About meI'm compulsive about buying and hoarding books, but tend to read the public library's books instead. I suspect having a deadline spurs me on to finish a book that if I owned, would likely languish on the shelf instead. I usually have six or eight books on the go at once, which I refer to as 'changing channels'. When I'm not reading books, I'm often reading about them on blogs and newspaper websites. I'm always curious to know what other people are reading and have been known to read over peoples' shoulders on commuter trains.
