Do you have any hobbies outside of reading?
Or do you collect anything?
This is a fabulous musing! My hobbies outside of reading are mostly craft related. I crochet, scrapbook, take a LOT of pictures, and have recently started teaching myself to sew. My friend also sent me items to learn knitting - which I am very excited about. Also, my children love puzzles and I really enjoy doing puzzles with them.
As for collections; Aside from my BOOK collection, my husband and I have quite a music collection. We both came into our marriage with quite a lot of vinyl records (yes, I'm aging myself, I know), CD's and even some cassettes. Most of the cassettes have gone now but we still have the CD's and vinyl. And our children are beginning to love collecting music, too.
I also have a Duran Duran (my MOST FAVORITE band EVER!) collection. In addition to their music (yes, on vinyl and CD) I have all their merchandise that I collected during my teen years: posters, pins, books, a purse, a jacket and many, many t-shirts. A lot of my Duran Duran t-shirts have been purchased during my adult years. In fact, they have a store on their official website that has a lot of stuff I want - like coffee mugs! I WILL be getting the mugs very soon. Oh, and some more t-shirts, of course - for myself and my children. I'm happy to say my Duran Duran love has been inherited by my kids. LOL
