Smile What do you like to collect?

I'm a thirft store junkie. How about you? I collect old dishes made by Homer Laughlin, and my husband and I collect old book. What do you crave when you walk through the doors of your favorite thrift store?

I don't look through thrift stores, but I do collect... wait for it... nurse dolls :-) My mom has a HUGE collection of figurines, dolls, etc.

Otherwise, anything crafty pretty much seeks me out and attaches itself to my person. Fabric, stickers, beads, mosaic tiles... I am a magnet. I cannot go into a Michael's without shaking things off before I walk out :-)

Talking Rock Stars

I wish I collected rock stars! Instead I collect debt on all the money I spend on rock star stuff!

No matter how much time we ever spend on the computer, nothing will ever take the place of curling up with a good book!

Books are the most wonderful things in the world. They are more than objects on a shelf. Holding a good book is like holding a new world in your hands.

Default luxury reading

Ah yes, I'm a bibliophile from way back--and I live in the town with the most bookstores per capita as well as the highest library use....and the mother ship--Powell's (www.powells.com)

It's been hard being in school and having so much to read for courses and research that I don't get to do much pleasure reading. It's almost felt like "cheating" the few times I've had lay books assigned, like John M Barry's The Great Influenza if you haven't read it, it's a great read: really makes you aware of how far medicine has come in a very short time (the first 1/3 of the book is about the rise of the science of medicine).

That's always my treat when I have down time: get to read some fiction, or something else that isn't so intense.

Default Oh Those Lovely Dust Collectors!

Hey there! I collect nursing figurines and other nursing stuff. I think we all do or others collect it for us! I used to collect music globes but have moved on to hummingbirds. Boy what an estate sale my kids will have when I'm gone! Just kidding! I hope it won't be for a very long time! I am also an insatiable reader. I have noticed that many fellow nurses read a lot.

Default another book collector

Yep, love my books, too. To me, they're like old friends, like I've gone through something with each book I've read.
