Reading Books

Reading books has been one of my oldest hobbies (except wandering around on streets and talking to friends). I have been reading books here and there since my childhood (apart from those school books and competetive exam books). The first series of english books that I read was The Famouse Five, The Secret Seven and The Three Investigators.
Later on I started reading Hardy Boys and sometimes Nancy Drew also.
