A "welcome back" interview!


Now, I, Alysa knew the answers to these questions already.  But I asked them of Laura anyway, so that we could have a little re-introduction to her.  Welcome back, Laura!

Alysa: How did you get to be a part of this blog?

Laura: Well, going on three years ago, a friend of mine who was an avid blogger confessed to me that she was thinking about separating her "book blogging" from her personal blogging by starting a book review blog.  Being a voracious reader myself, I enthusiastically encouraged my friend to start the book blog, especially since she was shortly going to move away, and I would sorely miss our book chats.  When she asked me if I would join her in her book-blogging ventures so there would be two authors and more books reviewed on the blog, I was happy to join the fun.  Unfortunately, I haven't been a very consistent book-blogging partner, but I've been part of Everead since it was born.

Alysa:. Where have you been for the last while?

Laura: For the last year or so, I've taken a rather extended leave of absence from Everead, as I've been wildly busy with several life events: the last (and very strenuous) year of my Secondary English Teaching degree, my year-long courtship and my wedding that came at the end of that, moving (a few times), working (a lot), and other such joys.  Honestly, I look back at the last year and a half and realize that I've probably read less than a hundred books in that whole time (if you don't count books I read for school).  A travesty, I know.  Soon to be remedied.

Alysa:  What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Laura: You know, I can honestly say that I'm not a huge ice cream person.  I don't mind ice cream, and every once in a while the mood strikes, but really I can do without ice cream.  I know this is quite shocking to many of you, but it's true.  If I were to pick a favorite flavor, it would be one of those ones with lots of fudge swirls and peanut butter cups and caramel and chocolate-covered nuts and brownie bites and cookie dough and candy bits, etc., and then naturally there would be plenty of hot fudge on top.  The end.

  1. That's okay, I'll take all the ice cream you don't want. :)
