Mr Greg’s book addiction? It’s beyond his family. Thousands in his house, everywhere. The bedroom has so many books that his wife has been pushed out. Greg says he needs them all. His kids think it’s weird. The weirder part is, Greg hardly reads them. The weirdest part? the books are insured.

And Mark welcomed insomnia until he moved out.
