Snagged from quite a few people, but most recently from [livejournal.com profile] slaymesoftly

1. Favourite childhood book?
Hmm...it's impossible to pick one. I got a lovely collection of children's classics as a present when I was about 8 which I adored, my favourites being Around the World in Eighty days, Journey to the Centre of the Earth,  20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Gulliver's Travels, Swiss Family Robinson and other wonderful adventure stories, my least favourite being the more 'girly' books. When I was 10 I was given the Silver Brumby books by Elyne Mitchell which I guess are my absolute favourite childhood books as I have read them so many times I can quote large sections. I also loved and adored Jennie by Paul Gallico, The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper and The Narnia books (although the series I had only had didn't include The Magician's Nephew, so one day I must read that one).

2. What are you reading right now?
Um... a fanfic, actually, but I do have Guild Wars: Edge of Destiny that I just purchased from Amazon waiting for me to finish the fic (although in some way I guess it kind of counts as a fanfic too. lol.)

3. What books do you have on request at the library?
I like to own books, so I don't tend to use the library any more... haven't since my kids were quite young.

4. Bad book habit?
None that I can think of... a book rarely looks read after I finish with it. Oh...does reading to the exclusion of anything else including cooking dinner for my family count?

6. Do you have an e-reader?
Yes. I have an old Sony e-reader which has been used so much its buttons have worn out, so I treated myself to a Kindle last year and absolutely love it!
