I am a librarian by degree. Lifelong book lover and, at one point, a collector with an impressive library of my own.

All my books, music, movies, art, keepsakes and musical instruments/gear were wiped out in a flood in September, 2010.

Since then, by design, I own very little.

I do now own a handful of books, some movies and music, but I keep it minimal.

Either online or through an actual library system, I can access almost anything.

I don't feel the need to own every book I enjoy or may want to read someday. I don't care for audiobooks or e-books either, really...still prefer the old school experience when reading for the most part. But I really prefer not being weighed down by "stuff" or possessed by possessions.
