Books meme


daehith pinged me with this one, so here it is:

  1. Total number of books owned? Hmmm, let's see - 7 boxes of paperbacks shipped out from Philadelphia, figure about 60 books per box, that's 420, plus the ones I've bought since... I'd say about 500 books then (less than I thought!).

  2. The last book I bought? The Miserable Mill and The Austere Academy, numbers 4 and 5 of the Lemony Snicket A Series of Unfortunate Events series (as well as Tim Curry's reading of The Bad Beginning on CD).

  3. The last book I read? I last read A Time To Be Born by John Vornholt (Star Trek novel) and One Step From Earth by Harry Harrison last but I can't remember which I finished last. I'm currently in the middle of Summoning Light, the second book in the Babylon 5 Techno-Mages trilogy. I also finished listened to Jim Dale reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on CD in the car last week.

  4. Five books that mean a lot to me:

    1. Illusions: Confessions of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach - meant a lot to me when I first read it, especially since Steve introduced it to me when we were doing Drama Ink's first production, Godspell (yes, I was Jesus).
    2. "The Incarnations of Immortality" series by Piers Anthony (7 books, but I think of them as a set) - a lot of people pass it off as fluffy bunk, but I find them interesting and re-read the series every few years (in fact, I'm about due).
    3. All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum - after I read this book I decided my last career in life would be a UU minister.
    4. Borrowed Time: An AIDS Memoir by Paul Monette - we were just discussing this last night over dinner, and I mentioned I met Monette at a booksigning for Becoming A Man just a year or two before he died, when we discussed the piece Ned Rorem had written from one of his poems and I'd performed with the Spruce Street Singers in Philadelphia. My friend Ruth introduced me to the book and, like she, I was so exhausted after reading it that I felt just a little bit like what he'd gone through with his partner.
    5. On Being Gay by Brian McNaught - always enjoyed this collection of essays, especially the one titled "I Like It" with many reasons to like being gay.


  5. Tag 5 people and have them fill this out on their LJs: No tagging, but feel free to do this one if you haven't already.

I would just like to say that it is profoundly weird to me that you and daehith found each other.

Not bad.

Just weird.

Nope. You just have a lot in common, I think. Other than her being a girl and all. ;)

It's all your fault, you know. You asked if you could show the picture of cheerleader Draug to esprix, and that piqued my curiousity. So I started stalking him on LJ.

Sorry about that - I don't always keep up as well as I'd like.
