An Introduction to You and Your Blog
What’s your name? Where in the world are you blogging from?
My name is April and I’m blogging from the US!
Tell us your history with reading. Were you always a reader? Were you a reluctant reader? Was there a book that convinced you to become a reader?
I am going to say I was a reluctant reader when I was in school. The book that really got me to like reading was:
How did you get involved in the online book community?
Andi from Andi’s ABC’s. She introduced me to some great authors to read and through her I met some great bloggers.
How did you choose your primary platform (blog, Instagram, YouTube, etc)? How did you come up with your blog name?
I had done a couple of other non book related blogs on WordPress, so it was easy to decide to put my book blog there. Actually my younger sister helped me. She said it should be bookish so I decided Between the Pages was a fun name, since it kind of works with reading.
What’s your favorite thing about the online book community?
The way that they support each other. Whether you’r blog has a thousand visitors or 5, they support you no matter what. And they are some of the nicest, friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
What sort of posts can readers expect from you?
Hopefully some fun, some informative, and some that recommend a book you may not have read yet.
What book genres do you talk about most?
I try and do reviews for every book I read, be it romance, contemporary, dystopian or fantasy. I have to say that lately Contemp and Fantasy seem to be what I’m reading, and while I’m short on reviews at the moment I have a ton planned for the next few weeks.
