How many books do I own?
a hundred. (I went and counted, and it's closer to 450.) After moving 3 times in 2 years, I decided to put the packrat (me) on a diet. Heh. Not a food diet, no, but a book diet. It was horribly hard to do. I buy a lot of books, read a lot of books, but now I also give away a lot of books. The ones I do keep are the ones I read over and over and OVER again. Used book stores usually do a nice trade.
Latest book(s) purchased:
The Skies Of Pern - Anne McCaffrey
The Murder Book - Jonathan Kellerman
The Healing Power of Illness: Understanding What Your Symptoms Are Telling You - Dethelefsen & Dahlke
Last book read:
I just finished The Lord of the Rings - for about the fiftieth time. I had recently tried to watch the DVD of the movies, and only made it partway through the second one before I felt ILL. On the whole, they did an ok job, but some of my favorite characters and events had either been left out or perverted into something completely foreign. I had to go read the books again, just to get that bad taste out of my brain.
I am also reading Care of the Soul by Thomas Moore, I Was Poisoned By My Body: The Odyssey of a Doctor Who Reversed Fibromyalgia, Leaky Gut Syndrome, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity - Naturally! by Gloria Gilbere, and Angels & Demons by Dan Brown.
I usually have 3-4 books going at the same time. It's a mood thing.
5 Books that I like a lot / read a lot / mean a lot to me:
In no particular order:
- Dark Rivers of the Heart- Dean Koontz
- The Pern Books - Anne McCaffrey - Do I have to pick just one? Ok, *sigh*, my 6 favorites are the dragon rider series, and the 3 dragonsong books. And if I absolutely MUST pick a favorite of those, it would probably be Dragonflight
- The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien
- Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
- The Crystal Cave - Mary Stewart

Cripes, this is the hard part. It looks like everybody has either already been tagged or already done it long ago.
I'll just leave this open. Anybody want to do the meme, let me know and I'll add you here!
