Howdy y’all! I’m Berls from Fantasy is More Fun. I started blogging in July 2013 and cooked up the seedling idea that eventually became COYER in August 2013. I contacted Michelle and the rest is history (read the details here).
I’ve loved reading as long as I can remember knowing how and will always pick a book over watching tv, a movie, or sometimes even spending time with friends/family. I caught the blogging bug when I started Fantasy is More Fun in July 2013 and it takes up most of my spare time (that’s not spent reading). I’m a kindergarten teacher during the day and I spend my spare time reading, blogging, or with my family. I’m usually spending time with my boyfriend/husband of 11 years, my stepson Franky, my mom (who lives with us) or my brother. My dog, Buffy (yes, she’s named for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite show) is always by my side, whether I’m reading, blogging, or just hanging – and she’ll probably show up in a few blog posts.
I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t reading at least one book and I’ve often longed for people that I could share that joy with. That’s what I love so much about blogging and communities like Goodreads – I finally found people who love to read as much as I do and who enjoy the kind of books I do! That’s what COYER is all about for me. We have a fantastic community of readers who just love supporting each other and talking books. I also love coming up with fun ways to complicate and twist up the challenge… After all what fun would it be if we kept it simple LOL 😉
