An Obscure Hobby
I try not to collect anything. I hate clutter. The only thing I collect are WWI books. The Great War is my main focus, and one day I'd like to teach a class on it, as well as write books about the conflict. My goal is to publish a history of the Battle of Gallipoli in 2015, the 100th anniversary of the campaign. As for the books, I have about 200. Mostly they're all in boxes until I get my two story private library with a winding staircase. My dream home library will also have plush chairs, and I'll sit and read in my smoking jacket, whilst sipping sherry from a crystal goblet and drawing on a meerschaum pipe.
