Joyfulchild’s questions:

1. How many books do you own?

  • Sadly, I don’t own as many as I would like. I don’t have enough space in my room to add shelves, or have enough compartments to store them. In my room I have about 50 books. :P

2. What book really got you into reading?

  • When I was a kid I loved the Junie B. Jones series. My kid sister grew up reading them, too.
