My First Worldcon

I attended my first Worldcon (Worldcon 76) last weekend and it was amazing!

Worldcon, or more formally the World Science Fiction Convention, the annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS), is a science fiction convention. It has been held each year since 1939 (except for the years 1942 to 1945, during World War II). The World Science Fiction Society administers and presents the Hugo Awards, the oldest and most noteworthy award for science fiction. (from Wikipedia).

This was the first literary convention I had ever been to and it will definitely not be my last. I hardly have friends in real life who are into reading books, let alone reading SFF books. So it was great to attend a convention full of book nerds and on top of that, those who love the genres that I love reading.

Top ten authors I’ve read the most books from

I usually don’t like reading books from the same author again and again. I prefer reading different authors, genres and like variety in my books. So this tag was difficult for me to complete. In this list, I have read most of the books written by Enid Blyton, even though I don’t remember all of them. I have read every single book written by Hergé, as he is one of my all-time favorites. I have not read many books written by the other authors on the list.

So out of the 436+ books that I have read (as of today), I have not read many books from the same author. Maybe I should start doing that from now onwards. Continue reading
