Book diversion

More serious post later.

1)Total number of books owned?
I have no idea. I have two generous shelves of books unpacked, but boxes and boxes and boxes of books that I haven't seen since... gosh, some of them since I first moved out of my parent's house. Many, many more from when we moved to Sweden. I MISS my books.

2) The last book I bought?
Um. Oh, the last Luna book - Guardian of something. By Someone. I discontinued my subscription a month or so back. I'll have to order Urban Shaman separately. I tried to pre-order it when I called to discontinue, but it wasn't available for that yet.

3) The last book I read?
Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun. AWESOME book...

4) 5 books that mean a lot to me?
Return of the King - JRR Tolkein. Moreso than any of the other books in the series, because I loved the Scouring of the Shire so much. And Houses of Healing.
The Dark is Rising - Susan Cooper. Again, moreso than the other books in the series, though I loved them all.
Beauty - Robin McKinley. I have a signed hardcopy of this book in storage somewhere, and have read it so many times the slip cover is badly tattered.
The Pushcart War - ??? I don't have a copy of this book, but it's one of my all-time favorites from when I was a kid.
Rain Makes Applesauce - ??? Another one I don't have a copy of - I used to check this out of the library week after week after week when I was young.
Hand, Hand, Fingers Thumbs - ??? My nephews now have the copy of this that I grew up with. Dum Ditty Dum Ditty Dum Dum Dum!
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress - Heinlein. I ADORE this book.

(No I can't count...)

5) Tag 5 people and have them fill this out on their ljs:
I think EVERYONE on my list has done this by now. :) If you haven't, consider yourself tagged.
