Today I am featuring Page from As the Page Turns.
Tell us something about yourself
My name is Page and I live in NC with my husband and two cats. I work in a public library in the youth services department. I love reading and meeting new people.
What was your favourite book as a child or young adult, and why?
I loved the Little House Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder because even in the harshest conditions she always found a positive thing and never let it get her down.
Why do you love to read?
I love to read to learn about new cultures or to explore a world that I’ve never seen. It’s the one way to travel that doesn’t cost a cent.
How do you choose your books?
I’ve never really thought about it, I sometimes choose it by the cover, the description on the book jacket and sometimes just the title.
What are you currently reading and what's been the best book you have read in the last 6 months?
I’m currently reading several ARC’s I’ve received: Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten and The Art of Comforting by Val Walker. The best book I’ve read is Kitchen Chinese by Ann Mah. I reviewed the book on my blog.
When and why did you start your blog?
I started my blog in April 2010 after reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Ruben. One of the things she talks about is learning a new skill and I also recommend books to people in my library so it was an extension of something I do every day.
How did you choose your blog's name?
I like puns and wanted a pun like title that uses my name.
What do you love about book blogging?
Meeting great lovers of books and having fun.
What tips do you have to offer to other book bloggers?
Since I’m fairly new to blogging the only advice I can give the same as some who’ve been doing it awhile-
Be Yourself and have fun.
