Books have been my vocation and avocation at various times of my life. Growing up in a family of readers; I started my slow descent into the hobby of reading. Reading is so addictive, I often use to read into the wee hours of the morning. The early birds were out there looking for worms and I had 50 pages left to finish my book. PLEASE NOTE: My bookshelf does not reflect my reading habits!
