As you probably know, I've been writing In Bed With Books for three years as of yesterday.
Here are a few secrets:
- I am alternately brilliant and bad at naming things. "Top Ten Books to Read in Bed" was the title of an article I wrote for a college paper right before starting this blog. Thus, "In Bed With Books." The name also refers to the fact that I prefer to read in bed. I'll read in a chair, but I find beds more comfortable. (If only I had a chaise longue. . . )
- "Liviania" was an alias I had already been using for two years. Considering I discard aliases about every three years, I really wish I had made up a new one for the blog. It makes me a bit twitchy that I'm stuck with one semi-permanent fake identity.
- My Twitter handle is @wearedevilcow because I originally intended to use if for real-life friends as well as the blog. I quickly realized what a dumb idea that was. Thus, I only use it for the blog but the name only has meaning to my friends.
Now onto the meaning of the title of this post!
There are a few more contests to come this month, and I'm currently plotting the final ones. Any authors who would like me to include some of their swag (bookmarks, posters, etc.) in the packages should contact me at inbedwithbooks AT yahoo DOT com.
