Quant a miAs one of my friends in graduate school replied when I asked her what she liked to do, "You mean other than read?"
I cannot remember not reading - my mother says that I started reading at 2-and-a-half and given how our daughter is responding to books and words, she may not have been exagerating. I used to be a voracious reader who would happily spend the weekend curled up on the couch with a pile of books and an occasional trip to the kitchen for a new pot of tea. Before reading I am the mother of a toddler who adores books and being read to and "read by self". Beyond reading, I am a knitter, a gardener and I used to ride horses (and plan to again once the daughter is a bit older). I have a cat and a borzoi and wonderful husband who puts up with a continuous influx of books into our too small house.
Quant a la meva bibliotecaWhen I made the cross-country move 5 years ago, professional movers looked at the piles and piles and piles of book boxes and estimated 5000 pounds - there is more now even though space and budget restrictions have limited my purchases these past several years. Given that we live in a tiny house, most of it is STILL in boxes, making cataloguing a difficult process (and thus what appears here a somewhat eclectic cross section of the recent purchases and things that have somehow gotten unpacked that I have also gotten around to cataloguing). I have several hundred cookbooks, a substantial SF/F library - leaning heavily towards fantasy, and a fair bit of science, particularly cognition and development, which is my field. I have smaller collections of gardening books, horse books (both fiction and non), children's books and Arthurian books. My toddler daughter has a growing collection of picture books but those are catalogued separately.
I seldom buy mysteries, especially since moving somewhere with a respectable library system, though there are a few exceptions to that and I read many of them. It is in fact the access to such a library system that made me decide to include books I read from the library in my catalog as many of them I would have bought a few years ago (and many of them I will buy as budget permits). OTOH, since my local library doesn't catalog pocket paperbacks, I read much less fantasy than I used to.
Subscriptions: Cooking Light and Real Simple, although I always feel odd subscribing to a magazine dedicated to reducing clutter. I pick up Cook's Illustrated bound annuals when I find them inexpensively.
The daughter just switched from Babybug to Ladybug magazine. We plan to add Click and/or My Big Backyard when she turns 3. The husband receives several professional magazines and newsletters related to his field, space physics.
