Introducing the 2014 Armchair BEA Team & NEW Design!

Last month, we put out a call for help in changing up and expanding our Armchair BEA team.  We received a wonderful response and we are now very excited to announce and introduce the *NEW* 2014 Armchair BEA team!

Before I make the new team announcement, however, I want to make sure you are all reading directly from the website.  I ask this because we also have a *NEW* design courtesy of Amber from Shelf Notes.  Go on, click on over, and check out this new beauty!!

Everyone is already hard at work.  Over the next few weeks, you can expect posts to increase here with more information on our 2014 event, including sponsorship information, registration, a call for commenting volunteers/cheerleaders, and much, much more.  You do not want to miss out!

Armchair BEA can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  We can also always be reached via email at armchairbea AT gmail DOT com.

We close with our NEW team.  Please give them all a warm welcome!
