Om migRising-50 bibliophile...I can't help it, it's always been this way! You know, from reading under the covers with a torch, to a house whose pillars are piles of books. Married to an equally book-obsessed man, with one son who avoids reading if he can help it. Just don't talk to me about role-modelling: what a big load of phooey! But he teaches me a lot about being funny, cricket, Yu-gi-oh, computer games and pop culture (like why you need a mobile phone for everything other than making phone calls)
In another life I was a school librarian - in various places in Sydney, and then in Dorset in England for a couple of years. Nowadays I'm a researcher.
I'm not one of these people who dread the idea of retirement. I can't wait. I'm hoping then there'll be time to do everything: make cards and ATCs, travel (everywhere - there will be a huge lottery win to enable this), swim every day at a time other than 5:30am, read, play on the computer even more, and continue being an obsessive photo-blogger.
Om mitt bibliotekThere isn't a room in the house without books. I just went into the laundry, and sure enough...(hey, I found that book I was looking for).
The ratio of Read:TBR is a constant worry, but nature abhors a vaccuum, so if a space appears in the bedroom shelves (all the TBRs), it MUST be filled.
