I've had a library card since I was 4 although I learned to read when I was 7 and half years old. But I've never stopped once I learnt! When I was younger I had my nose deep in a book all the time: I could read several books a day, 24/7. Nowadays there is this thing called work which keeps me from reading whenever I like.
My favourite genres are fantasy, science fiction, mystery, thrillers, historical stories, sagas, comics, biographs... well, I read almost anything if it's well-written. :) Just to give you some names: J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Jasper Fforde, John Irving, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, Calvin&Hobbes... Lately I've been interested in vampire stories and other supernatural stuff. I'm not interested in romance or religious books.
I read in English and Finnish. If you have a book in easy/simple German, Swedish or Norwegian, I could give it a try. And if you happen to have a children's book with/about frogs in ANY language, I'd love to receive it! But beware: I probably want to leave it as PC if I don't have it yet. I also like frogs & toads in postcards and other stuff. I drink lots and lots of tea, and enjoy chocolate every now and then. Short no-no: I'm sensitive to smells, so please don't send me anything perfumed or scented. Thanks.
I like to read series in right order which is why there is usually just one volume (the one I'd like to read next, so I don't forget which one) on my wishlist . But if you have later volumes of the same series, I'd be happy to get those too. Eventually I'll get to read them. :) Toivelistallani on useimmat kirjat englanniksi, mutta suomennoksetkin kyllä kelpaavat, jollei toisin mainita. :)
