Ramblings of a Coffee-Addicted Writer!
No, alas, he does not.....My husband is more of a tech nerd, whereas I am a TOTAL book nerd! Lol. In fact, he really can't understand my obsession with books, especially when it comes to buying them. I already have lots and lots of books in our condo that I haven't read, plus many more in storage, since we had to move last March, and our new place is smaller. He can't understand why I haven't read the books I already own, instead of continuing to buy new ones. Well, it's a bookworm thing, as we all know! There's the allure of the book we don't own yet....
As for actually reading books, he doesn't do much of that, either. He prefers to read short articles on the Internet, or watch tech YouTube videos, or play video games. I can immerse myself for hours in a book, losing track of the world at large. He needs some sort of physical action to keep his attention engaged.
Bookstores certainly do not appeal to him, so he can't see himself spending hours and hours in them, which is what I LOVE to do. On the other hand, he can walk into a computer store and spend hours and hours in there, while I am completely bored.
He's also into biking, and just generally being outdoors. Although I love the outdoors, I can't take it for very long, because of such things as mosquitoes (and now I'm worrying about the Zika virus, people!), the heat, and the fact that I really prefer to use our home bathroom to public restrooms (and, depending on where we are, there might be no indoor plumbing readily available).
So we just respect each other's tastes, and try not to let our different geeky passions stand in the way of marital harmony.
I'm already looking forward to visiting this year's Miami International Book Fair, scheduled to take place in November! Hubby will drop me off in the morning, and I'll spend the entire day there, blissful in Book Paradise! I'll be browsing, buying, and going to book presentations and signings. Meanwhile, he will probably spend his time tinkering with his laptop's motherboard, biking at Tropical Park, or playing the latest version of "Assassin's Creed", on our living room TV. Or maybe all three, one after the other. Lol.
