He says his family have been preparing for the record and the guests — my mom already made myself a new hairstyle and made him clothes, and a younger sister — shined his shoes. To the question put books in the house, Dima said: “the House will soon burst! The record, of course, be prepared, I even could not even dream of. Most likely, will expand its library.”
According to the boy, his favorite genre — science fiction and detectives. “For me, each book is special. As library Director, I warn readers to treat them carefully,” — says Dima.
