Name: Dani
Age: 26

Find me on Goodreads: uhhh here, I'd love to read more and be active on it more.

Preferred Reading Format: I used to be a physical only type of gal, but I recently got a kindle and it's changed my life! I can't do audio books though, not yet. Maybe one day.
What was the first book you remember reading? Maybe Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree? Or, uh, (story time) there is a book called Heart by Edmondo De Amicis that was turned (loosely) into an anime that was translated into Hebrew that inspired a translated book called The Heart, identical to the original Italian. I remember the book being so huge and so heavy to hold up and full of gorgeous art pieces from the anime. I loved it so much. That might have been the first book I've read and if it wasn't, it's definitely one of the first to leave an impression on me.

Tell us about your favourites!

Books: Northern Lights by Philip Pullman (the first in the His Dark Materials trilogy) is probably my favourite book still. Ender's Game is my favourite science fiction book. I also really love Angels & Demons, 1984, LotR, The Malory Towers series (shaped my childhood tbh, along with the Chronicles of Narnia), Origin (another Dan Brown and a recent addition but I feel like this book was written for me) and probably loads more I can't play this game.
Authors: fam. don't do this to me. Douglas Adams. His words and his humour always make me feel better.
Genres: As a rule, if it makes me think then I like it. Science fiction and fantasy are often my go to genres, but I'll read anything if I think it sounds interesting.

Name: Felix
Age: 27 at the last count

Find me on Goodreads: Right here. I'm on Goodreads pretty much constantly at the moment.

Preferred Reading Format: Ebooks, predominantly. So convenient to buy and carry around and store, you don't have to touch any paper, and you can mess around with the settings and find a font/size which works best for you, rather than be stuck with what's printed. Getting an ereader with a backlight was an absolute gamechanger. I do own and read a lot of (mostly paperback) physical books too though and I still like them. Tbh, if I can read from it, I like it just fine. Audiobooks are no good for me, because my auditory processing/memory is so bad and my attention span is shocking, so none of it sticks. But I think as long as someone has a medium they like and that works well for them, then that's ace.
What was the first book you remember reading? I don't remember stuff like that in chronological order so I have literally no idea. Just your regular kids' books I suppose, maybe something from The Magic Key.

Tell us about your favourites!

Books: Impossible to pick really, and also I've never been good at deciding on favourites because it changes so much. The books I rate high on Goodreads probably count but u will have to add me to see those.

Preferred Reading Format: Real books, it can be hard or paper, though I read from my kindle and phone I'd much rather have a book in my hand.

What was the first book you remember reading? Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NiMH, but I only kind of remember reading that as a kid, the one that stuck with me and probably the first one I truly liked was the Outsiders.

Tell us about your favourites!

Books: Women's Murder Club, Harry Potter, Dragon Blood,

Authors: James Patterson, Lindsay Buroker are the only two that really come to mind, I don't typically go by authors as much as I do books that interest me.

Genres: Any really that catches my attention, but I tend to read more Fantasy, YA, and happy ending type books.

Find me on Goodreads: I joined! Clicky.

Preferred Reading Format: Gosh, I love hardcovers. I feel like they're a worthy splurge. But I also know I get distracted easily, so I love snagging a title through my phone via the free library app. So yeah, mostly I do e-reading... on my phone. *too poor for a tablet reader thingy =[

What was the first book you remember reading? The Reasons for the Seasons. I remember I picked this out of my teacher's book bins in the first grade, took it home, and read it all by myself. I was VERY proud of myself, y'know, big scientist and all that.

Favorite Books: As a true book lover, I think of them as my children, and do not play favorites. MAYBE Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Favorite Authors: They're all my friends. I ALSO do not play favorites with them! But I only belong to ONE HP fansite, so there's that.

Favorite Genres: Thrillers, mysteries, "literary" fiction, classics, YA fiction, humorous memoirs. Because I am now an Old Person™ it takes me a while to suspend my disbelief and commit to fantasy books. Like George R.R. Martin, I still haven't finished A Song of Ice and Fire.

I have full sets of mickey & minnie adventures, disney princess books, ladybird read me books and the osborne farm books (where you had to find the yellow duck on each page), Mog cat books and the very hungry caterpillar... I also have books and books of nusery rhymes and princess stories. Because I'm an adult, they are in my bookcase and not in boxes.

Books: Um... This is hard. I'll list a few cause no way can I pick a favourite... The Chronicles of Ixia. House of Night. Harry Potter but not JKR sorry. His Dark Materials. PS I love you. Noughts and Crosses. Avry of Kazan.
