Hallo, everyone.

Hi, people!

I'm completely new to this forum so I'll just tell you a little something about myself.

I'm 19 years old, I study translating and interpreting in Vienna (in the languages German, Spanish and French) and - big surprise! - I love to read.

My favourite genre, though I read books of all kinds of genres, is definitely the fantasy genre. No matter how many great classics I discover or how many "normal" fiction novels I like, I just keep coming back to fantasy.

Some of my favourite authors include JK Rowling, Tad Williams, George R.R. Martin (of course ), Chuck Palahniuk, Jasper Fforde, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë and Christopher Moore. Quite a motley bunch, yes, but those are the ones that keep stealing my heart with the stories they write. Or wrote in some cases.

Alright... that seems about enough for one post. I'll get back to my reading now.

Welcome aboard Wendy! You'll find many like-minded readers around here, from all over the place. I'm a proud sci fi/fantasy geek myself, from way back

Welcome! Aren't we all waiting for George R.R. Martin's new book to arrive in the stores?

Thank you, you guys. I guess we are indeed all waiting for the new GRRM book
I'm pretty new to e-books but I like the idea very much. Definitely have to look at the fantasy section in that library...

Good to have your company, Wendy. Don't hold me to it, but I think the name 'Wendy' was actually invented by JM Barrie for the fairy in his fantasy book, Peter Pan. Best wishes. Neil
