Haha, actually not too bad! I didn't even feel anything hit my head, as the helmet was fantastic. I dislocated and fractured my right arm, my right side was purple from bruising for a bit, and I was limping for a few weeks, but that's about it. Other than a few minor scars on my arm and knee, you can't even tell I was an idiot!

Haha not too bad then. How long ago was this? Is it still healing?

This was during the long weekend in late January. Thankfully I'm fully healed, which means I'm all set to do it again

Great to hear! This time, when riding uphill, pull the rear break hard to see what happens :P

First book I bought: I cannot recall, but one that sticks out clearly in my mind is Eldest. Why I bought it before I had even read Eragon, I do not know.
First book I read: the Bible, with my family, every night. :)

First one I bought: Think it was the first ever Diary of a Wimpy Kid book when I was 8 years old

First one I read: I honestly can't remember the exact one but I remember reading "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" when I was in Year 1
Which will hold greater rule over you? Your fear or your curiosity?

First book I bought: This took some memory retracing as well a re-examination of my small home library. My first actual purchase was the Big Nate Big Six-Book Box Set from Costco. I was obsessed with the Big Nate comics and read all the ones available in school. When I saw it, I carried it to my mum, begged until she finally gave me permission to buy it with my pocket money (yes, I needed to ask her first) and read through all six within a week  :)

First one I read: I absolutely cannot remember to save myself. I have always been surrounded by them so I have zero idea what my first actual read was. If we count being read to, my grandma read me The Little Prince every night to put me to sleep. My first independent read though was probably a book from kindergarten but I have no clue what it was.

Really thought-provoking prompt by the way, insanipi!

Haha came here to say Skulduggery Pleasant also! I don't know if it's the first book I bought, but definitely one of the first that I remember buying.

They're so good right!! I got halfway through re-reading the series last year but got sidetracked. Should get back into it soon but I have so many books on my to-read list haha.

I think the first series that I remember reading myself was the famous five by enid blyton. I remember my mum reading deltoras quest to me and my siblings when we were young but i'm not really sure which came first.
I'm not sure what the first book I bought was - I never bought any as a kid except perhaps from book shop vouchers because I had 5 siblings and practically a whole library at home already (I'm not joking, we must have had at least 10 bookcases full + what we had in our bedrooms. Dad built a bookshelf designed to cover one entire wall of a room.)
