2. Best bargain.

I’m not a book collector, and I rarely try to find bargains, but I have one book I feel was a super bargain.

I’m a big fan of Tove Jansson, A Swedish Finnish author, and illustrator.

I’ve seen this all around my f-list, and as I love talking books, so...

1. Favourite book from childhood.
This is near impossible to answer. How long does childhood last? However you define it, it’s several years and you change so much. What I loved when I was four had certainly changed when I was eight, and so on. And I’ve always loved books, to name only my favourite would take a long time anyway. Let’s take the book which was the most important, to me from the age of eight until I was eighteen; J. R. R. Tolkien's>Lord of the Rings

When I read The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova the first time it felt like a book written specifically for me. I love long, slow-moving books. I love historical mysteries. I love vampires. I love multiple time-lines. I love history. And though I can’t say that this particular book had an unusual impact on me, it is representative for a few interest that has followed me for a long time.

One of my projects this year is to re-read those books that somehow mattered a bit more than other books. Not just fun, or interesting, but bit more. And I will start with the first book I can remember that brought the magic of literature to me. This book was a picture book, Historien om någon (The Story About Someone) by Åke Löfgren and illustrated by Egon Möller-Nielsen, and I was three years old. It’s something of a classic in Sweden, first published in 1951.
