I am a geek....

...with an obsession!

We've recently discovered that near our house is a the distro site of an online bookstore. A history bookstore. Specializing in hard-to-find books. I am in trouble. Seriously, bookstores (and buying books) gives me the same rush as normal people would get from...whatever normal people get rushes from!
Anyway, we walked over to
Heritage Books, and I left with six books (I put about 5 more back cause tomorrow is payday!):

Tudor Cousins
The Private Life of an Elizabethan Lady
Letters of the Queens of England
Bastard Prince: Henry VIII's Lost Son
Chronicles of the Tudor Queens
The Great Irish Potato Famine

Can you see what my obsession is? These add to my already large collection of English history books, and Irish stuff. Damn, I'll need a new bookshelf soon. The sad thing is, I've already been to the online store and saved another 4 books to my cart!

But I haven't mentioned the the best part of all yet. The owner is an archaeologist by trade, and runs digs in the summertime. He invited DH and I to help on a dig in August of a Roman site a couple miles down the road! Woo-hoo!

Told you I was a geek!

hmmmm I do this. Does it mean I'm a geek too? Except my obsession is Russian history. Ok so I admit it. I'm a geek.

Yup, Cyn, you're a geek too! :)Christina--I don't know squat about US history either; for some reason I was never interested... A dig is an archaeological excavation.

I also bought some books!

History, predating those of which my DW bought, although she does read 100 x faster than me!

I need complete quiet and with her turning pages and clicking the mouse, it's never quite quiet enough :)

That's awesome!

You're getting so savy at cosumizing your site that I'm getting jealous. I love fiddling around with that stuff, but I just haven't been able to spend the time figuing it out.
