Thread Name: Books: What have you been caught reading ?
Subject: RE: BS: What have you been caught reading ?
gee; I thought this was gonna be a thread on getting caught reaidng dirty books as teenagers (or in my case even younger; I was a precocious reader).

I have reached that point in my life where, to paraphrase someone who wrote a column on this in the Boston Phoenix, I buy books instead of reading them.

I have a vast collection of books, most of them from used bookstores. I have lots of books on the occult, Celtic mythology, film, herbs, aromatherapy, cooking (including anear-complete set of those old Time-Life cookbooks of the world series), plenty of fiction, plays, poetry, and art.

recent purchases which I hope to get around to reading soon: Angels and Insects by A. S. Byatt; Writing for Antiquity; New Australian Cinema; The Oxford Book of English Folklore; Echoes Down the Corridor by Arthur Miller.
