About meMy dad's been a librarian all my life, so I really grew up in libraries. Now that I'm disabled and unable to work I spend loads of time reading. I listen to audio books pretty constantly. My sister and I managed an independent bookstore for a couple years. There's nothing more amazing than being responsible for which books are in the store.
About my libraryI mostly only buy books that I've already read and loved. I re-read a lot but new books I always get from the library. I've started collecting old school books (1900-1930s), which show up with surprising frequency at the local Habitat ReStore, and let me say, mathematics curriculum used to be WAY more useful and interesting.
