As a little child I did read a book a day. I loved to be in my own world of fiction and one of my favourits was: The Minpins by Roald Dahl.Also the books of the dutch writer Paul Biegel were read and re-read many times. The small captain is in my opinion the best childbook ever written.
Now I read almost everything I'm able to. I love to discover books and authors I didn't know.
I'm not taking part in bookrings, even if the book is on my wishlist, because I don't like timelimits. Reading has to be fun and not feel like work.
