Book Tag

Claire tagged me. Like her, I don’t usually do this sort of thing, but this seemed more fun than usual, so here goes. I tried to track down where it started, but ran out of patience eightteen people deep.

Total Number of books I’ve owned:

In excess of twenty-five hundred. I currently have over two thousand books on hand, and the missing hundreds were mostly paperbacks that were sold while I was going to college.

Last book I bought:

Last book I read:

I’m currently in the midst of three books. These are all ones I’ve been working on for a while, and I probably will be for a while longer.

Last book I finished:

Took me a few hours of rummaging around in dusty mental corners to come up with these.

Five people I’d like to see to do this as well:
