ArmchairBEA: Beyond the Books & Beyond the Blog

Here it is day 3 @ ArmchairBEA already…time flies when your having fun.

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?

I have always just read a novel up until this year. It has been a year of first for me when it comes to books. I was always a physical book reader…I went kicking and screaming into the world of ebooks. Now I don’t know what I would do without them.

This year I have found the world of audiobooks and graphic novels. I didn’t think I would love audiobooks, but now I don’t know what I would do if they were not in my life. I can read while I am cleaning, exercising, and showering.

Graphic novels are a nice break between novels for me. Still giving me a wonderful story, with the added beautiful art.


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?

I don’t have any life for books outside the internet. My friends don’t read like me or want to talk about what they read. So everything bookish I turn to all the wonderful people that I am meeting on the internet. I do use Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads and Booktube outside my blog to talk about books.

  1. I have never read any graphic novels or listened to an audio book,always assumed that I would loose concentration with audios.I mean,you have to multitask as you listen,right?Glad they are working out for you though.Ebooks are my kind of books though I still like hard copies.Great post 🙂


  2. When I started blogging, I didn’t really have much of a bookish life outside of the internet, and a huge part of my reason for starting my blog was because my friends were like “You need an outlet for your bookish thoughts, because you keep talking about books at the bar.” But weirdly as we all got older everyone started reading more, and now we have a book club. 🙂

  3. I started using audiobooks to get my daily dose of stories on my way to and from work. You can’t really drive and read, can you? haha! I find them very handy, especially as I am not an English native speaker. I use them to work on my accent. Also, I love listening to stories when taking a bath but I am always afraid of dropping the book into the water. Audiobooks are safer!
