Laura from Little Read Riding Hood

Please welcome Laura, who blogs at Little Read Riding Hood. Laura's blog is know for fantasy, paranormal, and UF reviews.

Questions:


How long have you been blogging?

I've been blogging since March of 2012. It is the longest running hobby I've ever had (other than reading of course!)




What's your earliest memory of reading?

I don't know about my earliest memory, but I do know that when I was younger my parents would have to ground me from reading because that was the only thing they could take away that would really hurt. "Go to your room!" "No TV!" Etc, and my answer was "Ok, I'll read!" My mom still feels bad about that!




Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?

Oh hell no! My books are pristine. I can barely tolerate a bent spine. Which is why ebooks have been so handy to me :-)




To DNF or not to DNF?

Honestly, for a long time I was anti DNF. But the longer I blog and the more I read, I have realized there are too many good books out there. Why should I have to force myself to pick up the book I am currently reading? If I am not excited about it by about 40%, or at least even interested in the story, then I DNF. I will say on the blog and goodreads why I DNF'ed, but I don't give it a star rating.




What is your reading personality? (via quiz at http://www.bookbrowse.com/quiz/)

"Your responses showed you fitting equally into all four reading personalities:

Involved Reader: You don't just love to read books, you love to read about books. For you, half the fun of reading is the thrill of the chase - discovering new books and authors, and discussing your finds with others.
Exacting Reader: You love books but you rarely have as much time to read as you'd like - so you're very particular about the books you choose.
Serial Reader: Once you discover a favorite writer you tend to stick with him/her through thick and thin.
Eclectic Reader: You read for entertainment but also to expand your mind. You're open to new ideas and new writers, and are not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors. "

  3. First of all, I love your name and design!!! Secondly, I feel so bad that you were grounded from reading!! I was often sent to my room for getting into trouble, but it never bothered me because that's where my books were! Guess the parents never thought to take away the books (thankfully)!!
