About meEver since I was a girl, I loved to read. My favorites were books by [[Thea Beckman]], [[Astrid Lindgren]] and Roald Dahl. Early on I started on adult books with detectives by Agatha Christie at Eleven. [Dune] was my introduction to Science fiction; at seventeen I read [The Hobbit] and [Lord of the rings] and was forever lost to fantasy. My first heartbreak was solved by romance novels. No wonder I chose Library and Information when I went to college. (Where I found out that reading is not necessary to do my job). I love movies, cycling and long walks.

About my libraryMy collection is broad. It contains a lot of the books I read as child, and in college. Last year I cleaned out my old college books to make more room. There is still a part I have not read, because I never got to it. A large part of the collection is fantasy!
