Welcome!









I am Foxears
That's right, I am Foxears. I'm living in Sweden where I study to become an engineer. I don't know what I do in my sparetime, it usually disappears without any sign of ever existing. Though I like to sleep in the mornings, a lot, and I hate to go to bed in the evenings. So maybe I sleep away my mornings and walk around in a trance during nights while refusing to go to bed.

Feel free to send me a PM if you'd like to! I'd be happy to see that someone wants to talk to me :D

Me and Books
Reading was a huge part of my life when I was in my younger teens, but now I, unfortunally, lack the time to sit down and enjoy a book. My goal is to once again embrace the book nerd inside of me.

The Nerd Inside
When I turned eleven my parents gave me Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as a birthday present. Our teacher read it to us in school, so my parents asked if they should take the book back. I answered no, as I wanted to read in advance. And I did. Harry Potter was the book which made me read more for myself, and also later on the book which made me stop reading other books.

I loved the books of Harry Potter, and still do. Easily I fall into the nerdness of a serie. I have drooled over Harry, Sirius, Remus, and the latest and longest drooling object is Severus Snape. I have written fanfiction, made fanart, cried over dead characters and wished so hard that I ached that I would be able to go to Hogwarts.

To prove myself a worthy Harry Potter nerd I collect the second Harry Potter book (Chamber of Secrets) in all the languages I have ever known and/or studied. I am the owner of:

* Harry Potter och hemligheternas kammare (Swedish)
* Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (English)
* Harry Potter y la cámara secreta (Spanish)
* Harrius Potter et Camera Secretorum (Latin)
* 哈利波特与密室 (Chinese simplified)
* Harry Potter og de vises stein (Norwegian, Book 1)
* ハリー・ポッターと賢者の石 (Japanese, Book 1)


I thought it was just Harry Potter who would make me feel like this, but as I more or less stopped reading other things than Harry Potter fanfiction at the age of 16 I think I never tried anything else. Then I found bookcrossing and my will to read awakened. While at my parents house I borrowed my sisters Twilight book, and soon I was stuck with a new series and a new fandom to bury my self in.

I'm probably insane, but I have always been that kind of reader who is never totally satisfied. When I finish a book I always wonder "What happens next?" or "I would like to know the story of [insert minor character]" or "What if [insert crazy idea]?". I'm built for the fandom world, and I'm awefully happy for all the good fanfictions out there.

.
Permanent Collection
At the moment my permanent collection is empty, but I have an idea for the books I'll put in permanent collection. It is, of course, books I'd like to keep, but most of the books in the permanent collection I would be willing to lend out to fellow bookcrossers if they ask nicely and I can trust that they'll send them back again.

I have created a seperate wishlist for books I'd like to keep in my permanent collection, just so people will know that my main goal not is to pass them on but to keep them (as I know many bookcrossers want their books to move a lot). You can find this wishlist here.


Thanks for stopping by!
