for tagging me - here goes1. Total number of books I’ve owned
Ha ha ha ha ha (rolls across floor into bookshelf) ha ha! Like I, a confirmed read-a-holic who has been reading since she was three (makes 44 years), could answer that. Not to mention being a homeschool mom of 2 with at any given time, a library full of reading books at the kids various levels, along with textbooks. You have got to be kidding. And no, I’m not going to go count. P~~~~~~~~~. Counting would take hours just going through the boxes in the attic.
My best guess is that we probably have around 5k in the house at this moment. But I’ll guarantee I’ll add to it at the next garage sale or shopping trip.
Through my childhood I owned so many it was amazing. Spent every penny I could earn on books, as well as keeping my parents broke buying them for me (to keep me out of trouble - WEG). By the time I was 8, had read every book in our small town public library as well, and was having my brother check out books for me from the small college library.2. The last book I bought.
The entire collection of Poe, for my son, Ernst & Young’s Tax Guide, Mensa Mind Challenges, for my other son, Nancy Fridays My Secret Garden and Susie Santiago’s Many Kisses (have just started), Perl Core Language, Leonard Peltier’s Prison Writings, plus Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazines. Q hates it when I go into a bookstore. I can’t leave for less than a C-note. What can I say, I just love the smell of book lint.3. The last book I read.
I actually re-read an old favorite. Mary Summer Rain’s Phoenix Rising (Got lucky here – I usually read 4-5 simultaneously but I have been to busy reading on the web instead – WEG)4. 5 Books that mean a lot to you.
5 is not enough. So I’ll just list them by author blocks. And I’m sure I’ll leave out a few.Richard Bach

Told ya I had way too many to list. (Yeah, I know. I can’t count)5. Tag 5 people and request they fill this out on their journal. Collar purple – Invidia
