1. I use to have alot of books, but my big brother burned them for some reason, so I stopped buying Barney books.

2. The last book I brought was for my grandma, called "Deordorant is your friend", and she hit me in the head with it, and that stinked! That's the last time I'm gona listen to my big brother, I think.

3. The last book I read was the Never Ending Story, which almost never ended, but it did for some reason, so I don't know what that author was talking bout.

4. The book that means the most to me is my math book, I gota pass next weeks test!

millenniumhippies

1. I don't know how many books I have. I used to store them all on bookshelves but bookshelves are not the most practical thing to have around with toddlers, so many of my academic books are stored in the garage until a later day. My dream is to have a house with a large room that serves as a library, with bookshelves lining the walls and a large table for all of us to do our work on, a few good reading chairs, and a fireplace.
I spend a lot of money on books. Since I have very little time for reading, I would say these days I am buying too many books. There are about nine completely new books on my nightstand which I have not delved into in any depth.
2. The last book I finished was Catfish and Mandala by Andrew X Pham.
3. The last book I bought was The Power of One, by Bryce Courtenay

Speaking of political biographies I have quite a few biographies of Benjamin Franklin on my nightstand, a few that I've finished, a few that I have yet to start.

I'm sorry I'm not following directions...I have hundreds of books...but you got me on a kick to see which books I liked or changed me in some way at some point in my life...so I made a (short)list of those...

*Women Who Run with the Wolves-Pinkola-Estes
*Better Than School-Wallace
*Bird by Bird-Lamott
*Celebration of Discipline-Foster
*The Secret Language of Eating Disorders-Pierre
*The Teenage Liberation Handbook-Llewllyn

*Celestine Prophecy (thanks for reminding me J&J's mom)-Redfield
*The Seat of the Soul-Zukav
*Frankenstein-Shelley
*Paradise Lost-Milton
*Yoga, Youth & Reincarnation-Stern
*Ishmael-Quinn
*The Excellent Wife-Peace

I just finished don't waste your life by John Piper...and am reading On Writing, by Stephen King and The Underground History of American Education by Gatto, online :)

Phil

1. Lots and lots and lots and lots. Maybe even one or two more "and lots"'s. If I had someplace to put another 3-4 bookshelves I could get the books off the floor, desk, out of the attic . . .

2. I'm honestly not sure.

3. "Practical Fishing Knots" . . . had to brush up on a few knots for an upcomming trip :)

Allie

1) Total number of books I've owned :

Ohh deaaar, I don't know really... I have too many to mention I guess. If you consider that when I moved back from London last year, I had about 3+ boxes full of books... you can imagine the number, right? It's never enough for me when it comes to books... haha!

2) The last book I bought :

It was a book called "Perfect match" by Jodi Picoult. Amazing book!

Synopsis :

Assistant District Attorney, Nina Frost, discovers what every parent fears - her five year old son has been sexually abused. Nathanial is so traumatised he becomes mute. Following work with a psychiatrist, he identifies "father" as the perpetrator. Nina's husband, Caleb Frost , a stonemason is devastated by the accusation, but it is soon revealed that the "father " is actually the family priest.
The frustration of seeing too many guilty child molesters slip through the system to their freedom, leads Nina to take matters into her own hands.

3) The last book I read :

"Murphy's By" by Torey L. Hayden. She is one of my favourite writers... I think I've read almost every single book she has ever written!

Synopsis :

When special education teacher Torey Hayden first met fifteen year old Kevin, he was barricaded under a table. Desperately afraid of the world around him, he hadn't spoken a word in eight years. He was considered hopeless, incurable, but Hayden refused to believe it, though she realised it might well take a miracle to break through the walls he had built around himself. With unwavering devotion and gentle, patient love, she set out to free him, - and slowly uncovered a shocking violent history and a terrible secret that an unfeeling bureaucracy had simply filed away and forgotten. But she never gave up on this tragic "lost case". For a trapped and frightened boy desperately needed her help - and she knew in her heart she could not rest easy until she had rescued him from the darkness.

4) 5 books that mean a lot to me :

"One Child" by Torey L. Hayden
"L'enfant dans le placard" by Othilie Bailly
"The Alchimist" by Paulo Coelho
"Ps. I love you" by Cecelia Ahern
"If only it were true" by Marc Levy

Shaar

1) I couldn't even begin to guess at this one. I have enough to fill a small library though.
2)Sam's Letters to Jennifer By: James Patterson I needed a quick read while waiting for appointments so I picked this one up on my way.
3)Broken Music: A Memoir By: Sting

Shannin

1) Like the others, I don't have an exact count. I have five bookshelves, double stacked. All I know is that when I moved from CA to MN, the packers rolled their eyes when they saw how many I had.

2) I tend to buy books in batches (who can buy just one?), so the last few were some Stephen King replacement books for ones I had lent out.

3) The last book I read was "Exodus from Obesity" in preparation for my decision on surgery.

4) This changes, so without thinking too much about it, my list would be:
a) His Dark Materials (trilogy), Phillip Pullman
b) The Fountainhead, Ayn Rand
c) A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Betty Smith
d) The Valkryies, Paul Cohelo
e) And So It Goes, Linda Ellerbee

Garnet

1. I can't count how many books I have. Three large tall bookcases full, two or three other smaller ones full, and some stacked in various places throughout the house. Oh yeah and some in boxes in the basement! I LOVE BOOKS!

2. Last book bought: 365 Goddesses

3. Last book read: Skinny Legs and All by Tom Robbins (for the fourth time!)

emaleejayne

1. You can never have too many books!! Since I've been in France (2.5 years) I have purchased over 150 books some of which, after reading, I gave to the local library (the paperbacks) and some that now have a place in my permanent collection.

2. The last books I purchased were Fat Girl a true story by Judith Moore, The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd and 4th of July by James Patterson.

3. I just finished reading Blinded by Stephen White.

Cara

1. I couldn't begin to count the number of books that I own. My husband calls me a "book collector" because I'll buy 5 books that I intend on reading instead of just buying one book at a time.

2. "The Remains of The Day" by: Kazuo Ishiguro

3. Exact same answer of question # 2

Julie

1. Tons, too many to even guess

3. The Red Tent (I completely recommend it!)
4. I could not begin to narrow it down to five!

aka_monty

1.Total Number of Books Owned
Somewhat less than 10,000. But not much. I have books in the garage, the attic, bookshelves crammed full and double-stacked, and my bedroom has actually been taken over and conquered by books.
2.Last Book Bought
"The Isle Of Dogs" by Patricia Cornwell
3. Last Book Read
"The Prophet" by Frank Peretti
4. Which five books mean the most...
I cannot choose five, because then I would have to leave out at least 200 favorites. :)

Tammy

1. Alot...I actually counted the ones in my bedroom the other day, but I can't remember what the total was...and I've bought a book since then, lol.

2. "Plain Truth" by Jodi Picoult

3. "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult. My mother sent it to me. It's HER fault I went out and bought another new book. All her fault!

Mamacita

1. Many many thousands, and more all the time.

2. I'd like to tell you all that it was a classic of some kind, but to be honest, it was yet another Judy Bolton mystery, via Ebay. My specialty is YA literature, and I collect Judy Bolton mysteries.

3. 'Two-Part Invention' by Madeleine L'Engle.

Thumper

1.Total Number of Books Owned: 20 billion, I think. Enough that we have a 10x20 storage unit, and I bet half the stuff in there are books.

2.Last Book Bought: Haunted, by Chuck Palahniuk. Will probably read tomorrow.

3. Last Book Read: Daughter's Keeper by Ayelet Waldman. Found her blog online, bought her book, and loved it. I'm really bummed she shut her blog down :(

Isabella

1. Thousands. Likely tens of thousands.
2. Last bought: Walter Mosley's The Man in My Basement, but that was a while ago as I'd not allowed myself any more purchases till we got through moving house (and I listened to myself!). Today I intend to go buy Umberto Eco's The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.
3. Last finished: Iain Pears' The Dream of Scipio. In progress: José Saramago's The Double.

How did you like The Fifth Child, Michele? And which author have you decided to read this summer?

Heather

2. Last Bought: The Art of Mending. It was my book club selection.
3. Last finished: A Light in the Darkness by Francine Rivers.

Deb

1. I'm way too lazy to count but a lot though I do try to keep the books I really love & give the rest to the local library.

2. teany book by Moby & Kelly Tisdale and Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda by Romeo Dallaire.

3. There's A Spiritual Solution To Every Problem by Wayne Dyer.

4. This is tough as there have been a lot of great books that have stayed with me but I guess I would have to say: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver, Journey of Souls by Dr. Michael Newton, Manhattan Memoir: American Girl/Manhattan When I Was Young/Speaking With Strangers by Mary Cantwell and The Gastronomical Me by M.F.K. Fisher.

Mike

I like questions like these! I love books!!

1.Total Number of Books Owned

No clue. I have hundreds. Perhaps even over 1,000, if you can believe it. I have not read all the books and many of them should really go to someone who would enjoy them. At one time, I had designs on running a used computer-book store and bought a ton of books to push toward that effort. Those are the ones I should dump to someone who would enjoy them.


2.Last Book Bought

I bought two books: Getting Things Done by David Allen and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

3. Last Book Read
I read the Revenge Of The Sith novelization. Star Wars is a marketing machine isn't it. When you read the book, you learn more about the story in the movie. When you watch the Clone Wars cartoon series, you learn more about the story in the movie. Of course, you _CAN_ watch the movie without having read the novelization or read the cartoon, but if you want a fuller story, you must.
