Armchair BEA 2011: Day 1

Armchair BEA 2011: Day 1
Hi all!! Waves!!
Today is the kick-off for Armchair BEA - an event for those who, for whatever reason, are not attending BEA this year.  For those of you who are stopping by the first time, sit down and pull up a chair and let me introduce myself.  Return visitor?  Why don't you take a seat as well and rest your weary feet.
Welcome to Reflection of a Bookaholic!  I'm Alexis Villery--a girl whose one true love happens to be books.  Everyone tends to call me Alexis because it is the short version of my real name, which no one calls me but my grandmother.
I have a degree in Marketing.  I am a former teacher (High School English at Davis High School) and currently a 3L in law school.  To balance all the madness, my husband encouraged me to develop a hobby that I could be passionate about so I started Reflections of a Bookaholic.  I'm coming around to my first wedding anniversary in about 3 weeks (whoo hoo!) and I'm interning full time at the District Attorney's office.
Anyways, I'm a fairly eclectic reader and reviewer but I will admit that I read very little YA.  I can be a rather moody reader, and right now I want to read happy endings, or rather, just not unhappy endings.  On my plate right now, I've got some historical fiction and a bit of YA (just a bit).
I'm not sure how I will Armchair BEA.  I will go with the flow and see how it works and hopefully jump with both feet in :)
