Books Books and More Books

Stolen from babelbabe because I do need the distraction:

1.Number of books I have owned: In the low thousands.

2. Last book I bought: Valley of the Kings by John Romer; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

3. Last book I completed: The Wastelands by Stephen King -- this is part of his Dark Tower series and I decided to read the entire series over again. Currently I'm on The Wizard and Glass.

4. Five (or more) books that mean a lot to me: (not in order)
1. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
2. Star Man's Son by Andre Norton (when I read this book it was called Daybreak 2250 A.D.) 3. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.
4. The Millstone by Margaret Drabble.
5. Possession by A.S. Byatt.

5. What are you currently reading? Usually I have several things I'm reading at once; right now there is just the one: The Wizard and Glass by Stephen King.

To which 5 bloggers are you passing this on? Whoever feels like it.

The Historian is on my list of books to read too. It looks like it will be very interesting. - Flourish

Flourish: It's interesting and I liked it but it took me a long time to read and I'm a pretty fast reader, so be prepared for that.

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson...I read it for my Children's Literacy class a few years back and loved it. I have a special place in my heart for children's literature.
