"If I wrote an autobiography, its title would be: The Night Owl's Guide: What to Read When You're in the Dark."
What I do when I'm not at the library: Reading, of course! What - you thought I might say something else?
When I'm not in the library I also enjoy going to museums (the National Art Gallery) or to antique shows and taking walks. I also enjoy activities like sewing and embroidery, but I have tried just about every craft there is although some attempts have been a complete disaster.
Folklore and mythology, fairy tales.
