Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop was created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and is currently hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This week’s question is:
When did you first know you’re truly a bookworm? Did you lose sleep over a novel?
As far back as I remember, I have always been a bookworm. As a small child, I had these sets of illustrated fairytales that I would read over and over again, and later when I a bit older than that, the few books my mom kept (one I remember being Oliver Twist an another a biography of Gandhi). I also read a lot of non-fiction books, like atlases (I would pore over them for hours), and a book about Australian bird species (I would also sketch out the birds from the book for practice!) In my teens, I started reading YA proper when a friend suggested me a book that her friend liked (yep, that was Twilight) and the obsession exploded, lol. And yes, even then I would lose sleep over novels regularly, much to the consternation of my mother.
