I've been spanked by Meme!
Or tagged? What do the kids call it today?

Anyhoo, Oregano asked some hot questions and I will answer them.

How many books do you own?
No more than 10. I move so frequently that I keep more photographs than I do books, dinner plates, bottles of wine and rolls of toilet paper.

I never purchase a book unless I might read it again within the next two years.

What was the last book you bought?
Portrait of a Killer about the Jack the Ripper murders. I must have mentioned at least once that I am absolutely obsessed with true crime. (Save the bank robberies, forgeries, etc. It has to involve deep pathology to interest me. And then I find it hard to sleep and go to work.)

What was the last book you read?
Bo-ring. Same as above.

What five books mean a lot to you?
Are you my mother? -- The first book I remember my mother reading to me.

Lord of the Flies -- The poignant pages from my young adulthood.

Fahrenheit 451 -- Because I hope it's inconceivable.

The Lovely Bones -- I can't get it entirely out of my head.

You Are Worthless -- Because I love to laugh.

Phew. Any other questions? Bring 'em.

I feel so dirty.

I just finished The Time Traveler's Wife which was awesome...my fav book of all time is a contemporary novel by an Indian woman (Arundahati Roy) titled The God of Small Things...and of course there is always the fab Harry Potter!

I love the Harry Potter books. On CD. I find that adults are as obsessed with those books if not more than children are. Good stuff.

Kris, I can't even fathom owning just 10 books. This weekend I thought I was awesome because my "books I haven't read yet" collection was down to one shelf--then I remembered the dozen or so books that I haven't even taken out of their shopping bag....oh well.

Used to have an hour long commute so read like a madman back in the day. Now, I'm exceptionally slow, but I feel bad about it if that's any consolation.

Just finished The Black Dahlia wherein everyone is in some way awful--cop, crook, or innocent bystander. Liked it a lot. I think Dick Wolf reads a lot of James Elroy.

Just started In a Sunburned Country, which is the first bit of travel fiction I've ever read. Sweet job to have is all I've got to say.
