About meReading is what I do instead of, you know, almost anything else. I carry around at least three books with me at all times. I'm usually reading while doing anything that doesn't require two hands and/or full concentration. And yes, it is possible to cook one handed only half-paying attention.

About my libraryI have a book addiction. I've been buying a couple books a week for the past 5 years or so and I'm a horrible packrat, can't bring myself to get rid of any of them. I haven't moved for 2 years and even then my books took up more room than anything else but the large furniture. I'm trying not to think about what it'll be like when next I move.
