BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde



Welcome to Bea's Book Nook. 

You'll find mostly book reviews here, but also excerpts, interviews, author guest posts, and giveaways. The genres I review are fairly broad; if it appeals to me, I'll review it.  don't do business or self help books but almost anything else is fair game. If you have a topic you want to see here drop me a line. 

I love to read. I will read any time, anywhere, almost anything e.g. laundry detergent bottle, lost newspaper, whatever is at hand. I enjoy fantasy of most varieties, some sci fi, romances, mysteries, childrens, YA, the occasional craft book, anything to do with early childhood and development, and early childhood education. I do NOT review cancer stories or books where cancer is central to the story. When I'm not reading, I play with my cat, make soaps, watch my streaming channels, color, and try to breathe. I'm a toddler teacher, an author assistant, and a freelance copy editor & proofreader.

I've contributed to BookTrib and the now defunct Romance at Random

Goof: Goof was my cat for over 10 years and the inspiration for the cat icons on the blog. He liked to sleep on my books and electronics, and always thought I paid too much attention to them and not enough to him. His contributions to the blog included looking handsome and sometimes starring in Cat Thursday posts.

Claude: Claude is my other, now only, cat; the foster cat who never left, much to Goof's dismay. He also thinks Bea pays too much attention to books and not enough to him. He likes to sit in front of my Kindle as I read and wave his tail in my face.
