Oh, great.

Thanks, Jana.

Now I have to show everyone how little I've read over the past year of my life.

I will do this through a post as it doesn't really fit with my blog at the moment.

1. Not sure how many I own, probably close to a thousand. I like to have a copy of every book I read in my library. Running out room.

2. Last book I bought: Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track: The Letters of Richard P. Feynman Haven't read it yet, just finished Joy at Work. Currently re-reading Book 3 of the Thomas Covenant series, The Power That Preserves

4: This is impossible! But I will list the 5 that pop to mind, no order of precedent: 1)Mere Discipleship (Camp); 2)Lord of the Rings series; 3)Bible; 4)The Gap series (Donaldson) 5) The New Economics and Out of the Crisis (Deming) 6) Joy at Work. More than 5, so shoot me...

5. Bonhofer; McClaren; Any classic I have not already; any new release by Stephen R. Donaldson;

Really? Is this me? I'm quite sure I've never been tagged online before. How cool!

I'll post my answers on my blog. Of course, if the Michele on your list isn't me, I'm an idiot. But what's new, right?! :)
