Yes I did and still do. My individual library. I remember I started nurturing this hobby (initially it was just a hobby but later turned into a passion, as you said) from the day when I failed to find Tale of Two Cities in the town library and had to collect enough money out of meager pocket money the seniors used to allow me. Roughly, it took me more than two months to get the price and when I handed over the same to my elder cousin who had been working somewhere as an apprentice in Pune city, I suddenly felt something delightful symptoms were blooming in my heart as it was to become my first purchase.

I do all the needful to my family and friends.
And I draw a circular round around me &
wont allow anyone to cross against my passions.
My passion on anything is always abnormal.
They know my Madness.

I have countless plants, trees and shrubs and I check them every single day to see if there are any new shoots, new buds, new fruits!! They call it the Naoh's Ark.

Yes it is logging in to rediff QNA and chatting with friends on yahoo or gmail. And it does not deter me in the least as this is my social life.
