Feature: The Edmonton Book Bloggers’ Favourite Things — Laura from Reading In Bed

bloggers favourite things-01

I have a lot of favourite book bloggers out there, but sometimes it’s hard to get to know them just from reading posts. I thought it might be fun to have a brief “interview” of favourite things with all of my favourite bloggers – hopefully a way to get to know them a bit better!

Featuring LAURA from Reading In Bed

lauraTell me a bit about you and your blog:
I started reading my way through the 1,001 Books You Must Read Before You Die in 2007 and started blogging about it in 2011. These days, I still blog about classics, but also about comtemporary literary fiction with a little bit of YA, chick-lit, and even erotica thrown in. I love discovering new authors and covering the local book scene. I try not to take blogging too seriously, even when I’m reading serious books.

I’m also a married mom who works in marketing and enjoys alliteration.

Book and Blogging Favourites:

Favourite thing about blogging?
An excuse to write, and getting comments!
