Photo Hunt--Hobby

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


This weeks theme is HOBBY. You can join the photo hunt by going

  • and view the blog list for them on my side bar.




    I am not sure if this is a hobby or a bad habit. As you can see from the photo this week, my hobby seems to be reading. Actually I think my hobby is buying books. I buy more than I read. This is only one book case, mostly my metaphysical books. I have another smaller shelf for paper backs and even another one in the dinning room for my cookbooks. Whew, Maybe I should take up something else..Like knitting.

    I have piles of books I still haven't read too - yet every time I go by a book store, I go in and buy one more! It's addictive! At least I know I'll never be bored ;)

    You could take up knitting but then you'd have to buy more books for that, too! Nothing wrong with having lots and lots of books!

    Books are good. There are certainly worse hobbies. :) And don't worry, you'll probably read them eventually.

    Your book shelf looks like my son's book shelf. I'm more a movie buff.

    Hey reading as a hobby has got to be good. More and more people shy away from books and watch tv or goes to the computer. I read a little too, mostly fiction. Hey and those two brooms by the book case, you don't play quidditch do you? Just wonderin'

    I like buying DVD movies and I also buy them more than I watch. They're much cheaper than books, only like US$7/movie (new released ones!) here :)

    Thanks for stopping by & happy weekend, Autumn!

    Reading is my great hooby too, although I didn't photograph my books, but my quilts. I think my hobby is as much buying as reading and I visit the library every Saturday as well. I own 12 bookcases with books three deep in each. I never add up how much I spend each year because I don't want to know.

    Reading is such an awesome hobby, wish I still had time for it!

    I love going to the VA Living Museum, great photo ops there and the animals are just so much fun.

    You must be a serious reader if you have different book shelves for different books!

    Reading is a great hobby! :) My humans had so many books that when they were back in Canada, they stopped buying them and started borrowing from the library. Now that they are in Germany, they've had to go back to buying books, since the libraries don't have many English books on hand.

    How can you buy books and not read them ? I would go crazy if I see a book I haven't read, lol !

    Reading is definitely NOT a bad habit, unless, of course, what you are reading is not good! Thanks so much for stopping by Pollywog Creek and have a great weekend!

    One can never have too many books or enjoy doing too many things. I love books too... but have had to rediscover the library and stay away from Barnes and Noble these last few years. Have a great hunt!

    My mom collected cook books.
    When I was growing up I'd compare the kitchen to mad scientist lab.
    I've ate a wide variety of foods.

    My "to be read" pile grows higher with each trip to Barnes & Noble...sigh!
    I've tried to restrict myself but it is oh so hard to do!!

    I also have a ton of books just waiting to be read. One day I'm going to take a vacation by myself and just lie on the beach and read all the books I've always wanted to read.

    Reading is a great hobby! If you really want to take up knitting, I can tell you a great website (with videos) that helped me teach myself.

    Happy weekend!

    I love the old bookcases like that, those are quality. You could read while you knit!

    I have many hobbies, reading's one of them.

    I usually buy books by the boxes whenever I'm abroad. And I have yet to read most of them :)

    I would have to say that often hobbies really are just bad habits in disguise.
    Thanks for visiting. I'll stop by more often.

    That's us to a 't'. Of the 5 of us in my family, 3 of us are voracious readers. We have bins and bins of books in our garage, not to mention the stacks in our closets, end tables, desks, and so forth.

    Our new house has a formal living room with french door, we're going to make that into a library with glass french doors, I can't wait!

    Nice PH pic!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog,

    I have always preferred a good book to almost anything! My aunt (an Italian clean-freak) used to say that women who read have dirty houses! Like that was a BAD thing!!!

    Reading is a nice hobby to have, and or book collecting. Whichever you prefer :) I love to read more now than ever, however I never have much time with 2 little boys. I still enjoy it when I can though.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a great weekend.

    I too have a bad habit of buying too many books. But when I took up crochet I bought too many crochet books!

    Yeah, knitting is a good hobby to have, but not only will you need to collect more books (on knitting, of course) but you'll start collecting a lot of knitting supplies. Like yarn, and knitting needles, and stitch markers.... And tell ya what, yarn takes up a lot more space than books do. But, then again, nothing wrong with having two hobbies..... Or three, you could take up quilting when you've decided you've got a big enough yarn stash built up and need to find a different hobby that doesn't gather so much yarn.... So, then take up quilting, because fabric well..... *grin*

    Smiling at your comment about buying books being a hobby. :) I have some on certain topics, like home management, that I kept buying and finally convinced myself I need to read and implement the ones I have!!
