Expensive knowledge

I just love buying nursing books,subscribing to nursing magazines,reading about nursing areas that arent related to my specialty just out of pure curiousity,I also enjoy buying and listening to audio tapes by MEDED,which are review tapes for recertification in various specialties like med.surg,emergency,geriatric,and this at my own expense,no way the hospital will reimberse me,how ever it is a small tax write off at the end of the year.
    So I might spend a $1000.00 a year.
    I feel this information keeps me thinking and current,but at the same time perhaps Im taking it to far,the expense part.
    Any one else do this?
