Saturday Spotlight - Ashley's Library

Today I have a fun blogger who has a dream I think we all wish at some point - to open her own bookstore! Her blog is going great so far and I think she's still catching up from Dewey's Readathon (as am I!). Check out Ashley below.

Name: Ashley
Nickname and/or blog name: Ashley's Library

Tell me a bit about yourself.
I'm 19 and I spend a large portion of my day reading. I am a student and I want to open a bookstore when I graduate. I'm a bit introverted and books have always been a large part of my life, since I learned to read. Another goal of mine is to write novels.

When and why did you start your blog?
I started my blog a little more than a year ago because I wanted to talk about books. I had been reading book blogs for a while and decided I wanted to participate!

What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?
I mainly write book reviews but I also have giveaways. I want to start talking about other book-related news but I need to catch up on reviews first!

What are some of your favorite genres and/or books currently?
I read both fiction and non-fiction. As far as fiction goes, I like romance, young adult, paranormal, and I'll really give any genre a chance. The non-fiction books that appeal to me are typically those relating to human behavior.

How do you find out about the books you read?
Book blogs typically point me in the right direction. I also pay attention to the most popular books and whatever catches my eye at the bookstore.

Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?
I would say that participation is a great way to learn about other bloggers. Join in on challenges and other book blogging related activities.

Thank you Ashley for sharing more about yourself and your blog! Make sure to check out her blog.

  1. Great interview, I will definitely be checking out her blog

  2. Nice!! what a great dream she have.. btw, this interview...i'm quite enjoying this...=)

  3. Owning your own bookstore use to be one of my fantasies too. I even think about it as a great way to do something after retirement. Sadly, though I think most small bookstores have gone the way of the mega bookstores (like in the movie You Got Mail).

    As always I love your spotlights because I get a chance to visit new blogger.

  4. Great questions and answers! It's not everyday you find a book blogger who likes to read non-fiction regarding human behavior.


Leave some love!
