Tag, I'm It!

Aah! Isnt' the putty tat sweet. I watched Shrek 2 again this weekend, and I loved it even more the second time around. (FYI-Is it just me or do other people actually pay attention to the 'Be Kind, Rewind' tag on the videos? I can't tell you how many videos I've taken out of the library or rented that people haven't rewound. Come on, it doesn't take that much time, people!)

So, since I haven't been tagged by anyone, I'm tagging myself.

Total number of books I own: Heh... Erm. A lot. 6 bookshelves at hhome at the moment. I used to have more, but they were destroyed when the special house my father built for them at our house upstate, collapsed after a snowstorm. 8 garbage cans full of books destroyed. I wept for days. Consequently, I try not to get too attached to my books anymore.

2. Last book(s) I bought: Susan Kandel's new Cece Caruso mystery: Not a Girl Detective, Enchanted by Shanna Swendson,

3. Last book(s) I read:

SNOBS by Julian Fellowes, Nemesis by Peter Evans, Sex, Lies & Vampires by Katie Macalister, Spin Control by Nikki Burnham.

4. Five books that mean a lot to me: Do I have to choose just 5? Well, apart from Charlotte's Web, and The Chronicles of Narnia, these are the books that had the most profound effect on me growing up.

Little House in the Big Woods - Laura Ingalls Wilder (the first book I ever read in first grade)

The Diary of Anne Frank - profoundly effected me. I cried when I found out that she hadn't survived the concentration camp. Made me aware of man's inhumanity to his fellow man.

Go Ask Alice - this book scared me straight when it came to drugs.

Forever by Judy Blume - I've never been able to the name Ralph the same way after reading this book.

Madame Bovary - by Gustave Flaubert (words cannot describe how much I disliked Emma Bovary and my feelings haven't changed)

Katherine - by Anya Seton (started my love of historical fiction)

Sweet Savage Love by Rosemary Rogers (the first historical that I read that had sex in it )

5. Which 5 people would you most like to see fill this out in their blog? Vanessa Virtue! Lani Diane Rich, Michelle Cunnah, Mary Janice Davidson, Liz Maverick.
