First things first. Raisin has a blog! You'll find her name over the left side there. Also, The Archer has been up for a while and I haven't got a link for him yet. Two more Seaburians converted to blogging. Trevor seems to have left his mark. Woot!
I got tagged from Ryan for this book game. Now, I have a confession to make: I don't actually read all that much. Chalk it up to too much school, or all that sitting still, or that lack of other people involved in the activity, or how darn slow I am at it, but I just don't sit and read a whole lot when I'm in school unless its for school. Of course, Ryan and I have had this conversation, and I like to tease him about how much he does read (how on earth does he do his schoolwork and do all the fun reading??). Anyway, I can't resist being tagged, so here goes:
How Many Books Do You Own?
According to my Bookster list, I own 296 books. But, that only includes the two shelves in my office - so probably almost double that for all of our books.
What is the Last Book You Bought?
Um. I think it was when I bought books for the spring term, so that doesn't help. My next book purchase will probably be God's Politics by Jim Wallis, a pre-order of Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince, or else a graduation gift for Luke.
What was the last book you read?
I just started reading Prayer is a Place by Phyllis Tickle. My mother-in-law picked up an autographed copy for me from the Religious Booksellers Convention, and gave it to me for graduation.
Name five books that mean a lot to you.
(yeah, I'm taking The Archer's take and saying that the Bible is a given. And for me, so is the Hymnal)
To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
Moosewood Cooks At Home by The Moosewood Collective and Molly Katzen
Telling Secrets by Fredrich Buechner
The Bible and The New York Times by Fleming Rutledge
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
And now it's my turn to tag: So I tag Micah, Todd, Frog, Lizzie and Mark. Enjoy!
