Blogger Tips and TricksLatest Tips And TricksBlogger Tricks



I just noticed I got tagged by Serra, my first tagging.

Sometimes I do these, sometimes I don't. I think I'll do this one. Haven't seen it before.

For some reason, no one tags me for meme's...until now. Evilsciencechick at ...but mostly rants however, has done just that. So, here's my answers to the five-question book meme.

1) What is the total number of books I've owned?
It takes me forever to read a book. I don't usually throw them out after I read them though. And I never go to the library. I have a bookcase downstairs and in my computer room. I have novels as well as reference books and school books. I probably have no more than 50.

2) What is the last book I bought?
Last book I bought I think was Paul Theroux's collected stories. It's a bunch of short stories. He's a well known author that writes travel books. So, when I bought this I was expecting a bunch of short travel stories, but I was wrong. It wasn't anything like I expected. I've read 2 of the 50 or so short stories in the book. Not sure if I'll ever get around to reading the rest. It's kind of my backup book.

3) What is the last book I've read?
Well the book I'm reading now is called The Sex Lives of Cannibals by J. Maarten Troost. I know what you're thinking, but the book really isn't about sex or cannibals. It's a book about this couple that goes to some strange island in the south pacific and all the stuff they go through while there. It's actually pretty funny. Doug got it for me cuz I was looking for a travel book to read.

4) What are the 5 (plus) books that have meant a lot to me?
Hmm good question. I dunno if they really mean that much to me but I guess my fav books are: Lion Witch & Wardrobe, Johnathan Livingston Seagull, The Little Prince, Harry Potter, The Bible. Hmm most of these are these are kids books...

Extra credit question, 'What book would you wish to buy next?':
Will probably buy the next book in the Left Behind series called The Rising.

TAG! (5 people whose collections I want to pry into):
Not gonna bother with this one cuz I doubt anyone would actually do this or they already have.


  1. YAYYYYYYYYYYYY! You did it! Thanks a bunch for being a good sport.

    I never read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, dunno how I missed it.

  2. Cool! I could have sworn I tagged you once...maybe next time.

    Hmmm, I might have to answer these myself...

    Did you see there's a Narnia movie coming out at Christmas? Looks like they might be doing a good job with it.

  3. Hmm don't think you did. If you did maybe I didn't know what it was for.

    I hadn't heard that I'll have to keep my eyes open for it. I still wanna see the new charlie and the Choc Factory!
