Books are my first love, house of my family was always full of them.
Now I have time to read books only on my vacation. Then I read really fast. Few hundred pages per day.
Beside this I developed one strange hobby. I systematically collect and put in my brain a lot of information.
From books (historical, geographical, encyclopaedias ...), newspapers, internet, news channels, whatever source I can find...
I specially prefer to store economical facts (on business channels I can found ocean of information
There is no any practical use of this hobby but I like to build some kind of a database in my mind and on that way I am totally out of mine problems.
