drop down menu on the far right side-bar. You can also follow through Blogger by clicking on the Follow button in the right-hand sidebar.

My Armchair BEA Plans
Today is not a good day. Today I have jury duty. Keep your fingers crossed that all I have to do is sit there and read. Even the thought of being called to serve on a jury gets me all jittery!
Tuesday is Giveaway Day, so be sure to stop back by.....................
On Wednesday, we will be posting interviews of other participants. I was lucky enough to be assigned Ashley from Book Labyrinth and had a great time pestering her with questions.
Thursday is all about Nurturing Relationships with bloggers, publishing companies, authors, bookstores, etc. We will also be having a Twitter party
Finally, on Friday, we will be posting about blogging: tips and tricks, ins and outs, ups and downs.
Thanks for stopping by eclectic / eccentric, and I look forward to getting to know you!
