Life Goals:

I try to keep my tool collection to a just what I need.

I fail at this sometimes but nearly everything has its job and its place.

I keep my wood stash to a controllable level.

I work to curb my need to gather office and art making supplies.

I fail at this sometimes too. I like to try new things. But many of the things end up going to my children for their endeavors.

One thing I will always, unapologetically collect is books.

Woodworking, art and artists, history, sci-fi, sword and sorcery fantasy, RPG's, comic books, movie prop memorabilia, and anything else that catches my fancy. A friend introduced me to the term BAD or Book Acquisition Disorder, and brothers and sisters I have it.

I have given up many vises in my time on this planet: tobacco, alcohol, drugs, and food.

I will never give up my addiction to the written words, drawings, and photos assembled on a page and bound together.

  2. Here's another book-lover acronym: NELF - Never Enough Linear Feet. Always need more bookshelf space!

  3. Jep, well said. For me it's Vinyl and books.

  4. I was raised to cherish books. Unfortunately my dear wife cannot understand why a book needs be kept after reading it. She sees books on shelves as clutter-precious space better used for useless items.
    Just don't dare touch my tools.

  5. I believe Grucho Marks said, Outside of a dog a book is man's best friend,
    Inside of a dog it is too dark to read."

  6. I’ve been trying to keep my book collection down by buying some ebooks.
