06:18 pm - Wake up all!!!

1. Total number of books owned: 

In the hundreds (like a goldfish grows to the size of it's bowl, if I had more room, I'd have more books...they are directly proportional to the space available to keep them.)


2. The last book I bought: 

The Other Boleyn Girl ~Phillippa Gregory although, almost picked up Middlesex the other day....


3. The last book I read: 

Reread The Perks of Being a Wallflower, am currently reading The Other Boleyn Girl and Ishmael by Daniel Quinn


4. 5 books that mean a lot to me:
    

1)  The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chobsky  (It's like an old friend that always comforts me)

2)  Secret Life of Bees - Sue Monk Kid  (I read it to my mom while she was in the ICU at IU)

3)  Bastard Out of Carolina - Dorothy Allison  (It's like she looked into my soul and wrote my story)

4)  What Dreams May Come - Richard Mattheson  (It's one of the ultimate love stories)

5)  Rubyfruit Jungle - Rita Mae Brown  (The first queer book I read, it made me feel not so alone)

 

Thanks for playing our game.

Hey, I know this was done a while ago but I just joined and couldn't resist doing this myself. I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower - I keep recomending it to anyone that hasn't read it : ) It's just beautiful.

1. Total number of books owned:

too many and not enough. Charity shops and second hand book shops make it so.


2. The last book I bought:

The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan - I've read The Joy Luck Club and thought it was brilliant.


3. The last book I read:

Gertrude by Hermann Hesse


4. 5 books that mean a lot to me:

1) The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chobsky

2) all the books of Hermann Hesse that I've read- I can't choose

3) 1984 by George Orwell

4) Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

5) The White Hotel by DM Thomas

Hi, I just joined this community so I'll fill this out too.

1. Total number of books owned: about 50 or so. I borrow most books I read.

2. Last book I bought: "Infinite Insights into Kenpo" by Ed Parker

3. Last book I read: "Slaughter-House Five" by Kurt Vonnegunt, Jr.

4. 5 books that mean a lot to me:

1) "Johnny Got His Gun" by Dalton Trumbo (to me it was a comparison of ordinary life to the horrors and living death of war)
2) "An Acceptable Time" by Madeline L'Engle (there was so much in that book that brought up questions of perception and humanity)
3) "Keeping You A Secret" by Julie Anne Peters
4) "Word I Wish I Wrote" by Robert Fulghum (a book of quotations and annotations; it's so full of insight)
5) "The Watcher" by James Howe (It's amazing to be all things we can hide, just below the surface. It's amazing, too, what can be solved if we reach out)
