…Yesterday I bought some great books online! Fantasy is my favourite genre, you know. I’m curious about your reading tastes! What kind of books do you enjoy diving into? And, the big question: are you a fan of e-books or do you prefer physical books? Have you got any book recommendations for me? Anything cool you’ve read recently that you think I’d love?
…My sister’s won a travel prize…

Thanks for your message. I’m happy to hear about your awesome book finds online!
Now, let me get to your questions. As for my reading tastes, I’m into a mix of genres, but lately, I’ve been hooked on mystery novels. When it comes to the format, I’m torn between the convenience of e-books and the feel of flipping through real pages. Yet, when I don’t want to disturb anyone with my late-night reading adventures, I prefer e-books. Oh, I’ve got a killer book recommendation for you – “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” by Stieg Larsson. It’s an absolute page-turner, if you enjoy crime thrillers!
Big congrats to your sister! I’m super curious about her prize. What’s the destination of the travel prize she won? What’s the story behind the prize? Did it catch her by surprise?
That’s all for now. Please write to me soon.
