Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.
This week Billy asks: What other interests do you have besides reading and blogging?
In addition to reading and blogging, I spend quite a bit of time board gaming and playing tabletop role-playing games. I am part of a regular group that gets together to play games, usually alternating between a day playing various board games and a day role-playing. Because I'm willing to take on the work required for the role, I am usually stuck in the role of the game master. I don't really mind - I'm at my most comfortable in a role-playing game taking the part of the referee, but I do wish I could just be a player every now and then. The redhead and I own a reasonably large number of board games, and an almost ridiculously large array of role-playing game books.
I would also say that I am a book collector as much as I am a book reader. I collect so many books that "collecting" almost certainly qualifies as a separate interest than merely reading, in part because, although I intend to read every book I acquire, there is a chance that I simply won't be able to. I own just over ten thousand books, all of which have been sorted and cataloged, although the systems I use for these purposes would probably be nigh incomprehensible to anyone except me. I hope to read them all, but I'm going to have to live a long time to be able to reach that goal.
