The Book Meme

1) Total num­ber of books owned?
Read­er­ware says 1447, but I’m not done with the inven­to­ry yet. We’ve weed­ed out our col­lec­tion repeat­ed­ly over the last sev­en years, and I’ve been doing so longer than that. If it isn’t some­thing we’ll read or refer to repeat­ed­ly, it isn’t worth the shelf space (or box space, when moving).

2) The last book I bought?
I bought sev­er­al last week:
You Can Do It!: The Mer­it Badge Hand­book For Grown-up Girls
Cru­cial Confrontations
Hand­fast­ing and Wed­ding Rit­u­al: Invit­ing Her­a’s Blessing

3) The last book I read?
I’m cur­rent­ly read­ing The Swords­man­’s Oath, Fibromyal­gia and Female Sex­u­al­i­ty, Plur­al Loves: Designs for Bi and Poly Liv­ing, and Cru­cial Con­ver­sa­tions.

4) 5 books that mean a lot to me?
You’ve real­ly got to be kid­ding. Only 5 books?
Dumb­ing Us Down by John Tay­lor Gatto
Rad­i­cal Hon­esty by Brad Blanton
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
The entire Liaden series by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller (yes, I’m cheat­ing there, but I can’t pick just one)
The Trig­ger Point Ther­a­py Work­book by Claire Davies

5) It said to list five peo­ple who should fill this out on their LJs.
I’m assum­ing that should be peo­ple who haven’t done it yet? I’ll pick peo­ple who actu­al­ly read LJ on a reg­u­lar basis 😉
