By the way, how old were you when you read a novel for the first time? ;)

About fife or six. By that time, I knew the alphabet, but still couldn’t read. And then my brother taught me to put the letters together to get words.

That's an interesting question. I have always loved reading. When I was small I read hundreds of books for kids, novels came later. I think I could never get tired of that habit...

Will be glad to!
the book we call Azbuka is for young learners. There are different syllables, Dad was intensively trying to make me know all of them - I didn't read - I kept all of them in my memory - so I wasn't reading at all! Dad was mad, I was crying - we gave it up till school. Then mummy noticed me reading titles of newspapers, lines on TV and other available words I could see, so parents say I did it on my own after months trying to read under dad's attentive eye :D
