I thought it'd be fun to do a little book survey and read everyone's answers. If no one likes it, that's ok too, thought I'd give it a try . I'm sure the answers to some of these questions may be found in other topics, so I understand if you can't be bothered with some of the questions etc. Some of those topics haven't been posted in for several years and I wasn't sure about resurrecting each one just to post my own answers in it etc. The Past When did you start to love reading?

The Forum When did you join this forum? How did you find this forum? Here's mine: The Past When did you start to love reading? When I was about 9 years old we had to go to the school library and borrow books there, to read in the reading time in class. Ever since, I've loved books. What books did you love as a child (either read to or to read yourself)? To be read to, a book called Monkey. I don't remember who wrote it. To read myself, I loved the Babysitter's Club books by Ann M. Martin. Unfortunately only half of them were translated into Dutch. I also loved many of R. L. Stine's horror books and Thea Beckman's books. There are many more but I think these would have to be my favourites. Childhood memories of reading (if you have them)? I used to sit in my room a lot, after school, and read book after book after book. We had to go to two libraries because I didn't have enough to read for a week, otherwise. Did you read books for school? In primary school we got to pick books ourselves. For secondary school / high school, we had to read a number of novels picked by teachers as well as choose some ourselves, as long as it was considered literature from the appropriate country. I read quite some great books and I also read some not so great books. Favourites Favourite book: Couldn't choose. Favourite author: Hmm, there are so many good authors! Favourite genre(s): Fantasy, science-fiction, contemporary fiction, chick-lit, literature. Your Collection Do you own an e-reader? I've ordered one but it hasn't arrived yet. So 'yes', but I haven't actually held it in my hands yet. Ebooks or physical books (or both)? So far, physical books, but lately I've become less opposed of e-readers and thought it might be useful for when I travel. Physical books for now, but this may change a bit in the future. Hardcover or paperback (or both)? Paperback. New books or used books (or both)? New unless it's not available or very cheap to buy used books (where I live there aren't many charity shops or easy places to buy used books for cheap). I prefer my books to be in a good condition and I help pay the author(s). Big books or small books (or both)? I love long books but I also read smaller books now and then. What language are most of your books written in? English mainly. Favourite book shop(s): In terms of where I buy, it's mostly online (mainly Amazon). In terms of an actual book shop, to look inside, I like Waterstone's, The Works, Bruna, Selexyz. Do you buy a lot of books? Yes. Do you spend a lot of money on books? Probably yes. Amount of owned books: 1000+ adult books. Children's books, 300-500. Amount of books read: Since 18+, about 600. In total, probably over 2000 I estimate. Amount of books TBR: Too many . Amount of books wishlisted: Too many . Reading How often do you read?: I tend to read on most days, unless I'm too tired or busy with other things. Where do you read? Mostly in my room. When do you read? Usually in the afternoon, sometimes in the evening. In the weekends sometimes also in the mornings. How fast do you read? Pretty fast. The Forum When did you join this forum? January 2013 How did you find this forum? I used Google, BCF was one of the first hits. PS. I love this forum!
