Hi, my name is Julian and I'm a read-a-holic.
Ever since I was a small boy growing up in Boston, I would read the papers and discuss politics and world events with my mother.
Then what started out as a precocious interest quickly transformed into a hard addiction.
I was soon reading everything I could get my hands on; political biographies, history, economics and social policy.
My addiction has caused me to miss out on, and neglect important things in life like TV, celebrity adulation, guns, hunting, pick up trucks, boats, motorcycles and drinking / partying.
I actually enjoy going for long walks and hikes, or a nice dinner and glass of wine to discuss things like human relationships, business, current events, the nature of man and society.
Just so you know, I'm not allowed near small children because I encourage them to read and think rather than watch TV or play video games.
I've even gone on vacation many times to tropical islands around the world and sat under palm trees reading books and enjoying languorous walks and swims. I knew it was wrong but I couldn't help myself.
I have a lifelong love of all things literate. If you're one of them I'd love to meet you.
Low key and casual, someplace quiet which is good for talking, maybe Starbucks or a happy hour glass of wine. Some place conducive to conversation so we can get to know each other.
