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
Handfasting and Wedding Ritual: Inviting Hera’s Blessing
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 😉
