You're it! (Book version)

1) Total number of books owned
Lots. I have, um, 3 6 foot bookcases full, plus some in boxes. The garage and spare room are covered. If this gives you any idea, I think I have 10 or so on my nightstand.

2) The last book I bought
2 - The Drawing of the Three, Stephen King and Faith of the Fallen, Terry Goodkind

3) The last book I read?
Last weekend I finished The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three and am currently in the middle of The Eyes of the Dragon (also King). I'm also reading a Roald Dahl Omnibus and King, Warrior, Magician, Lover : Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine. Some day, I will finish this book.

4) Five books that mean a lot to me
This is really hard. How do I pick 5? Let's see, off the top of my head:
American Gods - introduced me to Neil Gaiman (Love his writing! Love, love, love it!)
The Gunslinger - introduced me to Stephen King in a good way
The Snow Queen, Vinge - got me out of a rut of trash novels in college. It was like a breath of fresh air.
Who Moved My Cheese - I know, it's a terrible title and a horrific story. But it reminds me that goals change and living in the past is a recipe for disaster.
The Black Stallion - I loved these books as a kid. In fact, I never could give them up. They're still sitting on a shelf, waiting for the next generation.

5) Tag some people to fill this out on their LJs.
Hmmmm. If you want to...
